Owner description: The private collection of Lucerne art dealer Angela Rosengart is open to the public since spring 2002. Over 200 important paintings and drawings by more than twenty world famous 19th and 20th century masters (Cezanne, Monet, Matisse, Picasso, Klee, Miro and many others) are on display in a neo-classical building specially remodelled for this purpose. Near the railway station.

Must qualify by saying I do not love Picasso's work. After visiting this once personal collection, I have seen some pieces of his work that I can now say I truly appreciate and enjoyed. A little pricey, 18 swiss Francs about 20 USD to get in but we showed up at an hour before closing (4pm) and they gave us a 3 franc discount. Even still, I think it was worth the fee as the way they framed the art, it allows you to see the entire canvas, wood, paper etc. The building itself is also fun to explore and they have a video that tells some of the history running in a great room upstairs. Truly unique and worth a visit.

The collection is just fabulous. I just love the spectrum of art that is in this private collection and when you hear about the connection the family Rosengart had to the painters it's takes you back in time and kind of makes you part of that history. I especially love the Paul Klee collection.

The Rosengarts are art dealers who had a personal relationship with Picasso and other artists of the period. The museum has a fine collection of his works, and for a very minimal entrance fee.

This is an accessible and educative (in a very enjoyable way) collection - there was Angela Rosengart herself on the Sunday morning we went. We actually started in the basement with two rooms of mainly early Paul Klee which was a great aperitif giving a strong pointer to where the painter was going in terms of his work. Then up to the top - there is a lift - to see the rooms of photographs and portraits which gave a strong flavour of the painter's life mainly in the 60's. The ground floor has most of the work plus a few other Impressionists and Cubists.
Great exhibition - no tea room but all the works are there as postcards. If we had stayed longer in :Lucerne we would have gone back

This museum known as the Picasso Museum among the locals has a fairly nice collection of his works. We recommend the twenty minute DVD about the Rosengarts and their collection. Visiting this museum gives you a better understanding of how prolific and unique Picasso was as an artist. The museum is very centrally located, a few steps from the promenade and the Concert Hall and stays open till 6 pm which makes it possible for visitors to do their sightseeing tours earlier in the day.
