We continously develop new offers and would love to keep you updated:
Public guided tours for seeing impaired and blind persons (in German)
We offer public guided tours for seeing impaired and blind persons through the Jean Tinguely collection, every now and then also through our temporary exhibitions. There are different artworks on focus on every date. So you can come every time and always explore something different.
No booking required. For tour participants the museum admission is free. Meeting point: info desk
Because the guide is catering for the group as a whole, we recommend bringing along an accompanying person.
COVID-19: Participants will be asked to provide their contact details before the tour starts.
Private guided tours and workshops for seeing impaired and blind persons
Guided tours and workshops treating the collection or the temporary exhibitions. Topic and duration on demand, we try to accomodate your language preference. Workshop possible before the official opening hours.
Booking required: +41 61 688 92 70 oder via >> email here.
Touch and being touched: Model of the museum building
The iron sculptor Jean-Marc Gaillard created a model of Museum Tinguely in the scale of approximately 1:85. It can be observed and touched. You can find it right outside the museum’s entry where it is permanently installed.
