Robin Museum

While riding my bike on Kelly Drive I came across this charming building and realize it was a Museum.

Now keep in mind; I probably past this building several times, but it wasn't until last month that I actually stop and check the place out.

What I am talking about is the Robin Museum located on 22nd at Benjamin Franklin Parkway. It’s free or a contribution of $3 per person is suggested, which is well worth the visit.
Free guided tours of the Rodin Museum are given to the public at 1:00 p.m. every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, and on the first and third Saturdays of the month.

All the sculptures in the museum were created by Auguste Rodin (French, 1840–1917). Most famous as a sculptor, he was the preeminent French sculptor of his time, and remains one of the few sculptors widely recognized outside the visual arts community.
His scultpors brought out realsim of his subjects. Truly brilliant. What a treat.

Tuesday through Sunday: 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
