The Garden at the Musée Rodin - One of the Best Deals in Paris

What is "The Thinker" pondering?  Perhaps he is wondering why so many people stand in line for hours waiting to get into the Musée du Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay when they could spend a quiet afternoon visiting him at the Musée Rodin.  Admission to the garden is 1 €, which is one of the best deals in Paris.

Pick up a free user guide at the entrance to help you locate some of Rodin's well-known works, such as "The Thinker", "The Burghers of Calais", and the "Gates of Hell".

Stroll under the shade of the chestnut and linden trees in the woodland area or follow the winding footpaths through the clumps of oak-leafed hydrangeas and bamboo in the Garden of Springs and the shrub-like peonies and ferns in the Garden of Orpheus.

Smell the roses that adorn the forecourt, sketch your favorite bronze, or read a book on one of the wooden lounge chairs at the very bottom of the garden.

Bring a sandwich to eat while sitting on a bench or have a cup of coffee at the Museum Cafe in the garden.  Enjoy your visit and your mini-break from the city!
