Musée Rodin

There are places in the world where you immediately feel happier, more alive and complete, just by setting foot there. For some people, it’s the beach or a childhood home or a private island, I don’t know. For me, it’s Paris, but even more specifically, it’s the gardens of the Musée Rodin. There is no where, and nothing, I love more than this place. And happily, the main house reopened in early November after nearly two years of construction, though it was hard to go inside and leave the gardens when the weather was as glorious as it was that day.

People sometimes complain that Paris can be over-glorified with so many twee, Pinterest-y images flooding our collective conscious, and that’s true to a certain extent. The city isn’t just macarons and carrousels and accordion players under the Eiffel Tower. However, after spending the morning with my favorite artist, I can confirm: it really is all rainbows and bunnies. How lucky was I to spot both?

  • What a treat to see all your beautiful photos from Paris again! And I agree, the garden at the musée Rodin is really something extra. I was there this Summer (when the building was still closed for visits, but there was an exhibition on the ground-floor), a beautiful visit. Thank´s for refreshing my memories!

  • Le musée Rodin est un de mes préférés, j’aime beaucoup son lieu et bien sûr sa collection.

  • You make it seem so intimate and private :)

  • The grounds look magical – even in Winter.
