Musée Rodin en Juin



The gardens surrounding the lovely Musée Rodin are just spectacular in the summer. Formerly the Hôtel Biron, a small museum that is one of my very favorites in Paris.

A truly lovely place... just another of the many jewels of Paris.

Have you been to the sister Rodin Museum in Philadelphia perchance ?

Hope to see you soon !

This is one of my favourite places in Paris. I always go to Musee Rodin. But i go there to admire the work of Camille Claudel. She's my alltime favourite artist.

These lovely photos makes me want to go there right now.

This garden is spectacular. I went to Giverny and found the most amazing roses. Carla

Don't go on a Tuesday!!! Our one day in Paris from our last cruise was a Tuesday...no museums were open!!! Tuesday would be a great day to grab that book that you want to read by the fountain!!!

I do remember going to the Rodin museum years ago, the first time I was fortunate enough to be there!

You make me want to go back too! I was there in June last time too—and took pics of these lovely pink roses as well. :~}

You know these roses were not in bloom when I was there in April -- Is it too soon to start planning another visit for next year???
