Pierre Gianadda Foundation

Martigny, Switzerland

The museum was founded in 1976 by Leonard Gianadda. The museum grounds were originally developed to be an apartment block but during the excavations, a Roman temple was found. After Leonard's brother Pierre died in a plane crash, the plans changed and he built the foundation.

The museum has three permanent exhibitions - a car museum of around fifty old vehicles (1897 to 1939). A sculpture park in the gardens with the remains of Gallo-Roman thermal baths on display and a Gallo-Roman exhibition.

As well as other temporary exhibitions, the museum also hosts small concerts.
