I recently visited the Museum Tinguely in Basel. It is an art museum that shows the life and works of the artist Jean Tinguely (1925 – 1991) in a permanent exhibition. Especially if you are interested in mechanics, kinetics, machine-like sculptures and movement in art, this is the place for you. The museum was opened on October 3, 1996.

In addition to a permanent exhibition, there are also temporary guest exhibitions by Tinguely’s friends or well-known artists.

Jean Tinguely was a Swiss painter and sculptor of the Nouveau Réalisme. He is considered one of the main representatives of kinetic art.

The museum is located in Solitudepark on the right bank of the Rhine and is a gift from F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG (Swiss multinational healthcare company) to the city and region of Basel on the occasion of the company’s 100th anniversary.

At the same time as visiting the museum, I recommend the city to you for sightseeing, strolling and eating out. Basel is always worth a visit.
