Recently renovated and expanded, this museum is a testament to the sculptor Antoine Bourdelle, whose work went far beyond the 10 years he spent as Rodin’s assistant. A renowned teacher who influenced an entire generation of sculptors, including Alberto Giacometti and Aristide Maillol, Bourdelle was one of the pioneers of 20th-century monumental sculpture. Proud, muscular centaurs, gods, and goddesses stride across these rooms, as well as monuments to famous people. You can also visit the sculptor’s studio. Audioguides in English (5€) are a big help here.
