Rodin Museum in Philly to reopen after renovations
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -July 12, 2012 (WPVI) -- At the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia, everything old is new again.
It is reopening Friday after a more than three-year, $9 million renovation that returns the small museum's galleries and landscaped gardens to the way its original architects intended when it opened in 1929.
The museum is between the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the new Barnes Foundation on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Philadelphia's Rodin Museum has the largest collection outside of Paris of the French artist's sculptures. It was a gift to the city from movie theater magnate Jules Mastbaum and is managed by the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
