If you're looking for a place to sit and ponder, this is definitely the right place. Surrounded by copies of famous Rodin sculptures, the garden sits just outside the Stanford Cantor Arts Museum. Amongst the scattered sculptures, there is also hugely famous piece known as The Gates of Hell that watches over the rest of the sculpture garden. If you get the chance, make sure to swing by and have a look for yourself and see what kinds of things you can find in the gate sculpture.

Beyond the sculpture garden, there are also Rodin statues as you enter the main quad, and The Thinker used to sit on a pedestal in front of the library. While I like the Sculpture Garden by day, I think it is even more enjoyable at night, when all of the sculptures are lit, and you can have the garden to yourself.

The sculpture garden could take a few lessons from the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena when it comes to effectively displaying Rodin. That said, the sculptures overcome the inadequacies of the displays.

I wrote an entire research paper about Rodin's "Gates Of Hell" for an art history class. I've hung out here on many occasions, and it's really just a majestic, calming place to sit (especially at night). I've even come here with friends and a board game, because I love the surroundings. If I had enough money, I would have my own Rodin Sculpture Garden in my backyard! Or I could just move to the Stanford campus...
