Another important attraction in Martigny well worth visiting. It is located 500 meters away from Gianadda Foundation. Apart of interesting permanent and termporay exhibiions, you will find several dogs at the back of the museum. Best time is after the puppies are born! Check their website for exact time.

This was a disappointing visit, it was like a zoo, the dogs were in their well kept compounds and we walked around looking at them. One dog was taken out and we were able to pet it but as it was only one dog and everybody was trying to touch it so there were crowds around the dog which was... More

Lots of opportunities to see the dogs here. Small fee to enter the museum. Dog handlers walk the dogs around so you can pet them and take photos if you wish. Museum was an interesting history of the dogs and the hospice at the top of the pass.

Visited museum, disappointed to find entrance not free as previously read on TA but 12 francs each! Then advised that everything was in French, so gave us a booklet to read instead. Very interesting exhibits, lots of information, photos and paintings and of course a very expensive shop. Afterwards got to see dogs. Dogs very well cared for with beautiful... More

I made a special trip here after it was recommended by a work colleague who knew I was a huge dog lover - and felt I could not pass up a chance to see beautiful St Bernard dogs. It was nice for me to see the dogs and the young lady caring for them brought one out so I could... More

We visited the Barry Foundation on what happened to be their 10th anniversary. I loved getting to visit with the dogs and you can hug and snuggle them. They enjoyed it too, but were definitely tired at the end of the day from all the attention. THis is a free visit, but I strongly recommend donating to them. The Barry... More

We visited on a sunny day so enjoyed watching the dogs both inside and out. The kennels have a type of "boardwalk" so you can walk over the actual kennels and see the dogs on both sides. Naturally petting the dogs was the best part. The displays were mostly in French, but a movie about the hospice was easy for... More

Nice place for a rainy day. You can hug and pet the dogs ont he ground floor. There is a lot of information on the second floor. You can have a book with English text so you can understand the displays. There is also a shop where you can buy Saint Bernard related stuff. I have nice pictures with the... More

Great place. Dogs on the ground floor, museum on 2nd and 3rd floors. Staff brought out on the dogs for us to stroke, and were happy to chat to us about the dogs. Museum hugely interesting/ educational and well presented. Café downstairs for light bites and refreshments. Entrance fee about 10 CHF.

All the information on the 2nd floor onwards were in French. We were given a folder of some information in English. There was an area where you could see the dogs and there were about 9 puppies (3 weeks old) while we were there. The staff also brought out 1 of the dogs for us to pet. It's probably more... More
