This museum has a lovely collection of various works by Picasso. Also photos of him creating his work. A few Impressionist pieces - Renoir, Cezanne and Suerat. The layout is very easy to navigate and you can get up close to the pieces, no roped off viewing sections.

Be sure to watch the video first - located on the second floor in a separate room. It talks about where the collection originated, how it was designed and the background of many of the items. Even if you are not a Picasso fan, you should see this exhibit and hear the story. It is extraordinary

We loved this museum! I would go back again and highly recommend it to all. The Picasso Collection is divine ! The Marc Chagall room just made me happy...I had to go back in a 2nd time! It's a beautiful facility, easy to access near the train station. The staff are so friendly and helpful ! Time well spent!

One of the highlights of our visit to Lucerne, admission is a little pricey but ultimately worth it once you experience the array of Picasso's works on display. Primarily organized by date, though in some rooms by medium as well, this collection contains many important works alongside numerous others, giving the viewer a breath and depth of Picasso that would...

just amazing, what Angela Rosengart managed to collect during her long and rich life, based on her fathers experience and the friendship with some of the greatest painters of last century. The museum, a private donation of Angela Rosengart, is located in the former seat of the Swiss National Bank -and the splendid building really provided the perfect location for... More

This is a private collection of one of Picasso's models. It is first rate and there is an English guide you can borrow for your personal use.

What a treasure to find this museum in Lucerne! The museum is very well planned with Picasso's works presented in chronological order, together with works by other cubist and surrealist artists. The self-guided tour is so informative and offered personal glimpses into each artist's life, and into the life of Angela Rosengart and her husband. My favorite piece happened to... More

This museum is a gem. The Rosengarts were early collectors and supporters of Picasso, and seeing these was a big thrill because some are quite distinctive from pieces you see in most major museums. The Paul Klee section is also good, and examples of other artists of classic modernism are on display.
