Renoir is a great painter. But I have to say I was a little disappointed by it. I am definitely artsy but not an art expert and I have to say I didn't really like the exposition as much. I wish I came another time.

A visit to Martigny at the Fondation is also worth the detour. Years after years Giannadda is presenting exhibitions from renomed museum or private collections, and works we could not see elswehre. The present presentation is coming mostly from a private collectionist and ist Fondation of Art, culture and history, showing important 150 works from swiss peinters like Anker, Hodler,... More

We also caught the Renoir exhibit, in the offseason, after resisting the temptation to spend something like 80 CHF per person for the honor. It was Sunday, the town was dutifully Catholic- dead, and yet we noticed a teeming crowd converging on, surprise. the Gianadda exhibit! We happily que'd up to get in, and it was now 20CHF per person.... More

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.

Great place to enjoy painting exhibition! The gallery shows divers artists during the year, a great place to admire original paintings from great artists, also have a look at the old car exhibition underground.

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.
