Long Description:
Usually the local museum of a town of 5000 deals with local history, it is quite uncommon to specialize in modern art. But Ascona has a long history as retirement place for artists, also in connection with the famous artist's colony Monte Verita.

So with the years the arts collection of the community has grown to a notewothy size, enriched with some private collections that are on exhibition in this location also.
