In the fall of 2016, the museum unveiled a comprehensive renovation of the South Asian Art galleries which were named by BizBash as one of the top ten tech-forward event venues in Philadelphia.


From its Art Deco exterior to its skylit interior, the Perelman Building offers cutting-edge presentations of photography, costume and textiles, and modern and contemporary design that will surely give your guests something to talk about.

A hidden oasis in the city, the Rodin Museum is an ideal spot for vows, toasts, and other memorable moments. Guests will be welcomed at the entrance of the breathtaking Dorrance H. Hamilton Garden by Rodin’s The Thinker. In the galleries, they will be transported to another world by one of the largest public collections of Rodin’s work outside Paris. Host a gallery reception, or take the party outdoors to the enchanting garden and reflecting pool.
