The Museum was the gift of movie-theater magnate Jules Mastbaum and opened in 1929. It holds the largest collection of Rodinís work outside of Paris.

The best-known of Rodin's works, The Thinker (1880-1882), sits outside the museum in the entry courtyard.

The original entrance to the museum took visitors through a cast of The Gates of Hell, a massive 5.5m-high bronze doorway. These doors are no longer used.
