We went on a rainy day, but not worth it unless you have already have a pass that covers admission. Very small exhibition space (don't let the size of the building from the outside fool you). A little confusing at the entrance as to whether to walk up stairs or take elevator - and to which floor. We enjoyed a... More

The art here is some of the finest in the world....you must lock up your items and I was scolded for have taken a picture of a sculpture, however, this place changed my perspective of human greatness and challenges me to be that much more. I'd recommend this place to all modern art fans...actually, make it a priority! You won't... More

Honestly I didn't go inside, but the outside is the place to be. Great hangout place with amazing energy. Right next to the tour boats stations. Do pass by and enjoy the weather.

was raining that morning so we headed to the museum. The one in Zurich is MUCH better, this one was average at best.

I guess that I am not a modern art fan, but I did enjoy the building itself...Swiss Rail pass gets free admission, so worth a few minutes of your time. If you enjoy modern art and the exhibits at the time, it would be great.

We had a 2 day ticket 32 SF each that allowed us into all the museums. This was a well laid out and children really enjoyed.

Great museum with nice art and wonderful architecture. Located centrally. Would not make a detour for it though.

The museum is next to the trainstation so I had some time to kill until my train left and decided to visit the museum. The people at the museum were very friendly and made you feel welcome (as there was not too many people visiting the museum when I was there), but the collection was just ok - nothing special....

The museum is just next to Lucerne bahnhof, so it's really easy to get to. It's in the neat-looking building next to it, but occupies only a small section of it on the 4th floor. I just didn't really like their selection of art. I believe it's a continually moving exhibition, so maybe I just caught them at a not... More

Unless your interest in art tends toward the highly contemporary and conceptual, there isn't anything here (or wasn't during our visit, at least). There is a decent restaurant in the very nice building next to the Bahnhof, but that was the highlight of our visit.
