I enjoyed this museum and it's layout. Entrance fee is your choice which gets deducted from the price of the Museum of Art. If you are pushed just check out the statues you can see from the outside (the gate at the front entrance to...More

This museum is a small gem. The exhibits are wonderfully displayed with a lot of information on the signs that help visitors put the work into context. The garden, where several of the larger pieces are, is a peaceful oasis.

A ten minute walk from here is the "Rocky" statue. There is a line to take a picture with Rocky. There is no line to take a picture with a Rodin. Choose Rodin.

While this does not have as many works as the Paris Rodin Museum, it is well worth the time when visiting Philadelphia

This is a nice stop after the main art museum. It's just a few galleries but has a great overview of Rodin's work. Use your ticket for the art museum to get in for free. A nice spot for an hour of art appreciation.

Honestly an hour is probably enough, but personally, sitting on the steps outside and just relaxing as it is a beautiful setting, might tack on some additional time :)
