we visited the Mercedes museum and halfway through the visit we took a break for lunch and it was a pleasant surprise! The restaurant is really the only reason to go to the museum. Great food, nice atmosphere. The museum itself is more of a collectors exhibit. We will be back.

So this was a fun museum that does everything pig, except maybe the squeal. You'll know you got to the museum by the pig sculptures on the outside. Not science oriented at all, but there are a few rooms discussing pig breeds and what-not. It's mostly pig things. It's fun to spend an hour or two there. There is a... More

If you want to know a see all about pig it is "necessary" to visit this museum. You can find a lot of stuffs about pig and you can have 1 hour of fun while you visit all the rooms of the museum. It is very good for children.

You know this will be a fun place when you drive up and there is a pig pink pig sculpture in the front lawn area inviting kids to jump on. Inside there is everything about pigs and pork in Germany. Fascinating but the best might still be the restaurant attached to the museum where you can eat all kinds of... More

maybe I have not prepared sufficiently what I am going to see here. This museum is definetely funny, but for my taste I am expecting much more information about pigs, then provided. And this museum as well provides information about pigs :-) But mostly embedded in other meaning. E.g. historic or mystic background of pigs. Shown in some arts, painting... More

A very unique and funny place to see thousands of pigs. This is a simple museum collection of pigs of any kinds and cannot be made better than it is in my opinion. Worth a visit once.

The museum offered a fascinating review of the role schwein in popular culture, history, the arts etomology and of course cuisine. It provided several interesting perspectives of an animal that has been so important to homo sapiens throughout its modern development pretty much everywhere in the world. To be honest I did not want to go but was dragged there... More
