As it reflects the personal and exquisite taste of the collector, all the works are selected with care and displayed with logic. Compared to other institutions in Switzerland, i found they had the best Klees.

I liked the great collection of piccaso paintings as well as Cezanne, Monet, Matisse, Klee, Miro and many others. Looking at the paintings you learn about Angela Rosengart special personal relations with Piccaso. She photograph him while working and he painted her portrait. It is a most pleasant gallery with special atmosphere. It is a must-to-visit in Luzern!!!

The Rosengart's were personal friends of Piccasso. This is a small but lovely museum. Very interesting.

this was a great rainy morning option for us. enjoyed the collection...and our Swiss Pass gave us either free admission or a substantial discount (can't recall which). the museum staff were very kind to us and helpful as well, pointing out different aspects we might not have noticed.

By far, THE most impressive "SMALL" collection I've seen anywhere. Picasso VERY well represented, in most of his phases. Klee (not a fan myself-- but if you are...) Heaven More terrific works from Impressionist Masters that I expected Free with the Swiss Pass. Two blocks from the station. This, I think is a must. Even if for just an hour... More

The Picasso collection on the first level is spectacular, but I spent most of my time with the beautiful delicate Pal Klee works. There are 125 of his small fairy tale works in chronological order, with the final pieces from 1940 just before his death. Other wonderful works upstairs include Chagall & impressionists as well as a comprehensive photographic journal... More

The absolute best place to experience Picasso, as there is not only many of his works but also a photo series of him in different areas of his life during a given time period. Especially interesting to see him at work in his studio. Also features his later (and more disturbing) works, which is unique. Renoir, Matisse, and Cézanne make... More

I particularly enjoyed the collection of Picasso, but this museum has plenty of works by other talented artists. It is worth a visit if you are in Lucerne.

A first class museum. The Picasso collection is personal and intimate and easily viewed. The photgraphs of the artist at work over the years are a particularly unusual addition. Not sure about the Klees in the basement but a big contrast to the Picassos. Staff very helpful and a visit is an absolute must if you are in Lucerne
