It's a very small museum, but well curated. Particularly worth a visit when there is an exhibition on. free entry to students.

Only offering a limited Bramantino exposition. We came for the Segantinis but were a bit disappointed.

The museum is currently hosting an exhibition which shows the development of Klee and Melotti. The presentation is excellent, and it brings out the humor of the two artists. A wonderful way to spend a hour or two in Lugano away from the touristy traffic.
