In the famous French-style garden of the Biron Mansion, not far from the Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, you can admire some of the most beautiful sculptures by one of France's greatest artists, Auguste Rodin. Some are especially famous, like The Thinker, The Burghers of Calais and The Gates of Hell.
The visit to the Rodin Museum then continues inside the elegant 18th-century mansion, which is a listed Historic Monument. Here, you can enjoy other works by the great master, such as The Kiss, as well as pieces by his muse Camille Claudel, like The Waltz and The Wave.
Be sure to take a look at the impressive Marble Gallery, which is aptly named, as well as the old chapel. The latter, inaugurated in 2005 after several years of renovation work, contains an area for temporary exhibitions, as well as an auditorium and a book and gift shop on the theme of sculpture and the works of Rodin.
