The Rodin Museum is an art museum in Philadelphia that contains the largest collection of sculptor Auguste Rodin's works outside Paris. Opened in 1929, the museum is administered by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The best-known of Rodin's works, The Thinker (1880–1882), sits outside the museum in the entry courtyard. The museum's several rooms house many more of the artist's works, including The Kiss (1886), Eternal Springtime (1884), The Age of Bronze (1875–76), and The Burghers of Calais, a monument commissioned by the City of Calais in 1884.
