    Always very well presented and enjoyable to visit with the kids and end up in the Park. The car show has always charm.

    I have visited already several times the Gianadda Foundation at various exhibitions. The architecture of the building is very original and permanent exhibitions worth to them only. The park with rare species (or not) of trees and art works massive is a marvel! (I particularly like the Chagall mosaic fountain) The expo this year Cézanne I like less because especially its 1st works and lifes... but it takes for everyone... I will come back with a lot of fun and enthusiasm!

    The Gianadda Foundation is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful boxes of the world for an exhibition. The exhibition Cézanne has the merit to cover the entire work of the artist. A path led Cézanne to the apotheosis that everyone knows but this exhibition reminds us of the first or even laborious austere years of the artist. Remember, after the expo, through the garden, a green setting that presents a wonderful exhibit of sculptures that will go through the second half of the 20th century!

  • We went to the Monet exposition and we love it
  • Excellent art exhibition , outdoor sculpture parc, da Vinci models
  • Beautiful architecture, great art collection
  • Excellent garden, unforgettable exhibits
  • 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.
