Intro

Since its founding, Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana (MASI Lugano) has been a cultural crossroad between the north and the south of the Alps. With an extensive exhibition at its two locations, the museum offers a comprehensive programme with activities for visitors of all ages.

Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana (MASI Lugano), curated by Dr Tobia Bezzola, is part of a small group of art museums in Switzerland that attract over 100,000 visitors each year. Since its founding, it has been a cultural crossroad between the north and the south of the Alps. With an extensive exhibition featuring a collection of temporary exhibits and designs that is regularly updated, the museum offers a comprehensive programme with activities for visitors of all ages: the newer location forms the heart of the cultural centre of LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura, while the historical location, Palazzo Reali, will be reopened in autumn 2019 following extensive renovations. Both MASI locations host the Collezione Giancarlo e Danna Olgiati, which is open to the public twice a year.

Free admission: Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana offers free guided tours in Italian and German for visitors on Tuesday and Sundays (with a regular admission ticket). Admission is free on the first Thursday of the month from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
