An amazing established museum, foundation and exhibition. Art is the life round there...everywhere round the grounds. Wonderful art is all shapes and sizes and spheres of life...all by exceptional artists. What a display...Arroya...Chagall...and more and more. Just go!

Some excellent pieces here, with a great sense of humour in evidence. The setting is exceptional and while the surrounding area is largely obscured by pines (understandable to give a sense of seclusion), you still get a sense of being part of the landscape due...More

This was somewhat a disappointment. The permanent collection is weak and leaning to heavily on Miro, the friendship between architect and artist surely explains it. Much unused space in the order part of the building. The café fest very sleepy. And, the big temporary exhibition...More

This was the most disappointing of all the museums & galleries that we have visited on this 5 week trip. Firstly the walk from the bus stop is a serious hike uphill. Then the admission price at E15 is tops + E5 to take photos...More

The museum is on a hill above Saint Paul de Vence in an oak forest. The statues and artwork outside are interesting. The traveling exhibit of Eduardo Arroyo was interesting. Some of the captions on the paintings were in English which was helpful. We aren't...More

This is a do not miss if you are in St Paul, it is a must see for the permanent garden collection alone, and the sculptures are spectacular. There is an exhibition of Eduardo Arroya there until December 2018 which is by worth while.

Intelligently placed sculptures in landscaped gardens together with interesting pictures in a purpose designed building. A classic example of a holistic design.

Includes paintings and statuary by many famous artits such as Miro and Chigall. Some of the works are huge. Much of it goes over the heads of visitors, including myself, but it was a learning experience.

A short walk from the walls of St. Paul de Vence. It's up on a hill. Entry is 15 euros and they charge an extra 5 euros if you plan to take photographs. The building is amazing. Built by Catalan architect Sert, keeping the natural...More

Carol, I have been to the Fondation Maeght 2 times. The first time I walked from la Colombe d'Or restaurant to the Museum. It is an uphill climb of about 1 km. The 2nd time, I did it by car, and I just followed the signs.
