With its rich collection of masterworks dating from the fourteenth century to the present, the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart is among Germany’s most popular museums. Both its impressive museum complex and its holdings mirror the link between tradition and modernity. The Staatsgalerie Stuttgart presents its superb collection on some 9,000 square metres of exhibition space offered by the old building of 1843, the famous post-modern Stirling Building, and the Steib Halls constructed in 2002. Among the prominent holdings are the approximately 400,000 works belonging to the Department of Prints, Drawings and Photographs, Early Swabian panel painting and outstanding examples of nineteenth-century Swabian Neoclassicism. The chief emphasis of the museum collection is undoubtedly the Classical Modern period with art spanning the years from 1900 to 1980. Special highlights here are Oskar Schlemmer’s Figurines for the Triadic Ballet of the early 1920s, Henri Matisse’s famous Backs (1909-‒30), numerous works by Picasso including the sculptural group The Bathers (1956), and the Joseph Beuys room installed by the artist himself.

Stonishing museum with lots of pictures from Old German to Contemporary ones. It is free for students and the museum is not too long, you can visit it with 2 hours. I strongly recommend the Old German section and the Netherlands too.

The Staatsgalerie is a real gem. Lots and lots to see, and all really well laid out. The entrance fee is good value, but if you can get there on a Wednesday, it's free all day. The coffee shop/restaurant is nice too. Great apple pie!

Don't miss it! It's a beautiful museum with full of paintings and sculptures of great artist through ages! It's really big and a little complicated. Don't forget to ask for the map.

I found it a little tricky to understand how this gallery was organised to begin with, and I was also shunted to the French impressionists for some reason. Study the plan and make sure you start where you want. There's an excellent range of 20th...More

If you want to enjoy modern art, rather than old masters, go directly to the second floor and start the tour from there. There is a lot of to see there, the exhibition contains master pieces and it's nicely arranged. Enough space for the art...More

I found this gallery very boring and spent less than an hour here. The saving grace was that my hotel had offered complimentary tickets so it wasn't a case of lost money.
