  • The bulk of the Landesmuseum Württenberg is harboured in the Old Castle of Stuttgart which, in turn, lies on the Schillerplatz, in the center of the said city. The construction of that Castle started ...  more »
  • Also a "not-Schwabe" from Baden - like I - can be happy here - with wit, irony and deeper meaning are almost 2000 years of Swabia info in image, sound, writing, sculpture, clothing, knick-knacks, customs and film exciting prepared and delivered! Also for children from 4 years old in the participatory Museum "Young Castle"! Who wants to know more - you lived before 40,000 years at a high level in Swabia - bear witness thereof & bear witness to the findings in the lower floors of the Museum in the old Castle! No go - it is worth!

  • The special exhibition is definitely too expensive set with 13 Euro and more than twice as expensive as the permanent exhibition where is only 6 euros. It is compulsory to include bags in the locker, so that you don't damage reasons. There is a film & photo ban in the exhibitions. The special exhibition of the Swabians has many objects in the exhibition, but it's not worth the high price of admission.

  • An amazing journey through Baden Württemberg's history, in a well set and extremely organized inventory, with an outstanding display system. Just 2 minutes away from the subway station, this is a must visit site to anyone who wishes to know about not only the cultural aspect of the region, but also historical, industrial and many more. Great place to visit.
  • On our first visit to Stuttgart in May 2010, Pat and I decided instead to visit the Old Palace which was originally a castle with a moat, built in the 13th century and once home to the Dukes of Wurttemberg. It presently houses the Wurttemberg State Museum, whose exhibits include treasures and burial objects from the grave of the Celtic prince, Hochdorf. Hochdorf is also the name of a little town on the outskirts of Stuttgart, where the prince was laid to rest in the 5th century AD under a large burial mound.
  • Good museum to know and understand stuttgart .
  • Small but nice theme and well kept.
  • An interesting museum definitely worth visiting if you're in Stuttgart
