Many areas of the museum were closed as it was a slow time of year for them. We only got to do the outside exhibits, but they only charged us a minimum . We missed the Renoir exhibit by a few days, but saw a few beautiful pieces as they were packing up.

I love the fact that it is small and one can even take in a major exhibition (such as the current Renoir) in under an hour. OK one can't do the whole museum (car museum, statues in the park, a whole building on Leonardo da Vinci, the roman artifacts, etc.) in any one visit, but the quality is extraordinary. Every...

I have visited this gallery three times for different exhibitions and have always enjoyed it immensely. The exhibitions are outstanding, the Roman artifacts are beautifully laid out, and the sculpture garden is worth seeing again and again. There is plenty of parking and a nice, friendly tea garden. It is well worth keeping an eye on what exhibitions are showing,... More

It's a nice local museum. There was a nice park with sculptures and exhibitions of Renoir and Leonardo (temporary) were very nice.

What a museum in a small town!! Roman artifacts on the top floor, Renoir in the middle and old cars in the basement. The current town is nondescript, but this museum makes it a must visit. The historical artifacts from Cesar's time makes it worth it. You could go again and again. So much to see.

We went for the Renoir exhibition, but the highlight was actually the attached car museum. Loads of cars from the late 1890's onwards and many brands that you will never have heard of. We will be back for sure.

Fondation Pierre Gianadda is a small but perfectly formed art gallery, which has hosted some excellent exhibitions over the years. Its sculpture garden is particularly splendid, nestled beneath the mountains and surrounded by trees. There is a permanent range of pieces from great sculptors like Niki de St. Phalle. The outside cafe is a welcome feature on a sunny day.... More

The Renoir exhibit until November 23 was really incredible but who knew they also had dozens of old cars on display in the basement. Plus Roman ruins - just great and well worth the visit from Geneva.
