If you are interested in modern art, especially Picasso, this is a must see. The collection is in the family of one of the worlds great art dealers, and he was a big promoter of Picasso and other modern artists. It is currently owned by Mr. Rosengart's daughter, and it is interesting to see her show up in photos with... More

I didn't know about this gallery until I arrived in the city. How lucky to find this amazing collection of Picassos and Klees. Hundreds of works on paper, a must see if you are interested in either of these artists. No crowds, easy to get close to each work to examine techniques and easy to follow artistic development over time.

Fairly expensive, but so are most things in Switzerland. :) No bags are allowed in, but there are fee lockers just after the ticket booth. You can also borrow a guide in English, which has information about the collection´s original owners, their relationship with Picasso and about the art on display. I noticed some reviews mention spending about half a... More

An amazing collection from what was once a private gallery to what is now a former bank building. Finally a good use of former "bank" buildings.

This generous lady has donated her impressive art collection for the public to see and it is housed in a beautiful old building which used to be a branch of the Swiss National Bank close to the centre of Luzern. Her story can be seen on a DVD playing on an upper floor of the building and is worth the... More

Mosly Picasso with some Klee and Chagall paintings .Not too large but just perfect for half a day . It has an interesting video of the origins of the collection.

I well remember my job-duties some 50+ years ago, walking as a young banking apprentice from my small nearby bank to the hallowed halls of the Swiss National Bank, carrying immense amounts of cash in the pockets of my jacket. Now this serene banking structure has morphed into a very interesting and alive cultural venue, exhibiting the artistic collection of... More

This is one of the most lovable small museums I've seen in my life: Mrs Rosengart has donated a wonderful collection of paintings and drawings of Klee and of Picasso and some impressionists to this foundation in the classical building of the former Swiss National Bank, Lucerne Branch. It is like looking at pictures in your home ....

quiet gallery with huge number of Picasso and Paul Klee paintings and sketches. DO watch the subtitled film and how the foundation Rosengart came into being and why the family Rosengart had such a huge number of paintings. Photographs by Duncan of Picasso at work and at play are also really interesting.
