Small, but a well structured museum. Slightly over priced but a great inspiring collection. Good for a mental floss.

This was a hidden gem in St Moritz, so glad we went! The audio guide is excellent and many quite famous works are displayed in a beautiful setting.

Unrepresentative
Aug 2017
Segantini's great work was produced during his expressionist period. None of these works are in the Segantini Museum. The museum has only a small collections of his early landscapes which he could not sell or did not wish to sell.

This was a disappointment !!
Feb 2018 • Friends
A tiny museum with just a few paintings made by Segantini . a big portion of the building is allocated to cashier / selling copies etc. The price is really very high

I do not recommend visiting this museum !!

Fine artist, good museum
Feb 2018 • Family
If you have never heard of the artist Segantini, go take a look st some fine pictures depicting the area around St Moritz. He is known in art circles and is perhaps a forerunner of Van Gogh. Large canvasses show the local majestic mountains and the hard life and conditions before some Brits invented winter sports and the area became prosperous. Then the railway arrived and the rest is history. Do visit the museum!

Allows to Understand Aberrations in Modern Art
Sep 2017 • Friends
This museum is the shortest possible introduction into the aberrations to which modern art can lead. When starting to find a stile, Segantini had a good sense for human proportion and an interesting approach to how to structure paintings and light. One could argue that Segantinis personality was not overly clear from the paintings, but that could have changed. Then Sagantini seemed to have felt he needed to get the people he displayed in motion and also somehow be original. He seemed to not have studied much on how motion is made visible in other paintings, so most of his personages are quite stiff. Also, he seemed to have succumbed to the heroism
that was liked at the time, and to what could be referred to as patriotic painting. Also, Segantini seemed to have had the ambition to catch up with the modernism of the time. The results are brush strokes, proportions and depiction of objects of a lack of sense for proportions that is deplorable. Meier-Graefes criticism of Turner comes to mind without one having to agree with this criticism, namely that in modern art, because everything is possible, the lack of talent can also lead to recognition.

The architecture in particular of the top floor is as pompous as a confirmation of the sponsor not having much taste would require.

Amazing little gem to see!

This museum is a must and the life of this painter as remarkable as his paintings. it is a great place and you will enjoy the amazing paintings. If you are there go and see the place from the city center you can walk there in 5 min.

Wonderful collection
Aug 2017 • Family
Nothing to complain about the paintings in the collection - in particular about the three big ones done for the Swiss Pavillion at the Expo 1900 (and then hosted in the Italian Pavillion). Paintings are really impressive!
But I think that credit cards should be accepted in a Museum in St. Moritz!
