Do the names Hodler or Vallotton mean anything to you? These gentlemen are two of Switzerland’s best-known artists. They and their artist compatriots are the focus of the collection of the Museum of Art Lucerne.
The collection concentrates mainly on Swiss art from the Renaissance to the present day. The museum’s temporary exhibitions, though, feature artists from here, there and everywhere. The museum is particularly strong on the mediation of art and promotion of new formats.
You might think that visiting an art museum is not really a family activity. Not at the Museum of Art Lucerne! Visitors of all ages will enjoy the experience.
The museum offers fun, family-friendly tours through its exhibitions – with a creative session in the studio.
The club runs five Saturday sessions per school year for children aged five to 13. The kids spend two hours exploring whatever exhibition is on, learning artistic techniques and creating works of art.
Sure, the museum is worth visiting for its exhibitions and great family-oriented activities, but it is also part of the amazing KKL Luzern, the architectural masterpiece of Jean Nouvel. Situated right by the lake, why not combine a visit to the museum with a pleasant coffee by the water’s edge?
Tuesday to Sunday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Closed on Mondays
