Many more statues and models inside the old hotel. Rodin made several models before making his larger statues. Several models were used in different pieces. Many were made separately, but were also used in his "Gates of Hell". I enjoyed "The Kiss" and "The Thinker" as well as his hand sculptures. He had a lot of detail in his work. The museum can be thoroughly viewed in about two hours, so it makes a good morning of afternoon tour. It is located across the street from the east side of Invalides.

I am not an art critic, but Rodin appears to be nationally acclaimed as an important 19th and early 20th century sculptor, and that seems right to me.
Outside at the front among the roses - there are 2000 bushes total in the two gardens - are some outstanding works; The Burghers of Calais and The Gates of Hell. Inside there are two floors of sculptures, including the well known Kiss.
Disadvantaged people can enjoy the ground floor and the gardens but there is no lift; even so, it is well worth a visit.
