  • 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!

  • A surprise world-class museum complex in a small Swiss city. The vintage car museum is the largest in Switzerland. The rotating exhibitions are superb. The sculpture garden is refreshing.
  • We visited there for the Cezanne exhibit which was wonderful. The paintings were exhibited in the basement level with the upper level housing some Roman pieces unearthed in the area. When you go there, don't miss visiting the gardens which are filled with huge pieces along the walking path. The garden walk was as enjoyable as the inside area.
  • Extremely interesting place to wonder between art and Romans civilisation in Europe. Food was good and reasonably priced.
  • A really cool art museum and garden full of statues! 😀
  • Good exhibition of art great for a wet day out
