Look: The principal purpose of Stuttgart's Kunstmuseum is to display changing exhibitions of contemporary art. If you're not into contemporary art, you're not going to be excited about the Kunstmuseum. We went for something else: the incredible collection of the works of Otto Dix and some of his contemporaries like Willi Baumeister. If you're not into Otto Dix and German... More

Only worth going if you have the museum pass. A few rooms were interesting but a lot of the more modern pieces were uninspiring.

I'd only recommend this gallery if you were using the Stuttcard pass. If I paid full price I'd half to deduct another star. As with most modern art collections, it's going to be of varied quality. The Otto Dix and George Grosz were great, in a disturbing way. I found as the art got newer it got less interesting. Some... More

Had to leave this gallery early because of the unbelievably disturbing effects of the sound installation on the ground floor. It's completely ridiculous that this absurd and pointless piece of 'art' is allowed to spoil the visitor's experience of the gallery:the noise permeates the ground floor.

It was 'Meh ok' I guess. Compared to some galleries, it offered nothing new to me. The video exhibits offer subtitles in English but many sections of art require German to be read for most. The descriptions and stories behind the art are minimal. It will take no more than 2 hours (at a push) to go around this gallery.... More

besides the permanent collection the museum has varying exhibitions to current topics. A thing which can always be done for free: go up to the restaurant and have a nice view on the Schlossplatz as well at night on the city centre.

Great way to spend a couple of hours in Stuttgart. The Otto Bix works are mesmerising and lots of intestesting modern German art. The building is awesome and end your visit with a coffee from the restaurant on the top floor (very good value) for the best views of the city.

Like many modern art museums, the building is the star of the show that happens to feature art galleries. The exhibition as of May 2016 included a diverse collection, including two thought provoking video installations. The Otto Dix collection is most memorable. On the critical side, lighting in the museum is awful. The gallery ceilings contain uniformly illuminated panels, but... More

Varied collections to meet all interests in this multi-floor, varied exhibition space. Has modest bar and store, and enough space for multiple concurrent and different exhibitions.
