The Musée Rodin was opened in 1919 in the Hôtel Biron and its surrounding grounds. It displays works by the French sculptor Auguste Rodin. The collection contains most of his significant creations. Many of his sculptures are displayed in the extensive garden. Behind the facility you can find a small lake and a casual restaurant.
While living in the Villa des Brillants (in Meudon, suburbs of Paris), Rodin used the Hôtel Biron as his workshop and subsequently donated his entire collection of sculptures (along with paintings by Vincent van Gogh and Pierre-Auguste Renoir that he had acquired) to the French State on the condition that they turn the building into a museum dedicated to his works.
