  • If one remembers back on previous visits to museums as a child, where it was allowed to touch anything, preferably running socks on the floor and may carry also no jumper on the arm (offending against a plastic base), one is here the right place for a Flash-back. Perhaps the Marketing Department should time that exhibition anschauen-so not fit advertising and implementation together. Read only tables and what reading through about painting / listen to if in addition great exhibits, to which there are only two sentences, is not really Pro-visitors. For us, it's a museum visit a flop! Too bad, we would have recommended it like, but for this, you should time dust down his concept.

  • 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
