Musée Bourdelle information
Lonely Planet review
Monumental bronzes fill the house and workshop where sculptor Antoine Bourdelle (1861–1929), a pupil of Rodin, lived and worked.

The museum usually has a temporary exhibition (attracting an admission fee) going on alongside its free permanent collection.
