The Hôtel Biron, built in 1728, has served as the Musée Rodin since 1919, and is situated on over 7 acres (3 hectacres) of gardens and sculptures. This grand entrance is a prelude to the amazing work of Rodin contained within these 18th Century walls.
The museum features the work of Rodin's muse, Camille Claudel, and others. When an exhibit dedicated to Claudel was held in the spring of 2008, there were over 150,000 visitors to the museum. Thinking it would be fabulous to see, I arrived to find a line that snaked for an eternity.
