Very impressive museum about the history of Swabian. Located in the "Old Castle" middle in Stuttgart City. Many Finds and Examples from the Ice Age until middle of 19th Century. Entrance Free!!

This museum is a great way to spend a cold or rainy day. There are lots of displays to see in here ranging from more recent historical events to the pre-history of the area. A great place for fans of History and Archaeology.

The museum is located close to the schloss and makes for a good time. The walls are richly adorned and the museum tells you a lot about the history of Stuttgart
