Overview

Lively history, presented in minute detail: The museum, located in Stuttgart and devoted to the history and politics of the region, has more than 200 years of the state's history on display. The museum's theme park provides an overview of the many facets of Baden-Wurttemberg - past and present - from business, to science, to religion. More than 1500 original artifacts and 1000 photographs, numerous stories, films, and info stations are waiting to excite you, delight you, or challenge you to reflect. The exhibition items bear witness to the people, their time, and their fate: love and hate, power and helplessness, victory and defeat. An English language Media Guide allows you a fascinating tour.

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 .

We thought it would be good to take in some museums while in Stuttgart. This one was well set out with many interesting displays. Our biggest problem was the welcome and the lack of translation for non German speaking visitors. If you speak/read German a...More

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".
