The annoying exterior aside, this is one of Germany's great art museums, and once inside, the galleries are spacious and refreshing. Plan on a half-day to see everything, including special exhibitions which are of high quality (I was lucky enough to be there while Julian Rosefeldt's Manifesto was installed). The extensive Renaissance religious art holdings are spectacular, and the 20th-century... More

It is absolutely fantastic. There is a room full of Picasso but there are other great, very famous masters. There are rooms and rooms full of medieval art from the region. Huge Altars with intricate design. I believe it is free to go on Wednesday to the General Exhibition but you have to pay for the Special ones. When in... More

The gallery has good collection of paintings of renaissance and baroque. The gallery is divided accroding to geographical principle (Italian, Hollander, German etc.). There is also a bit of modern art. In line to permanent exhibition there are also temporaries. They have Rembrant's selfportrait and several paintings of Modigliani.

The entrance to the gallery displays a lovely sculpture of 3 men walking and once into the gallery rooms, one is treated to an exceptional collection, beautifully displayed in large rooms, without ever feeling cluttered. The Picassos in the collection are exceptional and the building housing this collection is a real treat. The terrace shows off the building and the... More

It's a really nice gallery with a really varied and cool permanent collection ! The temporary exhibitions were great too (Bacon and Manifesto) however Bacon was a bit overpriced considering it was a small exhibition. Also the audioguides are in German only which is quite disappointing. They could do with more lockers too and a better selection of stuff in... More

I come to the State Gallery for see the Impressionist part of it but it was closed. At that point I visited the rest of the museum, it was good and it worth a visit.

Much bigger than I'd imagined so allow at least 3 hours to see everything. Excellent permanent collection and classy temporary exhibitions. Far better than youd expect for a regional gallery.

The location is close to Schlossplatz but the road it is located on is hideous and somewhat off-putting but don't let this deter you...superb museum, an oasis of peace in a city that can be rather underwhelming at first - not helped by being a building site at present. The Bacon exhibition with over 40 paintings was a great bonus,... More

If you visit Stuttgart and you are interested in art, it's really recommended to visit the Staatsgalerie.
