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...

It's an art museum, most of it comprising of Picasso's work. Save at least 3-4 hours if you want to visit all the artist's galleries thoroughly. You get a free entry on a swiss travel pass.

Some wonderful paintings by Picasso, Chagall and Klee, if he is your cup of tea all donated by Angela Rosengart. I love this place. The only negative is the grumpy ladies on reception. I hope they are volunteers and not being paid for their surliness. Don't let them spoil your visit!

Even though the weather was beautiful this morning after a rainy weekend, I was looking forward to going to this museum. I enjoyed the art work and the personal connections to the museum owners. This museum reminds me of the Menil Collection in my hometown, Houston, so I'm glad I decided to go today!
