  • The Württemberg State Museum is centrally located in Stuttgart, Germany, directly at the Schlossplatz. It offers very well prepared and always informative exhibitions. Currently a featured exhibition of Swabia. In addition to the classic Exponatsbschreibungen, there's a free audio guide, which loosens up the tour. We were 3 hours in the exhibition, and it seemed to us like the time in the flight's last (speaks for a great quote).

  • Amazingly good , wonderful contents and display . Timeline great . Many of the captions in English . Clocks amazing 
  • Housed in the beautiful old palace, the Museum (of which we only visited first and second floor) allows you to trace the history of the region from prehistoric times to modern times, and manages to turn the curiosity of even the smallest thanks to some details: for example, the additional drawers under the Windows of the exhibits to see maps or more exhibits or copies you can literally touch and try (for example , furs, pieces of flint and wood, etc), the bow to pull measuring strength and distance, magnifiers etc. Pity that in English there were only general explanations and not about individual exhibits, making it preferable to use audioguides. At the entrance you are prompted to leave in the cloakroom and lockers, backpacks, jackets and even strollers, unless they are than light; There are some available in case of need.

  • 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
