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

Great place to spend a couple of hours. More of a collection but plenty of informative guides as you wonder round. Great place to eat too

After seeing the "pig museum" during our Hop On, Hop Off orientation and having our driver tell us that not only was the museum interesting, but also the restaurant was delicious, we journeyed back on Saturday, July 23rd to have a leisurely lunch. We were given our choice of tables by the waitress who warmly greeted us. I chose to... More

We thought this would be a good 'family' museum to visit with our 9 year old son. We found it boring and of no great interest at all. Against other sites to see in Stuttgart, this was very poor.

Has to be one of the most unusual museums I have been in but it was a lot of fun! Kids would love it. Thousands and thousands of things to do with pigs. You should visit as was very amusing.
