Surprisingly spacious, full of light, lovely museum

Great building, with fine spacious galleries, well exhibited paintings. Nice bar to take a drink in...short visit only but well worth a look.

While this building is very interesting from an architectural standpoint, and the special exhibition that I saw when I visited was also pretty interesting, the permanent collection in this museum is very regionally based, with little in it outside of this area of Germany. I found it pretty unexciting. That said, there were some great contemporary works in the beautiful... More

The best way to see this museum is to walk by it at night. When lit up, it looks like a stone building inside a glass cube. The collection was disappointing. A few German expressionists, and some unimpressive contemporary works. Spend your time at some of the nearby museums or just enjoy people watching on the outside plaza.

The main contents apart from Otto Dix lack integrity and are dreadful . It's an emperors new clothes job , nobody dares say the contents are largely rubbish

Even just for their collection of works by Otto Dix and Willi Baumeister. Well presented and with a description in English.

Strictly speaking The Cube is the name of the restaurant on the top floor but the whole place is a glass cube. Entirely modern art and heavy on German modern art which can be a bit overwhelming for some. Has a good collection of Europrean and American. Excellent bookstore.

Worth visiting for the Otto Dix collection alone, spanning most of his working years. The other collections are variable in quality. Good amenities.

Look: The principal purpose of Stuttgart's Kunstmuseum is to display changing exhibitions of contemporary art. If you're not into contemporary art, you're not going to be excited about the Kunstmuseum. We went for something else: the incredible collection of the works of Otto Dix and some of his contemporaries like Willi Baumeister. If you're not into Otto Dix and German... More
