Rodin Museum in Philly reopens with look from 1929

Visitors walk out towards the formal French garden, fountain and reflecting pool of the Rodin Museum, Thursday, July 12, 2012, in Philadelphia. For the first time since the museum opened in 1929, the public will get to see it as its architects intended. The Rodin Museum reopens Friday after a more than three-year, $9 million renovation that returned all its sculptures to their original locations inside and out, refurbished almost all of them.
