Well organized museum, the permanent collection is good but there are many other items by other artists, working in a similar manner of Tinguely. In case you have the chance, I suggest to visit it.

Quite interesting, some English artist had an exhibition on, a bit too pretentious for me, The Emperor's New Clothes comes to mind.

This museum of modern art is truly unique. I’ve never been to a museum with interactive art, so this was really interesting. The art is very unusual and has great descriptions to match.

This museum is not cheap to enter but it is not a typucal art museum- it is an interesting blend of modern art with science and engineering.

I didn't know much about Tinguely even though I'd seen some of the works before, but this collection can be deep insight into his works. Some of the works are noisy and dark, but great works

At least 2 hours should be devoted to this gallery. Moving modern art is a unique experience. Great location!

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... More
