Rodin Museum Tour Description

Our private tour of the Rodin Museum offers you the opportunity to delve deeper into the life and art of Auguste Rodin in an amazing famous 18th century mansion which have been used as a studio and home by Rodin for over 20 years. A large portion of the museum’s collection comes from Rodin’s own personal collection,

The Rodin Museum Private Tour experience is an unique and intimate way to explore the works of one of the world’s greatest sculptor where the artist lived and worked.

You’ll learn the stories behind some of Rodin’s most famous sculptures and learn about the techniques he used to create them.

Also, discover the amazing Rodin art collection: Rodin was a fan of ancient Rome sculpture as of the paintings of his time (he was also himself a painter), his collection includes 3 Van Gogh.

Ancient sculpture profoundly influenced Rodin’s art. Rodin was an opponent of the restoration of sculptures. He firmly believed that fragments convey emotion and have a strong power of expression. This is how Rodin starts to work on fragments and to even removes the heads and limbs from his own figures. By doing so, Rodin created a new genre of contemporary art – “the headless, limbless torso.”

Each time the weather makes it possible, our private tour also includes a visit to the museum’s beautiful garden, where you’ll have the opportunity to stroll among the sculptures and take in the serene atmosphere of this place of exception.

Additionally, also learn about the beautiful mansion that houses the museum. Hôtel Biron is one of the most prestigious 18th-century mansions of the boulevard Saint Germain district with its neighbor Hôtel Matignon which is nothing less than the siege of the French prime minister and government.

Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a long-time fan of Rodin’s work, our private tour is the perfect way to experience and enjoy the museum at our own pace.
