  • With some free time and a gloomy, cold day, we decided to visit. The collection more than exceeded our expectations. It’s a powerhouse! More Picassos than most major art museums plus the rest of the.....  more »

  • The museum has three floors: ground, first, and basement. We were there for the Picasso paintings on the ground floor which we enjoyed very much. They also had a collection of Paul Klee in the basement which were amazing in their variety. The first floor has a collection of impressionist paintings by Renoir, Cezanne, Chagall in addition to photos of Picasso in his studio. Unfortunately the AC was out on the day of our visit which made the whole museum very warm. Another downside was that no photography was allowed. Overall it was a very nice museum with friendly staff and great collections!
  • Fantastic collection of Picasso and Klee art. I learned things I did not know about these two fantastic artists just from the pieces on display here. Unique looks into both men’s artistic lives. Highly recommend everyone visit this museum while in town.
  • Fantastic museum with a great selection of artwork especially by Picasso, the museum staff was also very friendly. Just be aware that they do not accept credit cards for under 20,- Swiss Francs and strictly no bags and no photography!
  • Could have been more/better information posted throughout! Great showcase of some amazing works
  • Fantastic Picasso gallery! Really beautiful pieces.
