You’ll find this modern art museum just outside the village of St-Paul-de-Vence, and it’s well worth seeking out. The collection once belonged to Aime and Marguerite Maegt, art dealers from Cannes. Many of the exhibits are outdoors, so best to visit on a dry day. we particularly liked the courtyard dominated by Giacometti’s slender bronze walking figures; also, don’t miss Miro’s l’Oiseau Lunaire. Another highlight, this time inside, is La Vie, by Chagall. After your visit, head up to St. Paul and visit his grave, in the small cemetery just outside this hill-top town.

Was all Miro and Giacometti
Don’t expect to find impressionists or Picasso
Beautiful collection and museum

Was disappointed that the museum was 99% dedicated to the work of a single artist. However, it’s a nice place with pretty grounds.

We visited Foundation Maeght on the recommendation of a friend. We travelled with the bus from Nice to St. Paul de Vence which is an old town on top of a hill, very touristic even during October but is a must. Stunning views from the walls - not easy to walk, small high-up walking strip on the inside of the wall with no protection from falling. So, only for those that are brave, young enough and fit... But the view is fantastic. The town is full of all sorts of art- and giftshops. We were done with this visit within 2 hrs and walked to the Fondation Maeght which is on another hill about 2 km away from St. Paul.
The foundation exhibits the most complete Miro collection - paintings and sculptures that we have seen in an environment unseen before. High pines, olive trees, stone walls surround the magnificent buildings that host the paintings of Miro, Chagall, the sculptures of Miro and Giaccometti. Not many people were with us, so we had exclusive views and could take photos. The place has a unique atmosphere, magic and beautiful. We enjoyed the place for 3 hrs and took the bus down to Nice, Place Phoenix. We are very happy we did this tour. It is a must for people that love art, beautiful landscape and a peaceful environment.

Great Foundation specially as we admire Miro’s work. The amount of art displayed in and out were just amazing. The building where his art is displayed is well distributed, giving us a good flowing sensation.
Great space to visit right next to a beautiful medieval town.
