Discover the sheer variety of art: the Kunstmuseum Luzern (Museum of Art Lucerne) impresses with its ambitious international temporary exhibitions, stimulating collection presentations and refreshing displays by young artists from the region.

The Kunstmuseum Luzern has exhibited works by major painters such as David Hockney and J.M.W. Turner, and hosted attractive in-depth exhibitions featuring important international artists including Marion Baruch and Vivian Suter. Once a year, a jury-assessed exhibition called “zentral!” offers artists working in Central Switzerland a chance to be seen more widely. The Kunstmuseum Luzern focuses on Swiss art from the Renaissance to the present, with a focus on art from the 1970s. Presentations of the collection bring various artistic universes together and explore current themes and trends, while selected works receive a particular focus. Art mediation is given a high priority at the Kunstmuseum Luzern.

Art for families

The Kunstmuseum Luzern makes a great destination for families, too. Tours of current exhibitions and subsequent workshops offer the whole family the opportunity to discover new things and give their own creativity free rein.

Children’s Club

A Children’s Club for ages 5-13 takes place on five Saturdays per school year. The kids spend two hours exploring whatever exhibitions are on, learning artistic techniques and creating works of art. 

Right by Lake Lucerne

The museum is located on the fourth floor of the KKL Luzern Culture and Convention Centre, next to the railway station and lake. After visiting the museum, why not stroll along the promenade or take a boat trip to enjoy the unique views of the Central Swiss peaks?
