I like private collections because they're often a wide brush stroke of the times. Here, however, the collectors focused on collecting all of the Picasso, and Klees they could find. I'm a fan but not a groupie so felt a little saturated.

Great collection. Many works of Picasso and Klee among others. It is a pity that no photography is allowed. Anyway it is worth your visit.

centrally located, well laid out, but really not the greatest collection of paintings, and heavily biased to Picasso. Lucerne does not seem to be into visual art, and I guess surrounded by such visuak beauty hard to compete. I found sitting at lake edge watching the everchanging clouds and light on the mountains to be fabulous, and when I got... More

OK, so it's not the worst thing in the world to go to this museum. Frankly, without it Lucerne, a pretty small city, would have little in the way of culture. Apparently, this museum comprises a collection of the Rosengart family and also the Picasso Museum collection, both of which were put together several years ago. (I mention this because... More

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
