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.

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.
