For Rodin, creating sculpture was a refuge from a complicated but always fascinating life. This tour examines his work as a means to understand the key episodes of his career: his early struggles to secure his reputation with works like Age of Bronze, his affair with sculptor and model Camille Claudel, and the humiliating scandal surrounding his most ambitious monument, Balzac at the Salon of 1898. Although these works and others are universally admired today, they were often seen as awkwardly out of step with the sculpture of his day. This tour aims to give you a better understanding of Rodin’s innovations in their historical context. How did works like Gates of Hell and Burghers of Calais forever change the notion of the sculpted monument? We explore, among other things, Rodin’s experimental working method, his preference for the expressive part over the finished whole, and his attention to the complexity of our own viewing experience.
Your guide will bring your tickets, and together you’ll use a priority access line to enter the museum. There may be a wait for the required security screening, however.

Our guides are trained to lead wheelchair-accessible tours that use the ramps and elevators at the Rodin museum.
We can assist you in borrowing a free wheelchair on site, with your ID. We recommend this to visitors with limited mobility, since navigating the museum can be physically demanding. Please specify your mobility needs when booking online.
Only cane strollers for children are allowed inside the museum.
A Wealth of Information
We took a Musée Rodin tour with Paris Muse and I must admit that we did not have much prior knowledge about Rodin. However the tour changed that! Our guide Pamela was a wealth of information, and made the experience very interesting. We had great discussions with her, and still talk today about what we saw and learned. We look at photos and say “remember how Pamela explained…”. What more can you ask for?
Very Happy Repeat Customers - Paris Muse is a Treasure
A few years ago, we discovered Paris Muse and engaged in tours of the Louvre, D'Orsay, Le Marais and Montmartre. All were excellent, each with a different guide. Given the great experience then, this time we engaged in two tours (L'Orangerie with guide Claire, and Musee Rodin, with guide Stephanie). In both cases, we couldn't have asked for more. Our guides were early, easy-to-find, and welcoming. The tours themselves were engaging, entertaining, and incredibly educational, as each guide we've worked brings to the table bona fide expertise in the subject of each tour. . . . We look forward to our next trip to Paris, when we plan to continue to partner with Paris Muse to get the most out of our museum/neighborhood exploration.
A perfect balance of educational and fun experiences
I have been going to Paris for the last 20 years in various capacities - love the city and consider myself somewhat knowledgeable about its many sites. When the time came to bring along my 13 year-old I wanted to ensure she would have a great experience without the overload of historical facts and boring museum walks. So I chose Paris Muse for two amazing tours and I would have done one per day had they had any availability.. . . We went with Paris Muse to the Rodin Museum where the guide took us on a journey of this amazing artist - not just admiring his work but his story, his process and showcasing his revolutionary methods in the time he lived. IF you are going to Paris, the Paris Muse experience is an absolute must - a perfect balance of education and fun interesting experiences.
