Paintings were arranged in a very interesting way to allow vistors to see how artists like Picasso, Paul K etc had evolved in their painting techniques. English handout can be obtained at the front desk, will propose visiting the 1st floor, then the video on lvl 2, followed by the various rooms on the same lvl and finally the basement.... More

So glad we stopped here on our trip. This is a wonderful collection of early 20th Century art (Picasso, Klee, Chagall, and others). What makes it amazing is that it was all collected by one lady (and her father) who knew all the artists personally. One entire floor is dedicated to Picasso and laid out chronologically so you really get... More

On the last day of my visit in Lucern I had the chance to see the Rosengart Museum, a place where Art meets Class ... Mrs Rosengart, the soul of the Museum and Picasso's model, donated all the paintings she owns from the artist to this amazing museum.

This museum has a wonderful collection of art and is definitely worth spending a morning or afternoon if you enjoy modern art. It is the perfect size that you can take an hour or two and walk through without getting tired. They also provide guides in many languages.

We wanted to to see the Picaso's paintings. It was really great to find one individual has collected and put on display so many paintings of not only Picasso but so many other great masters. Thanks for the efforts undertaken.

I had no idea that this gem existed in in Lucerne and I spent three wonderful hours here. The Picassos and Klees are magnificent, as are the other Impressionist and post Impressionist works,and it is obvious that each picture was collected with love. Since this is a private collection the pieces aren't well known, which made the visit even more... More

FAB collection - love that we could take photos, love the taped interview, love the progression of Picasso works - from early sketches and studies to huge and wild and exciting later works.

I had no idea that in small Lucerne I can find so great pieces of art. This is place where you can easily observe artistic journey of great artists. Even if you are not art historian, their art story will be clearly visible for you. I thought I know picasso, but some of the works were completely new for me... More
