We bought “Skip the Line” tickets on TripAdvisor. We arrived with our electronic tickets and were told we’d have to wait in line at the ticket window to exchange our electronic tickets for paper tickets. The line was long and no one was respecting distancing measures. (People were wearing masks.) Why does the Fondation Maeght website provide a link to TripAdvisor in order to buy no-wait tickets when you have to wait in line no matter what?

Dear visitor, we are sorry you did not have a good experience at the Foundation. There is usually no line to get into the Foundation but attendance in the past couple weeks has been surprisingly high. We have taken good note of your comment and have since created a separate line for Trip Advisor ticket holders and Société des Amis members. We have also increased enforcement of sanitary measures to keep visitors and staff safe and healthy. We hope that except for the line at the entrance, you have enjoyed your visit at the Foundation and will come back soon.

This is a silly option, as buying the tickets here online did not help us avoid any queue at all. We were still required to go to the ticket office, show our phone with the online tickets and have one printed to show at the door of the museum. So no point at all. There was no queue At the ticket office anyway, though. Forget this option, just go!

Dear visitor, thank you for your comment. There is indeed usually no line at the entrance so online bookings are not really necessary. It is nonetheless a appreciated feature by our visitors who like to plan ahead their visit. We hope you have appreciated your visit regardless of this small issue.

It’s a collection worth a detour if you are nearby St Paul and are interested in art. The present temporary exhibition was not my favorite (Jacques Monory) but the permanent collection it’s very nice, especially the sculptures, the Giacometti and the very peaceful garden.

Fond memories brought me to revisit. It is even better than I remembered. The combination of art, sculpture, movement, water, dappled shade and the Provence sun are a true delight.

If you’re a fan of mid century architecture, then the building alone is worth the visit. The grounds and landscaping are also wonderful. There is so much attention to detail, even the doorhandles, exterior lights and garden café furniture were designed by Alberto Giacometti and his brother. There are some wonderful murals and artworks permanently built into the space, and the collection in the garden is a fabulous welcome. As you’d expect, the 20 century art inside is amazing. The permanent collection is wonderful, and when we visited, the temporary exhibition in that season was Juan Miro, it was beautifully curated and packed to the gills. The natural light flood in the gallery shows all the exhibits off beautifully. There is a lovely café in the grounds where we had lunch, but you’re a short stroll from Saint Paul de Vence, where you can also eat well and is a lovely ‘must see’ town in the area. Parking is either in the grounds, and an overspill carpark on the left as you drive up the hill from the village towards the gallery. Worth parking there if you intend to visit both.
