The permanent collection is great and they offer services for research. Arrangement will have to be done in advance as most curators are engaged.

We've visited the permanent-exhibition showrooms without the special-exhibtion and we paid 3€/each (student price). The showrooms are huge and there's a lot to look at and learn. It was a cool experience for little money. The prices of the museum's restaurant seemed quite cheap too....More

The permanent collection comprises the Americas, the Middle East, Africa, Oceania, and is well worth a visit. Some of the temporary exhibitions have been spectacular, other not as exciting; read the reviews first.

Great museum divided into geographic regions of the world. The Japanese section is particularly interesting and a friend currently has an exhibit of Japanese textiles. The Japanese tea house is very real. The Peruvian collection is the best in Germany. Closed Monday.

Extremely interesting fairly small museum. It provides knowledge about other cultures and has changing exhibition topics. In the middle of Stuttgart close the Katharinenhospital and the University.

The Linden museum holds art from Asia, Africa and the Islamic world. Some of the exhibits are displayed like a Japanese teahouse. The Asian collection holds artefacts from India, Japan, China, Korea and Tibet. It has a great collection of Indian sculpture.

Focus of the museum are the American Indians. Complete collection of ethnographica, but not huge enough for a headache from brain-fill.

This comprehensive display of shadow puppets was the reason we traveled to Germany. We were not disappointed. The exhibit goes beyond just detailed information of the history shadow puppetry. The layout has an artistic feel. It looks like an art gallery. There are books to...More
