One of the best Picasso collections I have seen. Visitors are given a written explanation of the works and history but it doesn't always match up to the order of the paintings. Would much prefer to see the explanations by the paintings. Also a Klee exhibition though I am not a fan. A good variety of his work though.

The museum was free with the Swiss Pass but would be worth the 18CHF. 1 1/2 floors devoted to Picasso, about 50 pieces, all in chronological order. A great fee guide talks about him and almost all of the pieces. Another floor devoted completely to Klee, a great Swiss artist. These 125 pieces are also chronological and have a detailed... More

Picasso is the main draw here, and you'll certainly see plenty of him! Some of the other names on their list really only have 1 or 2 paintings (Monet/Seurat) but still a fantastic gallery that that you don't really expect in a city the size of Lucerne.

We stumbled upon this little museum in Lucerne via Rick Steve's recommendation. We were totally delighted with it. This place is a jewel! The collection of forty-some Picasso's displayed in order of creation was amazing. I'd always appreciated the great master's work, but never been moved by it. Seeing his development and these wonderful pieces, I felt, for the first... More

Nice collection of Klee artwork - a little overwhelming in amount of Klee so I just focused on the ones that jumped out at me and caught my eye. I liked the photos of picasso working in his studio. I liked the Chagall art. The museum could use a little coffee machine and table to sit and have a break,... More

As it reflects the personal and exquisite taste of the collector, all the works are selected with care and displayed with logic. Compared to other institutions in Switzerland, i found they had the best Klees.

I liked the great collection of piccaso paintings as well as Cezanne, Monet, Matisse, Klee, Miro and many others. Looking at the paintings you learn about Angela Rosengart special personal relations with Piccaso. She photograph him while working and he painted her portrait. It is a most pleasant gallery with special atmosphere. It is a must-to-visit in Luzern!!!
