I love art and usually make it a point to visit any museum that houses impressionistic art. This was well worth a visit. I especially enjoyed the photos of Picasso. Would highly recommend!

This collection of art work is enhanced by showing a number of works by Picasso. Picasso had known the family who owned the building and this relationship is explored. There are a number of photographs showing the artist at work and play. Purchase a Lucerne...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. I am not a big Picasso fan, but I appreciated the breadth and depth of his work shown here and I especially loved all of the intimate photographs of him with his friends, working, vacationing, etc. These photos truly...More

We visited the Rosengart exhibition with the impression of being blown away by Picasso's artwork, and whilst it was stunning the thing that really took us was the great set of photographs on display of Picasso taken by David Douglas Duncan which showed the great...More

Not major pieces but incidental work, not really intended for publication or showing. Photos of Picasso at work perhaps the most interesting part.

This is a private foundation established by Angela Rosengrat, an art dealer to house her private collection. It is primarily Picasso and Klee. There is a student and senior discount

Right in the centre of Lucerne, the Rosengart is a wonderful museum, not too big but sheer quality. The people there are even better: forgot an item there and it was sent to me to the UK. Many thanks!

We visited the Rosengart as part of our city museum pass. I'm no art expert, but this place was pretty impressive with all the Picassos and other names from that era. It was very quiet while we were there (Sunday afternoon).
