Because the guide is catering for the group as a whole, we recommend bringing along an accompanying person.

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.
