Since 1990 the baroque “village manor” has been the home of the Art Gallery. Five to six exhibitions are shown annually, dedicated to present-day and 20th century art. The main focus of the collection is on Swiss Surrealism and Phantastic, as well as art from Zug and Central Switzerland. Since 1996 international artists have been engaged to work for the Museum for a certain number of years. To date Tadashi Kawamata (Japan), Richard Tuttle (USA) and Pavel Pepperstein (Russia). Kawamata has created a pathway in wood, which starts with the steps in front of the Gallery. In the garden can be seen, among other works, sculptures by the Austrian sculptor, Fritz Wotruba (1907-1976). He lived in exile in Zug during the second World War and was befriended by the Kamm family from Zug, who began collecting works by modern Viennese artists (Klimt, Kokoschka, Schiele and many others). In 1998 the family donated its collection to the Art Gallery. Opening Times
