Best thing about this collection was the space it was hung in. Possibly the worst collection of publicly owned art that we've seen. Most was pretentious and or lazy. Unless its raining and you cant think of anything else to do, avoid at all costs.More

This museum is apparently part of the KKL, a big complex which includes a concert hall. I visited only the museum. Unfortunately, I caught them as they were changing between exhibits. I found the art very interesting. Modern and challenging and fun. I was very...More

I visited this museum on my own, as it was free with my Swiss Rail Pass. The building is beautiful, both inside and out. The cantilevered extension on the front that hangs over the fountains is really something, as is the glass and steel interior....More

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
