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

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

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

Only worth going if you have the museum pass. A few rooms were interesting but a lot of the more modern pieces were uninspiring.

I'd only recommend this gallery if you were using the Stuttcard pass. If I paid full price I'd half to deduct another star. As with most modern art collections, it's going to be of varied quality. The Otto Dix and George Grosz were great, in a disturbing way. I found as the art got newer it got less interesting. Some... More
