Plan Your Visit

The Venet Foundation is currently open for the 2024 Summer Season.

Our 2024 season runs from June 13 to September 28. We are open during select days during this period. Our online reservation system is now open and you may book your visit below.

Guided Visits

Guided visits offer a tour of the sculpture parks, and the seasonal exhibitions in the gallery and factory spaces, highlighting not only the progression of Venet’s work across his career but also in the context of Conceptual and Minimal art. Visiting these spaces is to see and understand the particular history of Bernar Venet and his wife Diane, as well as the ties of friendship created through acquisitions from their artist friends since the 1960s that form the basis of the permanent collection.

We are only open for guided visits (approx. 25 visitors per group), led by members of our team. We cannot allow access outside of the guided tours, as certain parts of the property remain private spaces for the Venet family.

Advanced online reservations are mandatory. We do not sell tickets on site.

Visits last 1.5-2 hours and take place on our site on the Chemin du Moulin des Serres, 83490 Le Muy, France.

Parking for private cars at 150 Chemin du Moulin des Serres. Parking for buses will be at a different location on the same road. You will receive detailed parking instructions once your reservation is confirmed.

Planning your visit

We are open from approximately mid-June until the end of September each year. You can arrange your guided visit on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and on certain Saturdays during this period. We also offer some special summer sunset visits throughout the season.

All reservations must be made through the calendar on this website. We do not sell tickets over the phone or on site. Any contact numbers listed online are not valid.

We are closed on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays.

All ticket sales are final and non-reimbursable.

Payment in only accepted U.S. Dollars because the Venet Foundation is a non-profit organization based in the United States. All funds generated from ticket sales cover a portion of our operating costs.

As we are a young foundation with only a small, seasonal staff, we are currently unable to offer reduced admission for retirees, members of the press, or groups.

Visitor Guidelines

Please arrive no more than 30 minutes before your tour begins.

Please arrive on time. The group visit will start on time, and late arrivals cannot be accommodated into the group.

We offer dedicated visits with French-speaking guides, and other times with English-speaking guides. Please reserve whichever is most appropriate for you and your group.

Please help us preserve the artworks on site by refraining from touching them.

Pets are not allowed on the property.

This is a long visit with a lot of gentle walking; please wear appropriate footwear.

Accessibility

The majority of the visit is step-free, though one artwork offers both above and below ground views, the latter of which is only accessible via a staircase.

There are a small number of steps to access some toilets and the onsite bookshop.
