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.

Again, I'm very subjective in my idea of a good time, but I'm trying to see beyond my personal interests. The Kunst museum is not the most amazing museum around and it is not for anyone. I can't even recommend viewing certain art pieces because they were mostly temporary exhibitions, but I can tell you clearly that if you are... More

I visited the main exhibition for an hour. I found the arts in the basement pretty nice, on the main floor Otto's work and a few others made me stop for a while. I was not thrilled for this, but I enjoyed it for the time I was there. The cafe at the basement looks nice, and the view from... More

The Kunstmuseum is a modern and contemporary art museum in Stuttgart. It is very interesting if you are a big fan of Otto Dix. If you are not however you'll find a very interesting collection. The spaces are very interesting and the building is amazing..... 10/10. During the day is a glass cube but on the night the interior lighting... More

The Kunstmuseum is located near the center of Stuttgart in a very modern building. The collection is somewhat small but had a nice variety. The museum focused on the art of Otto Dix, a German painter who was part of the New Objectivity movement in the 1900's. Even if you don't like his work, it was great to see it... More
