25th anniversary of Museum Tinguely
Free entry, no online tickets required

The weekend of 25–26 September 2021 will mark the culmination of our silver jubilee activities. Setting the stage for our celebrations will be Solitude Park, the museum itself and the exhibition barge at anchor right next to our institution. Our countless activities, workshops, shows and varied culinary offering will be embedded in a dynamic labyrinth that everyone will be invited to explore. Saturday evening will be devoted to concerts and DJ sets. The programme has been conceived as a kind of ‹Best of› the museum’s many different activities of the past twenty-five years. 

Please note: The event takes place under application of the COVID-certificate. We therefore ask you to present your certificate and your identity card at the entrance. There is a test centre in the Solitude Park. Admission to the event is free of charge, therefore no reservation or booking of the individual activities and concerts is required. It is «first come, first served».

Tinguely Trip with the actor Simon Grossenbacher

The tour approaches the legendary Jean Tinguely through the back door. We dive into Tinguely's mindset and browse his fascination and drive. And we also show the downsides of genius. Scandals, seemingly unimportant details and abandoned sufferers come to light.
