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.
Great museum. Great exhibits. Great and unique permanent collection
This museum contains a lot of imagination.... I saw the exhibition of Tinguely in Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum. But most of collections are here in Basel. You may enjoy, especially for education purpose for kids.. Don't forget walk along the river side of KleinBasel after museum to enjoy a veey great coffee while enjoy the other side of Basel....... Or maybe a cool beer...cheers!
Interesting collection of works but not very child friendly and be prepared to be followed around....
If you are not into Modern Art and no idea what the kinetic art is, this place is not for you. Also the "things" must be moving when you push the button if someone before you did, they don't move. So you maybe can't catch the thing you actually should see. Price per person is 18 CHF which is overpriced I guess, but the discount card which most of hotels give you is accepted. I call this museum "Useless machines museum"
A fascinating museum in Basel dedicated to a single artist. The genius of kinetic sculptures. Interactive displays. Worth a visit. Has an excellent cafe.
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
