The Maeght Foundation or Fondation Maeght (pronounced [mɑɡ]) is a museum of modern art on the Colline des Gardettes, a hill overlooking Saint-Paul de Vence in the southeast of France about 25 km (16 mi) from Nice.

The collection includes works by many important 20th-century artists including Jean Arp, Pierre Bonnard, Georges Braque, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Sam Francis, Alberto Giacometti, Wassily Kandinsky, Ellsworth Kelly, Fernand Léger, Anne Madden and Joan Miró among others.

What a place! You think you just go to a normal museum. Your expectations are "this" high. And this is what happens: in less than 3 minutes after entering you are confronted with a beautiful Miro! As a delicate "hors d'oeuvre". After that, you are taken in small steps through a history of modern beauty in miniature. I enjoyed every minute in there! Thank you, Fondation Maeght!

A place out of time and space. A place by itself, aerial case for all the art treasures it hosts. And for hooked people like me, the place to go and just sip a coffee next to Calder, Giacometti and Chillida...

L'art se mérite et le budget pour une famille de 6 est conséquent. Au début de notre visite la fondation était déserte, un vrai bonheur! Le cadre et l'architecture de la fondation n'ont laissé personne indifférent et les oeuvres permanentes ou temporaires ont raisonné différemment d'un enfant à l'autre.Un moment hors du temps, fait d'échange et de partage. L'arrivée de groupes bruyants et disparates précipita notre départ, mais nous y retourneront probablement.

Architecture remarquable et très bien intégrée au parc et ses oeuvres. A l'intérieur, les oeuvres très bien éclairées, peuvent être regardées aisément par tout le monde, individuellement et en groupe.

S'il y a un lieu à ne pas manquer sur la Côte d'Azur, c'est bien la Fondation Maeght. Fait partie des bonnes adresses recommandées par la Villa Le Printemps de Saint-Laurent-du-Var. à consommer sans modération !!

An amazing place which would merit five stars if they didn't charge extra for the right to take photos. Incredible buildings in great condition that radiant calm. Lots of very good art by big names from the first half of the 20th century. Nice views towards the coast, now somewhat obscured by tree growth.

A very VERY special place to spend and hour or 2. Calming, inspirational and idyllic. A must go! Epic.

Fantastic settings and panoramic views. Small museum with mainly Miro sculptures in the open air. Interesting modern architecture.

I thought the structure/ building needed attention. The permanent show doesn t show much logic. Yet nice vibrations from the place where you can almost feel the artists creativity.

Highly overrated, very disappointing experience. After exiting the bus from Nice one must hike over 1/2 mile all UPHILL in the STREET dodging cars, no sidewalk!!! There are also no signs indicating how far the entrance is, and no shuttle from the bus stop, NOTHING. The entrance fee is also too high for such a small museum, 15 euros. Even the Picasso Museum in Antibes only charges 6 euros and the artwork and sculpture at the Maeght is nowhere near as interesting. The Maeght staff, especially at the entrance and in the gift shop was rude and unhelpful... I would definitely skip this place and spend the time instead at the beautiful nearby town of St Paul de Vence, where there is much very nice art and sculpture, which can be seen for free!
