  • I like this place and I go 1 - 3 times a year. Unfortunately, during my visit to exhibition "Léonard Gianadda, 80 years of stories to share" the collaborator off films that engage automatically, 15-20 minutes before the close of this exhibition.

  • Beautiful exhibition but very very unpleasant, l acceptable limit. Repeated several times for a very small handbag accepted and not then again yes! While nothing never prohibited (unless of course the backpacks) lockers to key, as in many museums, solves this problem easily! And whisper more, because here too get you quickly to the order! Too bad because the exhibition we liked, but I will not return to this place.

  • First of all, this museum has a very nice architecture, each year there are varied and very interesting exhibitions. Exposure of the cars which is, she, year-round is fabulous!

  • Always interesting exhibitions, well presented and displayed. The only regret is that for an well-known international foundation, in these days, you would expect to see captions and information in English as well besides French only - not even German nor Italian, the other Swiss national languages.
  • Greatest museum for modern art in Wallis.
  • Superb exhibition on the last Picasso´s production..
  • Always great exhibitions. The last time I visited in Dec 2015 I was amazed by Zao Wou-ki
  • Great little museum. Had an amazing Monet exhibition Summer 2011 and the permanent collection of vintage cars is remarkable. Parking next door is easy and free, but eat before you go - the museum has only a small theatre-style bar with snacks. There is a cafe outside but obviously that's dependent on the weather!
