Kunstmuseum Luzern bases its sense of itself from its acknowledged position, which has grown throughout its history, as a leading institution for the visual arts in Central Switzerland, as well as its location in the internationally respected architecture of Jean Nouvel's new Culture and Congress Centre (KKL). From these features it derives not only the tasks it faces, but also the quality require for its work and content. In the national museum landscape, Kunstmuseum Luzern has established itself above all with an internationally regarded exhibition programme focusing on contemporary art, comparable to similarly-sized institutions.

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.

I have seldom been moved as much by a museum as by this one. Most museums go out of their way to present their collections, cluttering up their walls with paintings or sculptures, but, thank God, this one makes a special point of showing as...More

I was looking forward to seeing this museum, but think it was a waste considering how beautiful Lucerne is and how much more there is to see in the town. It's in a really cool building but there's not much to see. The location is...More
