Overview
More
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 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.

Amazing building and very contemporary. Excellent coffee shop but the art did not really appeal to me.
