Whether you like modern sculptures, fine arts or Roman remains, you can have it all the the Fondation Perre Gianadda in Martigny. I would not have thought of Martigny as a destination but now I look out for the program and make it there twice a year with great pleasure. Inside, great international exhibits, often with art from private collections... More

I have seen some fabulous exhibitions here - the latest one being Picasso. I can not rate this place highly enough. Also in lovely ground with some excellent modern sculptures. I would love to attend a concert here but only pass through Martigny once or twice a year driving from Italy to the Alps so always during the day. I... More

This summer, a late period Picasso exhibition is quite wonderful - as have been nearly all those we've ever been to here. It's a magical place.

It would have been easy to walk past had it not been for the extensive advertising around town for the exhibition. The building and gardens with cafe make for a flexible visit. The car exhibition alone is extensive with some rare vehicles. I feel for the price a simple leaflet in English would have helped explain so much more but... More

Like the dog museum across the road, this place also has an even more illogical assembly of a collection: modern art masterpieces and vintage cars. The sculpture garden is delightful and boasts some real treasures like Rodin's kiss. The car collection in he basement is also remarkable.

This was an architecturrally interesting building, with changing exhibitions every few months. Outside there are many sculptures in the gardens. Beneath this building is a car museum, with cars dating back to 1898, some very early Swiss cars as well, you can watch a movie on how one would purchase a car many years ago. This was by purchasing the... More

Fondation Gianadda is a unique museum attracting art lovers from the world for its permanent and temporary exhibitions. When we went there, it was all around Matisse and was exceptional. I also love the old cars display. And the garden is also worth a walk for its sculptures. Really don't miss it if you are around (Geneva in only 90... More
