Without plans to visit any art museums during a 4-day stay in Stuttgart, we were taken by this magnificent building right on the"main drag" where we walked by by every day. Plus there is a large Calder parked right in front. The building is quite fabulous down to all the finishes. The permanent exhibitions are excellent and they always seem... More

prime location, beautiful building, a landmark in the city. The permanent exhibition is interesting, the galleries pleasant to be in. This is the ideal museum - not too big nor small, the layout is an interesting backdrop to a wonderful collection (and at times you see the street and pedestrians as you go through the galleries), excellent services (shop, lockers...

Perhaps people who prefer modern art will enjoy this museum more. But as someone who leans toward realism and neo-classicism, I found little of interest. Perhaps three rooms had traditional art and the remainder was so modern that it was often stretching the definition of the art.

Great venue for the contemporary and modern art lovers. Interesting building, nice exhibitions. Unfortunately, not free with too many security staff watching your every move.

Be aware that several of the reviews do not distinguish the Staatsgalerie from the Kunstmuseum. They are separate museums and the differences are like night and day. The Kunstmuseum is a rather small museum. The upper level is predominantly paintings by Otto DIx, and I recommend this museum because of this collection. The modern art, much of it minimalistic, on... More

This is an excellent contemporary art museum. There are lots of stairs but there are also convenient elevators. The bookstore is outstanding. The staff is super-helpful, with information not only about the museum itself but about tourist sites in the area. Highly recommend.

German art is well represented in this small museum. Some French impressionist works, but otherwise a small regional art museum. Don't be put off by the lime green lego-land look of the entrance, they have a strong collection of modern art here.

I liked the fact that it was open until 21.00 at Friday night, I only visited the main standing exhibition. Otto Dix works are amazing, others did not draw my attention. It is considerable small and may not take more than 1 hour of your time.

Because I live paintings and art I usually make sure to visit at least one art museum where ever I go.This had a lot of modern paintings which are not my passion and a few interesting Picasso,Braque,Klee Pisarro ,Monet,Manet,but don't expect a huge collection.Interesting some Italian paintings probably from Giotto on two wooden pieces dated around 1400.
