Can't believe that I had never heard of this place before. If you love Picasso then you will really enjoy this collection. There are also some works by Klee, Monet, Kadinsky, Miro and others. Nice collection, quite near train station, worth an hour visit.

It started to rain during our time in Lucerne, so it was the perfect opportunity to get indoors and enjoy Picasso. Ask for the student discount, If I remember correctly we paid half admission using that when we showed our student ID. There is so much Picasso in here, it's fantastic. It's also unbelievable. We loved some of his pieces,... More

I was very surprised with the amount of artwork from Picasso available at the museum. It is a must see. Pablo Picasso had an interesting view and his paintings hide many interesting things I challenge you to find.

One of the finest private art collections we have visited. Picasso and Klee are featured. Don't miss watching the video done by the museums founder detailing the family's relationship with Picasso. Architecturally interesting building. Three floors. Wheelchair accessible. Friendly, helpful staff.printed materials in English give you insights to many of the paintings. An easy walk from most downtown hotels.

This is an amazing collection and Mrs. Rosengart is an incredible woman! Take your time with no one in your way to truly admire and study a remarkable collection. I even met Mrs. Rosengart in person right near the beautiful portraits that Picasso did of her. I was in awe. Watch the video too. Skip the lions and boat rides... More

What started as a private collection (and developed into a very substantial private collection) was turned into this "museum". If you're a fan of modernist art, you will probably enjoy visiting. The attractive building gives nice space, and there are rarely any crowds at all. In addition to the drawings, paintings and 3D work, there is some interesting photography of... More

The Rosengart museum is a fabulous private collection of works by well known masters, presented in an acessible and approachable manner. At the counter they will give you a guide in english which is very helpful. The collection is extensive and very impressive, and the price is very reasonable. Dont miss this one.
