Only one exhibit, the one in the basement about Carl Laemmle, was available with English translations (and this only upon request and provided on a separate program). The rest of the museum seemed interesting, but I was not able to read the descriptions of the...More

As a history major this is a gem. It tells the history of Baden Wurttemberg over two hundred year period. Even has its own forest within the museum. Also known as the House of History and is designed to particularly appeal to school age children.

I've never experienced anything quite like it. It is relatively small. There is so very much to take in, and the collective atmosphere is a significant part of the experience.

Excellent city and state museum - esp good on 19th c , 20th c , Nazi era , 1950s , 60s etc. Much better museum than Landesmuseum , at least for me , if you like modern history .

Greatly done exhibitions. At the time of my visit of Stuttgart exhibition about WWI took place. Stunning collection of things that told stories combined with interactive elements made it a great experience. Even though my German "ist nicht so gut".

Unfortunately, this museum is not mentioned in many English language guidebooks of Stuttgart but well worth the visit. In general, museums in Stuttgart are well presented and gripping and this one was not an exception. The museum has a large collection of exhibits arranged in...More
