  • See if you love big dogs a bit frustrating to see behind glass but with patience you can even pet them according to the schedule, we had the chance to see the puppies frolicking outside and it must be said that there is not a lot of people so we were able to ask questions to the staff that is friendly both to the Fund with the dogs the Museum to the floor is very interesting too bad fluff are not most similar I got really hard to leave the place, thank you for this moment

  • Place friendly, a bit expensive if they come just to see the dogs, the Museum above is very good, the restaurant is very good. Family or friends, if you want to discover the treasures of the city Octodurienne, the amphitheater is next, the Giannada Foundation not far away.

  • For children it is OK. Do not expect much, but love the kids to see dogs as

  • A great little museum-well worth the stop on your way through the mountains! I absolutely loved it, the small museum was very interesting even if it is all in French (they offer English translations in a pamphlet that you return to the main desk when finished), very informative. Also being able to see the dogs and pet them!! Totally makes this one of my favorite things in Switzerland!
  • We were a bit disappointed that there were no puppies at the centre when we visited. They had a big TV showing a low quality web cam image of a new litter of 9 puppies that will be at the centre from the end of September 2016. We got to meet some of the adult dogs which are impressive animals - at ~60-70kg, they are heavier than a typical adult woman. Upstairs there is a very thorough exhibition about the Grand St. Bernard pass. It treats every aspect of the history of the pass and the dogs. The layout is a bit confusing but there is no lack of information. Overall, it's a bit expensive (12SF) for what it is, but you are supporting the dogs.
  • Lots of dogs and puppies. A great place to stay if you are interested in large dogs, especially Saint Bernards. A small museum in the upper floor - mainly photographs. Make sure you ask for a leaflet with translation in your own language (exhibition is entirely made in French).
  • Excellent place to discover the region of Saint Bernard and the importance of the St. Bernard dogs that were the true rescuers of the mountains. More important you can access "Barryland" which apart from the museum you will be delighted to see and socialize with the "gentle giants" that occupy the place part of the year. It is a must!
  • As a tourist the place was fantastic! It was great meeting all the dogs and looking at the museum!
