“Local modern art museum”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Small museum in lovely setting, old chateau hidden in village of Alex. Exhibits are varied. Some better than others; Garden sculptures always pleasing. Opening times a bit of mystery so we only go on French National free-museum day when we are sure it is open.

“Exquisitely renovated ancient chateau with adventurous contemporary art cllection”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

Beautifully situated in the Rhone Alps near Lac d'Annecy, this jewel of a petite museum has a gorgeous sculpture garden and changing exhibits. The galleries are an harmonious mix of ultra modern and ancient with beautiful light and space. This rivals any of the great modern art museums of the world for the quality of the exhibits. If you are touring the area try to see the Chateau Menthon too which is right down the road, and have either lunch or dinner at Abbaye de Talloires at the southern end of Lac d'Annecy.
