  • Great the background of the Psnoramas of 1871 can now be studied animatedly even for classes. Interesting for insights into the past

  • Very surprised when discovering this immense painting on 360 degrees. The level of detail is impressive. I was able to have a comment in French, which allowed me to discover some details of the painting. This allowed me to know also an unknown passage of the history of the French army. Possible entrance with the Luzern museum pass.

  • Impressive and well-restored work of art on a large scale. Nice building with several activities. iPad with headphones guides through large parts of the painting and the story, which is pictured. Based on real incident.

  • The panorama itself is stunning! The 3D props in the foreground really blend in. And the audio play is done very well. It runs in different languages - German, English, Italian etc. Still, other than admiring the panorama, there's not much else to do. As such, I think the entrance fee is a bit steep for what you get, compared to other museums! Worth a visit, especially if you're private about history or if you haven't seen a huge panorama yet.
  • It is a unique experience seeing a real 360 degree painting all across full hall round.. I have never seen such a huge painting and it all looks natural and real. It's a mixture of creative art and painting as real life objects are planted in icy environment to give feeling of real war victims. The panoramic view of the painting makes it unique. Don't forget to take head phones if you are not local, you can understand the whole history much better to add value to your visit. The restaurant downstairs serve nice brownies and tea.
  • Very nice view if you walk alone with the lake to this museum. Famous Chocolate factory inside with cheapest price compare with the most store on the street.
  • Haven't seen any like it before. Really impressive painting and story about the Franco Prussen war. Must see in Lucerne.
  • Shows the interment of a French army in Switzerland after their defeat in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-1871. Another object lesson in not fighting, and a great example of a late 19th century art form, the panorama.
