History

Since 1990, the Kunsthaus Zug has been housed in a sixteenth-century building complex altered by the architect Franz Füeg to serve this new purpose. The Stiftung der Freunde Kunsthaus Zug (Foundation of the Friends of Kunsthaus Zug), which also organizes art trips; the Zuger Kunstgesellschaft (Zug Art Society) manages the Kunsthaus and owns the collection. The town and the canton, sponsors, local and national foundations and 1,200 members and patrons together form the broader sponsorship network. A comprehensive art education programme provides for communication with the schools. And thanks to the popular Kunsthaus Bar and the Kunsthaus team, every visitor feels like a welcome guest.
