Cool :)

Very nice place. We were there for the exhibition of paintings by Giorgio de Chirico. The ambient is really nice, and the whole building is an architectural marvel.

We went for a small show of impressionists and to see the collection of 20th century art, all were from the permanent collection. It was impressive and the explanations in each room were very good, giving context the the groupings and exposure ot lesser known artists along side the more famous names using similar styles. There was also a Francis... More

The permanent exhibit is a must! The largest collection of Picasso in Germany, work by all the major masters of contemporary and modern art. A good exhibition for Francis Bacon. All very well done, and in English!

Our favorite museum in Stuttgart. Huge but manageable in 2-3 hours collection of mostly European art. The curator has been somewhat playful with the design of the collections placement so for instance you can be in a section of old masters and turn the corner and find a room full of Picassos. Excellent Restsurant in the bottom floor. Wednesday the... More

I went to the Staatsgalerie on a rainy day last weekend. I'm not much of an art enthusiast but I certainly can be very impressed by great collections. I wasn't impressed by what I saw in this museum. Additionally, I feel that the organization of the museum was confusing. They handed ma a map but there were no real landmarks... More

My artist friend used to always say "What is your vision." I can say this gallery tries but does not quiet get there. A mix of this and that and its all okay. No competition to the great museums of the world, but it is adequate for the city size. After you visit you will see what I mean. Good... More

Galleries share late night openings, and every 6 months or so there is the Long Night At The Museums, wherein all the museums, galleries, and even a mineral spa, stay open late. Public transit offers deals to get you around. Back to this galley, they have interesting collections and host to exhibitions.
