Tips from locals
A unique and interesting museum, even if you're not very into art. Jean Tinguely makes installations, which you can see all over Basel (one is right in front of the Basel Theatre).
During summer our river is getting crazy. Everybody goes for a swim after work or during the whole day. A very nice spot to jump into the water is the Tinguely Museum. From there you can float as long as you want until you reach the last bridge "Voltabrücke" with the glass front. It's a must do…
This art makes a good mood. The fantastic machines are not simply on the ground but run also at certain times of the day (about every 15 minutes). The TV documentaries are also informative and worth seeing. 2 hours should be scheduled for Tinguely museum at least.
It is my favorite museum in Basel. Jean Tinguely is usually spotted at the Tinguely fountain in the center, but visiting the museum is a much more intense experience. The collection of machines in that one space is truly mind-blowing and definitely worth visiting. Even for kids it is interesting…
Tinguelys art are sculptures... but they do not stand still, they move! Great, amazing, astonishing, frightening... also fun for kids. One of the best art places in Switzerland.
