Saw the new exhibition on the Lumiere Brothers, very helpful to have the exhibits explained also in English, would be helpful if the video could have English sub titles

Beautiful exhibition at this facility. Well curated and the building and surroundings were lovely. The boat ride from Geneva just added to the experience in a very positive manner.

Located near the front by Lake Geneva - popped in for a quick visit. Pricey to enter so we just looked around the front area. There is a nice shop selling stuff. They have exhibitions on all the time

This is a very good venue and its latest offering gives valuable insight into German Expressionist painting (early 20th century)

Quick stop over near Lake Geneva. Assume it gets very busy in summer with tourists but nice on this March day....near the Evian spring. Changing exhibitions...we viewed "The Last Impressionists" which was fantastic and a different view of artists than you would see in Paris. The next exhibit starting in June 2019 will be Expressionism of Germany which I'm sure will be just as interesting. The entry foyer glass work was especially beautiful. The 10euro entrance was well worth it. They also hold occasional concerts, tours and workshops - more info on their website.

I would not make a trip to go to the palace. However if you’re in Evian you have to visit. The exhibition was ok but not worth paying. To be honest you can skip the interior visto and only take pictures from the outside and have a view from the inside in the lobby and the store.

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 exhibit was interesting but perhaps not suitable for young children and many pieces are hung high. The display spaces do not have even a hint of the original building. It was one of these typical traveling curated exhibits - nice in a very quiet afternoon in sleepy Evian.

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.
