If you like the art of Jean Tinguely and/or Niki de Saint Phalle, you should visit this little museum. But make sure to see their works in the town, too!
An eccentric collection of wonderful machines. Our French was not up to translating all the labels, but we had great fun watching all the exhibits and working out which bits moved what! If you have mechanically minded youngsters, I cannot imagine what you would have to bribe them to leave!
Just awesome! So much imagination and great fun for all ages. Tinguelly's mechanican sculptures are fascinating and a delight to watch. Each one is individual and one can spent hours watching them move. Niki de Saint Phalle's work is also fascinating as well as thought-provoking. Highly recommended. We loved it!
what a surprise....!! it was wonderful and unique...definitively worth a visit to Fribourg. There is a drawing that Niki de Sain Phalle did in 2001 sondemning the use of guns in the USA and the dangers to young people..it should be sent as a gift to President Obama!
We visited with 2 young kids (7 and 9). Kids were impressed ! There are a lot of "machines" you can put on with a red button. The visit is done in less than 30 minutes. The museum is located in the center of Fribourg and near the old town and the "Cathedral". Price is ok.
Staff friendly, helpful. This is a small museum but extremely well layer out and interactive as you can turn much of this art on yourself with a push of a button. Some pieces are best viewed fom different angles and the space and layout makes this easy. Children will enjoy this visit!
