Storyboards and films at the Musée et Chiens du St-Bernard praise the lifesaving work of a breed of dog that has come to symbolize the Alpine zone straddling Switzerland and Italy. Eight female St. Bernard dogs live year-round at the museum, which is in a restored arsenal adjacent to Martigny's Roman amphitheater. Visitors may watch the dogs in their grassy outdoor enclosure from both inside the museum and the park outside, and occasionally a handler will bring one of
them out to meet and greet. Cuddly toy St. Bernards are sold in the museum shop. Le Collier d'Or (Gold Collar), the museum's terraced café, stays open for at least an hour after the museum itself closes.
