  • Place 100% dedicated to the pigs in all its forms, fluff, piggy banks, other, impressive collection but I have not personally been conquered by this visit

  • Contrary to our expectations, the Museum offered little information about pigs, pig races, attitude etc. There were tons of bric-a-BRAC figurines and figurines. The Museum is unreasonably expensive and not worth a visit.

  • Who would like to see more about pigs and learn, go / goes best in pig Museum in the East of Stuttgart. There are thousands of exhibits on the theme of pork on two floors. The largest exhibits are the Museum and are free to visit. Admission to the Museum is however subject to a charge and worth. And who is for or against pigs, can in the restaurant, which he necessarily has to happen on the way to the Museum, which eat. Also in the restaurant, many piggish exhibits, as well as some pictures of pigs is to marvel at. The food is good. It is the speciality of one or the other on the menu - not only from pigs. In the summer, a beer garden operated next door. I recommend a visit including the catering. And who is to quickly deal with the Museum (approx. up to one and a half hour you should include one), another small museum nearby visit - the Wine Museum. There are parking facilities free of charge in the immediate vicinity of the building, however not very numerous. If helpful, click Help.
