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

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.
