The museum, which opened to the public in 1929, houses 124 sculptures, including bronze casts of the artist's greatest works - The Thinker, perhaps the most famous sculpture in the world .. The Burghers of Calais, his most heroic and moving historical tribute .. Eternal Springtime, one of the most powerful works dealing with human love; powerful monuments to leading French intellectuals such as Apotheosis of Victor Hugo .. and the culminating creation of his career, The Gates of Hell, on which the artist worked from 1880 until his death in 1917.
