Whether you come to ski or hike in the Swiss Alps, don't miss the treasures at Foundation should you be in this area. Small, charming museum with a sculpture garden and a wonderful cafeteria in a unique setting!

I visited the foundation to see the Matisse exhibition and what a wonderful day I spent there. It cost 20 chfs to visit which initially I thought was expensive but turned out to be great value for money. The gallery itself is straightforward to find though the bus from the station stops in a street parallel to where the gallery... More

I am from Trinidad and visited the Fondation Pierre Gianadda Switzerland during my vacation to view the Renoir exhibition. Not only was this quite an adventure finding the place but actually visiting a Renoir and viewing works that I pored over as a child was a dream come true. That such a thing could be possible in my lifetime was... More

The Gianadda Foundation stage a couple of major exhibitions every year but also they have some permanent exhibits, a motor museum, scuptures in the garden and more. Your entrance ticket covers all areas. We didn't get to see everything but enjoyed all that we did see. If the weather is right then one can use the café in the garden,... More

The charge for entry here is 16fr. Until the 14th June they are showing exhibits from three main Swiss artists, Anker, Hadley, and Vollotton. Well worth a wander round and car parking is free. Downstairs is a small motor museum with amongst others some car makes from Swiss manufacturers little known now. If the weather is OK there are sculptures... More

Fondation Gianadda is the second most visited museum in Switzerland (after the Basel Art Museum), offers splendid temporary exhibitions, presents the most valuable pieces of Roman Antique discovered in Martigny, a wonderful collection of ancient cars (mostly Swiss production!) and the Foudation's gardens hosts a marvelous collection of moderne sculpture. Its acoustic is also excellent and the concerts of classical... More

The Fondation Pierre Gianadda is well worth a visit if you're ever in Martigny. Housed in a rather strange modern concrete building, on the inside it's spacious and light - good for exhibitions. We saw Renoir there. Pah - but that's personal taste for you. Though better than the temporary exhibition is the car museum which is part of the... More

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.
