I love museums, which is why Paris is likely my favorite city in the world. On any given day here, I’ll pick a museum I haven’t yet visited, and wander around for hours. The last time I was in Paris back in April, I arrived at Musee Rodin just before it was closing. I didn’t have ample enough time to visit the museum, but I did take the opportunity to explore the gardens, which is well worth the four Euros just to enter the lush area.
Of course, there’s the famous Thinker statue and a stunning variety of sculptures in the garden, as well as some pieces that just make you stop and stare for a few minutes.
It’s very serene and picturesque and a great place to sit and escape the busy city for a while. The sights are incredible and really capture the magic of the artist.
This past weekend, I went back to Musee Rodin to see the gardens (again) and visit the museum as well. The museum is filled with even more captivating sculptures of all sizes, plus plenty of paintings by Rodin. In short, I love the experience of the gardens (much) more than the museum, but it’s still a must-see if you’re in town.
