Opening to the public

The Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation offers tours to members of the public by appointment only.

These guided tours take visitors on a fascinating journey into Francis Bacon’s work, life and creative process, with a special focus on the period he lived and worked in Monaco and France. It is a truly unique and absorbing experience that provides intriguing detail and perspectives on every exhibit. The rooms are themed, allowing visitors to explore different aspects of Bacon’s life and art in this intimate place, with its enveloping atmosphere.

Visitors to the Foundation can discover around a hundred items dedicated to the British painter: paintings, graphic works, photographs, objects found in his various studios, letters and working documents. This hang also includes works by artists who knew Bacon or were influenced by his oeuvre. One room is entirely dedicated to his Parisian studio, where he worked for more than a decade.

Free guided tours last approximately one and a half hours and take groups of up to six people. They take place every Tuesday and on the first Saturday of each month.
