“Unexpected...”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

I went there just to waste my time and was not prepared to enjoy so much the Modigliani collection and the gardens.
Nonetheless some of my favorites are represented there but this takes place in an amasing place. Inside the light from the roof is impressive. Outside, the spectacular collection is magnified by the mountains around.

Try the "tarte à l'abricot"... A must have.

“Modigliani placed in the  context of his epoque”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The Gianadda museum in Martigny is a real gem, a human sized museum that hosts special as well as permanent exhibits. This time, the special exhibit was on Modigliani et l’École de Paris.

There are some lovely paintings and sculptures, interspersed with paintings from other artists of the epoque. There is also a photo exhibit depicting the different stages of the artist's life.

A nice way to spend a rainy day.

“A must see if you are in the area”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Generally 2 collections are displayed a year and, given Leonard Gianadda's wide network of acquaintances and friends in the art world, they are always spectacular and often quite rare. I wouldn't miss this unique opportunity to combine a good dose of art culture with all of the other wonderful outdoorsy stuff you can usually find in the Valais.

“The best exhibitions !!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We travel there for nearly every exhibition. You feel like being part of the few friends invited for a private show. The Modigliani exhibition is outstanding, you can see the painting as the one you have home. I love the center area where you can do 360° review of the show. Back to Modigliani, some weeks ago we were in Milan for the Modigliani/Soutine exhibition which we love but nothing compared to Gianadda where you can see so many wonderful paintings and sculpture from this artist. Stop thinking about it, go (do not forget to stop by the distillerie Morand for some local products).

“Great museum”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is a small but well-known museum. There are two parts: a permanent museum and seasonal painting exhibitions from the world-famous artists. So this is a place to come and see on many occasions.
