Firstly, at least one of the reviews already in TA is about another place; this museum charges (in 2014) 9 Euro and so is not free. However that 9 Euro may be the best value in Stuttgart. This is a brilliant museum that tells you...More

We wasted our time and Euros at this museum. The building (a castle) was more interesting than the exhibits inside. The audio guide provided only a small fraction of the information in English. The employees were rude and basically stalked us throughout the museum as...More

This is a wonderful collection ranging from prehistoric archaeological finds to recent times. All items are carefully described in German but only a few in English. As I can read German I did not enquire about guiding. The most unusual item must be the crown...More

Amazing displays of artifacts dating back as much as two thousand years. Nicely displayed and organized, but once toy enter each floor, it is difficult to find the exit. Each exit was marked as for emergency only. Made me feel claustrophobic. The price is right,...More

The entrance to the museum was surprisingly free. So can't complain. However Almost all the details of the exhibits are in German so for non-german speakers it is only a visual tour so one cannot get the most of knowing the stories behind some interesting...More

Even when there isn't a special exhibit it is worth wandering around the castle and courtyard. I like the way items are displayed but sometimes no translation

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!!

I give 4 stars just for the fact that we saw the crown and sceptre of the old kingdom of Wurtemberg. Otherwise, this is nothing more than a local history museum with a labyrinthine layout. We went for a quick look and we thought we...More
