  • A short walk from the center of town. A small and specialized museum. Contains original scores, personal stories of the family and even critical material. A peek into both their musical and personal lives.
  • Walking from the train station the view of the lake and the surrounding nature continually got more spectacular. Arriving at the museum I saw the mountains, swans in the lake and a beautiful manor house. The environment seemed to scream inspiration. The museum is small but well kept and not too crowded. Seeing letters and scores in the composer's hand was fascinating. Some of the paintings and the death mask added a little camp to the day. Worth a visit and a lovely place to picnic or grab a coffee.
  • The staff was helpful and friendly. It was interesting to learn more about one of my favorite composers.
  • The Museum has very less to offer, actually there are no interesting artifacts, just a few paintings and hand written scrolls. My advice is that skip the museum itself, its just a waste of money. Instead just walk down towards the lake, it has some amazing views!!
  • Solid museum for lovers of Wagner. Quaint house, with some of his personal items, that overlooks a peaceful view of the lake. It’s about a 30 minute walk from the train station, through some quiet areas and parks. Good way to get away from the crowds and see some Of the beautiful vistas that Luzern has to offer.
