We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to the Rosengart Collection, conveniently located near the Lucerne train station. Recommend starting with the informative, well-produced video on the 3rd floor (25-30 minutes), which describes the Rosengarts' love of modern painting and friendship with Picasso. There are also charming photos of Picasso with his family on the the 3rd floor. The ground floor... More

As an fan of the impressionists and especially Picasso, I loved this museum. Interesting mostly later works by Picasso, not the stuff you usually see. Also a great Paul Klee collection. The best part are the pieces that relate directly to the Rosengarts, they were friends with Picasso for many years and so displayed are many portraits he painted of... More

Especially for Picasso and Klee fans, this is quite simply one of the great museums. Close to Luzern train station, the Rosengart collection is exhibited on three floors of a 1920s building revamped by the well-known Swiss architects, Diener and Diener. Start on the top floor with the film of an extended interview with Angela Rosengart, the daughter of the... More

For those of us fortunate enough to find ourselves in this beautiful Swiss city I strongly recommend a visit to this beautiful Museum, not the largest in the world but the works of art are truly worth the visit. What I found were paintings by artists, that I had not seen before, I was delighted with my finds

I had a few hours before my train and saw reviews for the museum, so I thought I'd give it a try. It was lovely if you enjoy art and some history.

The Rosengart collection is fantastic, particularly as we had no idea that it existed and literally stumbled across it while exploring Lucerne. There are quite a lot of beautiful works by Picasso on display - he was a friend of the family so it includes a series of portraits of Angela Rosengart, as well as some wonderful portraits of his...

Suchg a shame that so few tourists visit this wonderful Gallery. What was once a bank is now a treasure trove of art works. The collection of the Rosengart Family in Luzern reflects the work of two generations of art dealing, and the personal contacts with the artists. This is visit that should nor be missed.

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
