Museum Tinguely - Review

There’s something in the soil of Switzerland; the country has produced some stunningly talented people one after the other. One such gem is Jean Tinguely, a world renowned sculptor. He was known for making sculptures with mundane articles and turning them into absolute joys to view. Be careful not to touch any of the mechanical pieces of art as they could topple at the touch.

The four floor museum not only provides an insight into the artist’s creative evolution but also showcases Jean Tinguely’s journey through Europe and the United States by way of sketches. Don’t forget to check out the mechanical sculptures doing their magic as they are activated every five minutes.

Museum Tinguely, Basel Reviews

  • Interesting place with a lot of weird stuff. I have to be honest here, I don't get modern art and a few of the temporary exhibits fall in that category. But, the Tinguely exhibition was extremely interesting. This man made some fascinating machines, though his inspiration was curious, they are very cool to see in person as they spring to life.

  • A fascinating museum in Basel dedicated to a single artist. The genius of kinetic sculptures. Interactive displays. Worth a visit. Has an excellent cafe.

  • A strange collection of items made by the Swiss artist Tinguely with an area for temporary exhibits. As a museum it was informative and entertaining and the café housed in the basement was a step above most museum cafés. The reason for only three stars is that many of the exhibits were moving objects but there was no explanation about the activation process. Half of the exhibits did not turn on at all.

  • In front of Museum is a good place to start to swim with wickelfisch! Awesome activity during the summer in Basel!l

  • Interactive exhibition as some pieces you can press to move. It was interesting and unusual
