Not to be missed. Wonderfully displayed. A special place to visit and to see the genius of Rodin. Go inside to see more especially the huge Thinker.

Small sculpture garden but very impressive. Rodin’s Gate of Hell is the main attraction - an incredible piece of art.

Stanford has the most complicated Rodin sculpture collections. Many people picnic by the garden. It’s festinating to watch the video in the art museum that demonstrated how these sculptures were made. Be sure to tour the art museum while you are in sculpture garden.

The boyfriend and I went there while on a casual, art date. The sculptures are all originals either made by Rodin himself or under his personal guidance. Although you’ve got the gates of hell in the background, it can be a very romantic setting if...More

It's nice to see this large collection of Rodin sculptures outdoors, right outside the Cantor, in dialogue with the open space, people, nature and surrounding buildings. At the same time, it is strongly recommended to step inside the museum and explore the collections.

No, it's not. These group of sculptures is right next to the Cantor Arts Center (museum). But not far from Memorial Church, on the Memorial Court Park, there is also a small group of Rodin sculptures.
