Segantini Museum resides in a medieval tower and it's out of the way from other attractions but still it's an interesting place to visit if you're into classical art. The museum is quite small with its highlight being a huge Life, Nature and Death triptych. You'll certainly remember it. Unfortunately they don't accept Swiss Museum Pass.

It is a small museum with just two exhibition rooms, but the paintings by Segantini embody the atmosphere of the Engadin for me. His use of color to show light and emotions is amazing. Shop has a nice selection of posters and cards. Recommend highly.

Im not a very artsy person. But the architecture of this museum is unbelievably beautiful. Worth a visit if you like to take photo with beautiful building. Parking is quite large. Can be reach by foot from St. Moritz center (not a flat terrain). The art work is great according to my artsy friend.

It is worth finding out about Segantini before visiting the Museum. A heart breaking tale, stateless man, who died young, but had his work exhibited all over Europe, and was granted Swiss nationality after his death in 1899! The Museum was built in 1908 as a memorial to him. Large allegorical canvasses with luminous Symbolism contect, as well as fine... More

Segantini painted regional scenes in the Engladin, some with a Christian theme and some secular. This museum presents his work in its regional context. The audio guide is well worth it. Allow about 1.5 to 2 hours.

Nice little collection of approximately 30 paintings. The balcony in front of the entrance offers one of the nicest views in St. Moritz. Museum is about 10min walk from St. Moritz center. 10 CHF entrance fee seems a little expensive.

Nice to visit. The entrance fee is however expensive. The outside view - which is free - is worthwile seeing.

We recently visited the Segantini Museum and enjoyed learning more about this talented 19th Century artist who produced a small but strikingly beautiful body of work. An excellent audiotape provided helpful background on his dramatic life's story and his sympathetic approach to depicting the rhythms of rural life. The museum is housed in a fascinating structure and is well worth... More
