While I liked the building this museum is housed in and it's beautiful location on the Lake, I thought the entrance could've been better identified. Entry is 15 CHF. On the day that I went, there were three or four different exhibitions going on. Mostly...More

We bought a 8 days Swiss travel pass that allows us free entry into the Museum. There were many modern art works on display. Of which some are mind boggling but some that tickles your thinking. On a whole a Museum quite different from the...More

This is a hit or miss spot. The setting on the lake is wonderful and the galleries themselves are spacious and well lit. However, they don’t display a permanent collection. So you can see whatever is being staged. If what on happens to be good,...More

I was very disappointed by the exhibition of so-called "modern art"! Various furniture with colours, paintings in black, various other objects were displayed. I went out of this museum with a feeling of sadness.More

I am sorry, if we didn't meet your expectations, but I also wonder if you were in another museum than the Art Museum of Lucerne. Actually, we have our annual closure since 8th January and before there were neither furniture nor black paintings exposed. Hope...More

we retreated into this museum on a rainy day. It was a bit of a challenge to find as the regular signage was obscured by a special event signage. Take the elevator up to the third floor and explore. I'm no art expert, but it...More

This was one of my fav places in Luzern. As I had a swisspass entry was free- although I would have paid anyway! There was something for everyone at this museum and I wish I could have visited again during my short trip.

I enjoyed viewing the art work as well as the building. By other Museum standards this is not a large venue and can be enjoyed during a short visit. With a Swiss Travel Pass entry is free.
