The Tinguely Museum

The museum houses the largest collection of works by Jean Tinguely (1925–1991), one of the most innovative and most important Swiss artists of the 20th century.

The permanent exhibition presents an overview of four decades of his activity, from the artist’s early beginnings in the 50s with motorised reliefs, through to the large-scale sculptures and mechanical sculptures of the 1980s.

Regular special exhibitions showcase a broad spectrum of artists and themes of the 20th and 21st century, based on Tinguely’s ideas.
