The Rodin Museum
Opened to the public in 1929 in a beautiful Beaux Arts building on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Rodin Museum houses some 140 works in bronze, marble and plaster by the great French sculptor Auguste Rodin. A gift to the city from philanthropist and movie theatre magnate Jules Mastbaum, the Museum offers one of the most comprehensive collections of the artist’s work outside Paris.
This application presents thirty-one sculptures by Rodin with audio and visual information on the objects, the artist and the Museum in Philadelphia. Information is presented by a museum curator, conservator and architectural historian. Pinch screen technology allows for extreme close up views of each object. Users can select objects a random, follow one of three related themes, share experiences through social media, and contribute to the Museum’ s online presence through photo sharing.

What's New in Version 1.1
Great to have thus interactive audio tour. Unfortunately, it was completely buggy, and the audio clips stopped playing after a while.
I took a break from the fast paced traveling when in Philly and went to the Rodin on a quiet Monday morning. I used this app and it was perfect and amazing! It made the museum that much more beautiful and deep. I learned even more from listening to the app while looking at Rodin's beautiful sculptures. Make sure to bring headphones as not to disturb others in this beautiful museum. HIGHLY recommend. Loved it!!
