Together with architects John Sonnier and Dominique Ronsseray, Victor Vasarely established Foundation Vasarely in 1976. The trio wanted to promote "art for all" and of the "city of tomorrow." Study 42 large works of art, each 6 by 8 m (20 ft by 26 ft.) Vasarely's seven "cells" are hexagonal rooms that measure 14 m (46 ft) across and 11 m (36 ft) high. The French National Commission named the foundation a historic monument almost 40 years later.

  • Off the beaten path, but well worth a visit. Very modern, indoor and outdoor. Drive up the driveway and see if you can park at the top since the hill can be steep to climb.  more »

  • A nice, spectacular museum. Nearly half of the exposition is shut down for renovation though. Admission fee is a bit pricey, 9 euros for an adult and 4 euros for a child, considering the current situation of the museum.
  • Simple and interesting museum building! Very nice plateau where is placed this museum. Unfortunately it was under renovation when I went there.
  • We visited today with two teenage boys. Big succes. Everyone loved this small expo.Yes, the state of the building needs some serious renovation they are working on technical nstallations i think. This Does Not take away from the huge impact and significance of this Temple of futurist vision. Happy i bought a book at the shop.
  • Unique in the world, the building was built around the art work of Vazarely with many giant pieces of art.
  • Slightly run-down but nonetheless an amazingly good modern art museum. Fab building too!
