The Rosengart Collection: open daily

The exhibition of the Rosengart Collection officially opened in Lucerne in March 2002. The museum in the Pilatusstrasse 10, just a short walk from the main train station, is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the summer. From November to March, the visiting hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Formerly the home of the Swiss National Bank, the building was converted especially for the collection and with its large rooms and high ceilings is perfectly suited to display the variety of formats and styles. The Rosengart Foundation acquired the property for 13 million Swiss francs with funds provided by Angela Rosengart. However, the museum must support itself. So far the number of visitors has been satisfactory, as the collection seems to be popular with both locals and tourists.
