Weekend at the Musée Rodin

One of my favourite Museums in Paris is the Musée Rodin, located at 79 Rue de Varenne in the 7th Arrondissement. Who would have known that here on the Left Bank, there is still a Mansion, with beautiful gardens filled with sculptures created by Auguste Rodin himself? The mansion is the Hôtel Biron which showcase all of the famous sculptures by Rodin especially the The Thinker, The Kiss and The Age of Bronze. Right outside the garden are sculptural hedges and divine roses all grouped together to smell so good. Scattered around the garden are more Sculptures completed by Rodin like the Gates of Hell, The Burghers of Calais and Balzac. You will be surprised that this place exist in the heart of Paris right beside the L'Hotel des Invalides which is in view from the gardens. This Museum is also a walking distance from the Musée d'Orsay. When in Paris, go discover the Musée Rodin inside and out. I suggest that you walk from the Musée D'Orsay as you will discover many more including the Parisian cafes and shops on the Left Bank. The Musée Rodin is also currently the home of the fashion shows of Christian Dior.

Just like Michelangelo, Rodin has mastered the sculpture of the human body down to its dramatic and accurate shape and parts.

Christian Dior has made the Musée Rodin their home to present their fashion shows.

After visiting the Musée Rodin then Les Invalides, we walked back to Champs Élysées to have some afternoon snack at Ladurée. 
It was a lovely day spent in Paris. 

Bon Weekend!
