  • The exposition of Swabia is really super! Great compliment to the Museum: the historical insights, the many different exhibits (pictures, busts, books, miniatures of buildings, altarpieces, Spätzlespressen,...) the various media used to bring the many issues our visitors: SUPER! My highlight was the part of the exhibition, which presented different Swabian dialects. Thank you for the beautiful exhibition, which not only with historical facts is waiting and was implemented with much technical know-how, but also shines with quite a lot of attention to detail!

  • The exterior of this museum is wonderful, the yard is already the visit, last night we saw the Interior with view on the Swabians. We say that it has been unnerving for long queues and not predictable from the outside, anyway the show deserves. You can see a large number of objects from paintings to religious and ornamental can learn a million things over this region and its inhabitants, absolutely recommended, great audio guide, very kind and attentive staff, as mentioned yesterday, we saw this show, on the ground floor you can admire glass objects, even if we then we were so tired and so the we almost missed. In a city full of museums, this is recommended if you have a little time, as mentioned, beautiful outside, nice and interesting inside. If one of the organizers of the long night of the museums were to read this review a little advice: put OUT a SIGN where YOU EXPLAIN HOW MANY FILES THERE are and the TIME of waiting ... otherwise it is unserious do stand so long people off thinking they can visit the exhibition in half an hour and then papparsi the other two code kilometers ... ...

  • 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
