There is an abundant collection of Picassos here as well of Paul Klee. The impressionists and colour expressionists are also respresented. Worth a visit if you are in Lucerne and if you are fan of Picasso.

We stopped by this museum after returning from Mt Pilatus. It was free with our Swisspass. My husband is a Picasso fan and really enjoyed this stop. It has a large collection of Picasso sketches, paintings, and photographs of him. The tourist information advertised that they had other artists, but the bulk of the collection is Picasso. We went through... More

Nicely hung and worth a visit. Haven't seen so many from the Vallauris and Cannes period all together anywhere else.

We had some free time and got in to this museum free with the Swiss Pass - otherwise I'm not sure we would have found it worth the admission price. We did enjoy the video about Rosengart and his friendship with Picasso - we also enjoyed the Impressionist section and the black and white candid photos. The Picasso collection was... More

This is a small museum but worth going if you have a Swiss Pass which gives you free admission. A must see if you are a Picasso fan but also some Seurat, Renoir, Monet and Klee.

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.

There is so much to see in this fab gallery, but be sure to make time for Paul Klee's Little X...and be prepared to fall in love.
