Glorious renovation of the Rodin Museum is complete

The beloved Rodin Museum, housed in the Hotel Biron mansion, has been closed for three years. It reopens on November 12 and word is that the renovation is beautiful.  Rooms have been repainted that lovely deep grey that Rodin loved, the sculptures and paintings are lit with great care to help guests appreciate each object.

Once again, you enter the grounds through the great gates.  The outdoor grounds which are parklike and full of scale model sculptures invite meandering.  The cafe, tucked in a leafy corner, is still a very good choice for a light lunch or tea/coffee and patisserie.

The Rodin Museum has always been a favorite of many Paris visitors for its manageable size, fascinating collections, and its beauty.  Put this one on your list for your next visit to Paris.

Near Invalides and not hard to combine with the Orsay or the Eiffel Tower and things you want to do and see in the 7th.
