On a walking tour, we were shown moving pieces in a fountain with odds and ends from a closed theatre. It looked whimsical and we were intrigued to see what else this artist had done. We walked along the Rhine River walk and easily found...More
My wife and I really enjoyed this museum. Very different with some very cool exhibits. Right on the water and not too far from downtown. Easy with public transportation. A great insight into an amazing artist.
Pros - Cool moving sculpture, interactive art, detail stories behind the inspiration of each item
Cons - none

Just like the London Science Museum, here's a place where you can press lots of buttons and see things move. Tinguely's art was all about kinetics, and it's very well displayed. There was also a special exhibition on when I visited, giving you a surreal...More
This museum dedicated to the work of Jean Tinguely is a little different from most museums. Tinguelys' modern art seems to be about movement and many of the pieces move noisily when a button is pressed. If you are a fan of modern art or...More
The building itself has been well thought and is quite functional, large rooms, good light. not too big. Then the permanent Tinguely exhibition is at the image of the artist's Work, Check on internet before you go. I particularly liked the profile of the artist...More
Concept of having entire museum dedicated to one fellow is surely a big idea and no wonder his work has been a great contribution to science. After visiting this place one gets the answer. Moving of giant machines with kinetic energy and power of wheel....More

We walked a long way for this museum only to be disappointed. Its newly opened but not so much worth a visit. Its very modern and the ideas displayed are a bit off beat. I would say this was a waste of time and money.Tear...More

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 way downhill to get to the riverside to reach the ferries. And my memory tells me that the closest ferry still requires a bit of a walk on the museum's side of the river. Certainly, though, this is the most attractive way to reach the museum.
Alternatively, from the main tram terminal in Basel, one can get the appropriate tram that takes you up toward the main bridge. Transfer there (a half block walk) to the bus that goes over the traffic bridge. Get off at the first stop on the other side and cross a large intersection to reach the Tinguely. These trams run for longer hours and are not as subject to inclement weather or difficult water.
