The Modern Art Museum is a beautifully situated structure on the lake. The gallery spaces are clean and attractive. Check in advance to see what they have on display, when we went the selection of artists could have been stronger-but looking at the schedule, they do present very fine modern art.

Went there after the Rosengart Collection, hence, the bar was high. It is located on the 4th floor of the KKL (in front of the train Station). The staff is above average, very helpful, kids-friendly - a big atelier for kids available to paint and to tinker. On the other Hand, art works average, some video installations. CHF15 entry fee...

This is in the large modern building that now looks over the ferry piers. It's an odd and very small collection of medieval Swiss paintings, some modern art, and three experimental videos. Personally I saw absolutely nothing of value, and felt that the 15 franc admission was outrageous (obviously, I had to pay before seeing the art and realizing that... More

we were very disappointed with the art in this collection, unless you're really into your art then there's other attractions in Lucerne to spend your money on.

Located right by the Lake this museum offers exhibitions ,concerts as well as lectures. You can obtain a catalog with all they have to offer inside or at various tourist offices. I attended a very interesting lecture.

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.
