Fondation Pierre Gianadda

Fondation Pierre Gianadda

The Pierre Gianadda Foundation in Martigny was created by Léonard Gianadda on November 19, 1978, in memory of his brother Pierre Gianadda, who died in 1976 as the result of an accident. The museum, erected around the remains of a Gallo-Roman temple found in 1976, presents the main archaeological discoveries made in Martigny.

The Pierre Gianadda Foundation is one of the most visited museums in Switzerland and has had more than 8 million visitors since its inception. The foundation regularly presents important temporary exhibitions alongside its permanent exhibitions (Automobile Museum, Gallo-Roman Museum, Sculpture Park and the "Chagall Court"). In addition, the exhibition space regularly plays host to classical music concerts.
