“Another must see! This is a double whammy. Not only do you get the museum itself but as your entering, you are walking up the famous Rocky steps! The statue is there as well. “Hey Adrian!!””

“Admission to the Rodin Museum is Pay What You Wish; the garden is free year-round and it is closed on Tuesdays. This location contains the largest collection of sculptor Auguste Rodin's works outside Paris. ”

“You can spend hours at this museum. The main audio tour is very well done and subsequent audio tours cover every possible subject as it related to incarceration in the US. This is a must-see for lovers of history. The neighborhood it is situated in is also lovely. Really enjoyable walk to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and other museums.”
