This foundation dedicated to the modern and contemporary art is a few minutes walk away from St Paul de Vence's village entrance. The building and the gardens filled with Giacometti and Calder (among many others) sculptures are worth the visit. It also houses temporary exhibits. Their interest depends on your taste and on the artists involved. The best thing to do is to see the exhibition program on the foundation official website.

Entrance costs 15€ per adult (in 2015) which isn't cheap. It is free for children under 10.
