  • Very nice Museum for lovers of Paul Klee, Picasso and other painters. A guide is available in several languages available. The Lady at the reception is very friendly. The entrance fee is reasonable (18 / adults)

  • Ventured into the museum to see an impressive collection of Picasso paintings and drawings. A selection by Klee was also I residence. Interesting collection of photographs seeing the artist at work. W...  more »
  • The collection is eclectic, interesting parts artistically speaking are those of Klee, some works of Matisses, the Nabis painters (Vuillard, Bonnard...). While Picasso, presented as the great friend of the Rosengart family is always equal to itself: it's the Picasso with everything and anything and it's supposed to be art that remains, whatever we think, in the history of art? The price of entry is high, Yes, Yes, we're certainly in Switzerland but for CHF 18, it should really be a fan of Picasso, otherwise, go somewhere else.

  • So many masterpieces under the same roof! If you like modern art, you really cannot miss it. It deserves at least 2 hours if you like to take your time and admire the artworks without rushing.
  • Great collection. A lot of picasso!
  • Medium sized collection with some impressive works and a very interesting history. An enjoyable visit and very worthwhile.
  • It costs$18 francs to enter. I didn't have enough money or time to make it worthwhile. Although it was less than one hour to closing they would make no allowance for cost which is sometimes done at other museums.
  • Ein Kleinod. Mit Bildern von Picasso, Miró, Klee und weiteren grossen Künstlern.
