The Palais Lumière in Evian is one of the most beautiful building in front of the Leman Lake, that was a thermal center in which you can see expositions now. There are 2 or 3 expositions per years in the Palace, on different subjects. The...More

I thought this was a public building that was worth visiting because of its art nouveau architecture. I paid my entrance fee (20 euros) which I thought was a bit steep - only to discover that this building is just an exhibition space. On show...More

To enter this beautiful building and visit the gift shop - very nice and very helpful even in English - is free and everyone should do this as a minimum. I chose to visit the Picasso’s Minotaur exhibit with English headphones for 14 euros. The...More

A beaut of a building overlooking the lake. When we visited it was exhibiting a possee of Picassos as part of an exhibition on the minotaur. All splendid stuff, but the building itself is worth an exhibition of its own. Take a look.

This is well worth a visit. Beautifully curated and with translation to English, we really enjoyed this exhibition on the theme of the Minotaur. We didn’t have a lot of time in Evian and managed to whizz round in 30-40 minutes. There’s a good gift...More
