Scholars, collectors, lovers of art and the local territory, the brothers Robert and Louis Berton, convinced that culture is a common good, donated their house, where the family used to spend their holidays, to the town of La Thuile, to make a museum of it.
The eclectic collection mainly consists of traditional Aosta Valley artefacts, in particular masks, furniture, prints of avant-garde painters, drawings and illustrations of traditional architecture, and an extensive library.
Visitors will find a domestic environment characterized by its original furniture, where time has stood still between the 1970s and 1990s, and can enjoy the artistic wealth on display thanks to modern equipment that allow them to explore the themes in greater focus.
