Fondation Pierre Gianadda Reviews
Very nice Rodin-Giacometti exhibition at the Gianadda Foundation. Magnificent scultures and description of movements. Also located 10 minutes away, we loved to sleep at the mARTigny boutique hotel (... more »
We visit the Fondation Pierre Gianadda several times a year whenever they have an exhibition we want to see. The most recent visit was for the current exhibition Rodin-Giacometti. The first thing for ... more »
Good museum with an interesting history. Different expositions, nice garden. Really friendly people. Recommended to visit! The only strange point was that some expositions are not translated to other languages except French.
Terrible. For an Art foundation with this reputation, they could at least invest in renovating the space. The curating for Rodin & Giacometti is absolutely awful. How someone could ruin two of the most fantastic sculptors works is beyond me. The space is stuck in the 70's, the staff was odious, and the entrance fee is very expensive. On top of that, you only get a 2.- reduction for being a senior... On that same evening, a concert was going to take place, so all the chairs for it were left all around the exhibition... How can you do that? It is far from everything, show at least a bit of appreciation for people who travel for hours to come and see a show. I know I will not be going back, absolutely wasn't worth it.
