I happened to pass by this museum by chance, and decided to go in and check it out. I'm really glad I did. Great art collections. I learned a lot about Pablo Picasso in this place.

The Swiss have the best private museums, and this is one of them. All Picasso on the ground floor ; all Klee on the floor below ; a mixed bag of modern artists upstairs. Rosengart was a friend of Picasso and family and there are many private photographs and artworks/memorabilia from that relationship, providing a rare indulgence in the personal... More

This is a wonderful gem to visit for art lovers. No pictures allowed. I can understand the flash part but in this day and age of smart phones and selfie addicts, goo luck with... More

On second floor there was a variety of Manet, Matisse, Cezanne and a few others My favorite part was on the 3rd floor where some very personal photos of Picasso in... More

Great simple art show with a lot of simple, small Picasso's drawings. Being non spectacular this is maybe a place for specialists and connaisseurs (french!)

This museum was founded by the daughter of a well known art dealer who was a friend of Picasso. His daughter was featured in a number of Picasso's works and there is an interesting video where she discusses her meetings with Picasso. Ther are also works of Klee and other artists of the time on exhibit.

This museum was the highlight of our stay in Luzern. we took a tour with the "Kuratorin" of the museum and she told us all about the personal relationship of the Rosengart family to Picasso - he created several drawings of the formerly young daughter Angela Rosengarrt which you can look at and we actually met the now elderly but...
