First time to see Picasso. They had a very comprehensive English paper guide that helped me a lot to understand what I saw. Also the pictures of Picasso and Mr and Mrs Rosengart added an extra touch. Take at least 90 minutes when visiting.

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. Well worth a visit for art lovers.

We found this gem by accident. It is actually very near the train station. The collection is not huge but worth a visit. The artists are world-renowned ! What a nice surprise indeed....

I happened to pass by this museum by chance, and decided to go in and check it out. I'm really glad I did. Great art collections. I learned a lot about Pablo Picasso in this place.

The Swiss have the best private museums, and this is one of them. All Picasso on the ground floor ; all Klee on the floor below ; a mixed bag of modern artists upstairs. Rosengart was a friend of Picasso and family and there are many private photographs and artworks/memorabilia from that relationship, providing a rare indulgence in the personal... More

This is a wonderful gem to visit for art lovers. No pictures allowed. I can understand the flash part but in this day and age of smart phones and selfie addicts, goo luck with... More

On second floor there was a variety of Manet, Matisse, Cezanne and a few others My favorite part was on the 3rd floor where some very personal photos of Picasso in... More

Great simple art show with a lot of simple, small Picasso's drawings. Being non spectacular this is maybe a place for specialists and connaisseurs (french!)

This museum was founded by the daughter of a well known art dealer who was a friend of Picasso. His daughter was featured in a number of Picasso's works and there is an interesting video where she discusses her meetings with Picasso. Ther are also works of Klee and other artists of the time on exhibit.
