Why locals recommend it
The museum houses the largest collection of work by Auguste Rodin, the father of modern sculpture. Rodin worked in the main building here, known as Hôtel Biron, and personally chose the location for all the pieces in the garden. It is such an idyllic setting, with rosebushes and fountains, that I go there twice a month just to read and draw. The life of Rodin is complex, so I suggest the audio guide. Also, don’t miss his masterpiece “The Gates of Hell,” located outside to the left of the entrance. He worked for years on it in plaster, but died before it was cast in bronze.

this is my favorite museum in Paris and particularly when the weather is good as you can walk in its gardens while admiring Rodin statues and enjoying a drink! 25min distance by metro: line 8 from Strasbourg Saint Denis and change on Invalides with line 13, get out at Varenne.
