Who ever said that this is a must see in stuttgart needs to think again, its more like someone had a pig fetish. Its just shelves and shelves of pig memoribilia with little explanation of what was in the room. In our opinion, it was boring, smelly, and not worth the time or money. I wouldnt even say it was...

It's the first pig museum we have been to! A curious collection of pig memorabilia from around the world hosted on two cramped floors on a former abattoir. Some very funny artifacts. The restaurant (mostly pig-based) was excellent, too. Good value

It worth a visit. Just for fun. The museum itself is more of a collectors exhibit, but on a huge scale. The collection is not small so you will get annoyed at a certain momement by number of pink exibits. But still go! you will get an hour or two of hours laughing. And teh food in the restaurant is...

If you plan to visit the Mercedes museum then why not take a short walk across the river and visit the pig museum. We did, and then took the train into the city. Keep an open mind when visiting the museum, it's basically a vast collection of pig memorabilia! The items on display range from toy pigs, porcelain pigs, posters,... More

By far the oddest museum I've ever visited, once you get over the oddness its fabulous, imagine a pig collectors collection on a huge scale! We ate at the restaurant here too, the food was amazing and the service fabulous, would absolutely recommend it!

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.

Such a quirky little museum - great fun to wander around! There's plenty of information and random facts about the pig. I never knew there was so much pig memorabilia! It's not a serious museum, but worth a visit if you want some fun and something a little different!

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
