This museum of modern art is truly unique. I’ve never been to a museum with interactive art, so this was really interesting. The art is very unusual and has great descriptions to match.

Visited this museum on a quiet Sunday morning in December. Were intrigued by the exhibits, many you can interact with. The permanent collection is good but there are many other items by visiting artists, working in similar mediums to Tinguely. This is definitely a must...More

This museum is not cheap to enter but it is not a typucal art museum- it is an interesting blend of modern art with science and engineering.

I didn't know much about Tinguely even though I'd seen some of the works before, but this collection can be deep insight into his works. Some of the works are noisy and dark, but great works

At least 2 hours should be devoted to this gallery. Moving modern art is a unique experience. Great location!

Interactive, the mobile sculptures of Jean Tinguely are simply unique and the young visitors are also delighted, being able to activate this giant, playfull sculptures. There are always other great exibitions in this museum, so you can explore the art world.

I really liked Tinguely's moving art at Basel's towncenter so I decided to visit his museum. However at least half of the museum is dedicated to other plastic artist. At least when I visited most of the artwork exposed wasn't that appealing, and most of...More

Very unique, quite interesting, but some art was not artistic at all. Worth a visit but not a must. Some pieces are hard to explain to children, do not take young ones with you.

That depends from where you are coming. If you are coming from the other side of the river, there are several ferries that will take you across during daylight hours and when the river isn't too rough. One also has to walk... More
