  • For lovers of art, or simply for a discovery during a time of leave. This is a place that allows you to discover and take time away from the bustle of the city. Expos always carefully chosen, a Museum of old cars which we don't get tired and a course in the history of the region of Martigny that worth the detour. Don't forget to pass by the garden, which is really beautiful.

  • Passing through Martigny this is 'The' visit to perform. His exhibitions are always at the top. We can go there on a regular basis. The largest paint were exposed. His car Museum alone is worth the visit. when its architecture it really unique, and takes full advantage of the Roman ruins in the places. Weather its Park you will discover very rare sculptures. Whether in the region or passing, a visit is necessary. His exhibitions are envied by most major museums worldwide. His fame is more to do. Enjoy your visit

  • A building with modern architecture, where many forms of arts mix, with a magnificent sculpture garden!

  • 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!
