“Nice gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

The exhibition I went this weekend was very nice. The garden is fabulous because there are nice sculptures and nice trees/flowers. There were ducks and some old Romain things (walls). I do not recommend in bringing young children because they might think it's boring. If you decide in bringing them they should bring a gameboy. Otherwise it is fun for all ages!

“Beautiful exhibitions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

The museum shows a private collection on a permanent basis and different temporary exhibitions from private collectors and other museums. Both the permanent and temporary exhibitions are of extremely high level and very interesting. The museum principally displays paintings and sculptures. The permanent exhibition includes a large, complete, and wonderful collection of historical auto models which merits a visit by itself.

“Good collection beautiful garden”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a good place to visit. The museum holds various exhibitions. It is currently showing Sam Szafran 50 years of painting.
There is also a back building dedicated to Leonardo da vinci.
There is also a permanent automobile exhibition which includes some rare swiss cars.
The sculptures in the garden arent to be missed.

Note - all the information inside the museum is in French and German.

“Impressive exhibitions and sculpture garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Always try to see the current exhibition whenever I am in the Martigny area, and to date I have never been disappointed. Just seen the Marcel Imsand exhibition (photographer) and especially liked his collection of photos of Luigi the shepherd - beautiful
