Day 3


Today we took the metro to Orangerie Museum but was closed (maybe in support of the protesters) not sure. People were lined up in hopes it might open later. We moved on to the Rodin Museum a little walk further and found it closed as well. We were told it may open at 11:00. So
we walked around some more trying to find the sunshine. When coming back around there was
a much longer line including young, young children (kindergarten), who were very excited singing and full of energy. We were let in and explored along with the children. Wow, talk about an art education. They had adults to help but they had to identify/locate with pictures in hand, some
of Rodin's pieces. It was an amazing show of Rodin's works. The Orangerie was still closed when checking again.

  3. Yes Sam, their adult (teacher?) had given each kid a picture and they were to find the piece of art. We were very impressed.
