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.

It is admirable, the things Mr. Gianadda has accomplished in the city of Martigny. He is a visionary in some way, decided to dedicate a foundation and museum to his brother Pierre, who died unfortunately. The collections the foundation is able to portray in a village with only 17.000 inhabitants is incredible. And another thing is true: if you come... More

We took in the Renoir exhibit including some 50 paintings from collections from all over the world. Renoir's famous bath scenes are well represented as are some of his better portraits of both ladies and children. The exhibit also includes 2 bronze sculptures one of which is on permanent display here. Tastefully done and worth seeking out near the Roman... More

We call in here whenever we have time to spare during trips to the Valais. It is always worth a detour. The current Renoir exposition is of the usual high quality. We invariably go round the outdoor sculpture park too, t see whether the sheep have acquired any more lambs. The wolves were fortunately separated from the sheep by a... More
