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

A lovely, focused collection. If you go make sure to watch the video of the donor/founder of this collection. It makes the experience incredibly personal. I am not an avid Picasso admirer, but it was worth the visit. I learned a great deal about him, his art, and the art of his time. And of course about the Rosengarts!

This is an incredible museum devoted primarily to Picasso and Paul Klee, but also includes works by Monet, Manet, Modigliani, Cezanne, Pizarro and others. It is in an beautiful old bank building impeccably restored by Angela Rosengart. She and her father were friends with Picasso and bought many of his paintings. She is now in her 80's and according tho... More

Borrowed bicycles and headed off to this fabulous modern collection. Most impressive Picassos we had seen anywhere and the family history was a compelling story to learn about

High concentration on Picasso and Paul Klee, yet there were important pieces of work by an array of masters. A must see!
