Beautiful arranged original and casted Rodin pieces in a nice setting by the Art Center. Adan and Eve and Meditations (with and without arms) caught our attention.

The Rodin sculpture garden is a beautiful outdoor art site to visit. Even at night it is beautifully lit. Definitely a must see if you are in the area.

The garden is lovely set next to the Cantor Museum in the midst of tree-shaded Stanford Univ. campus. An excellent collection that you can visit and even picnic near. Plus, more Rodin inside the free museum too. It does get busy on weekends.

The outdoor sculpture garden is a nice place to visit when you are out for a family bike ride. Even my teenage boys enjoyed it! If you have more time, go inside the museum next to the garden; it's free!

This is the largest collection of Rodin sculptures outside France. They provide additional interest to a visit to the Stanford campus, but not worth much time unless you are a Rodin scholar.

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.

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.
