The Rosengart Collection reviews
This art gallery saved the day for us! We were refused entry at two buildings in Lucerne with art or museum collections because our UK Covid pass certificate doesn’t come with a bar code. This is how.... more »
An outstanding collection of lesser know paintings of all the greats, and then some! 10 min walk from the center - and well worth the walk! more »
The museum has three floors: ground, first, and basement. We were there for the Picasso paintings on the ground floor which we enjoyed very much. They also had a collection of Paul Klee in the basement which were amazing in their variety. The first floor has a collection of impressionist paintings by Renoir, Cezanne, Chagall in addition to photos of Picasso in his studio. Unfortunately the AC was out on the day of our visit which made the whole museum very warm. Another downside was that no photography was allowed. Overall it was a very nice museum with friendly staff and great collections!
Fantastic collection of Picasso and Klee art. I learned things I did not know about these two fantastic artists just from the pieces on display here. Unique looks into both men’s artistic lives. Highly recommend everyone visit this museum while in town.
