Some very strange person, probably with a recognisable mental disorder, has collected literally thousands of pig statues, toys, pictures, bits. Several rooms, (about 10 too many for us ) are packed with this stuff. Kind of fascinating, kind of weird. Not sure it was worth...More

This was very interesting. Not sure what I expected, but it wasn't what I expected. It looks like someone has collected every pig collection in Germany. There was every kind of pig imaginable from the history of real pigs to cartoon pigs to even risque,...More

It's so funny when you see a Pig museum, it's so unique! It used to be a slaughter house in the past, and then they turned it into a museum. You can see all sorts of pigs inside - statues, stuffed toys, interesting information. It...More

Saw this pace from the hop-on, hop-off bus and went in. A solidly entertaining couple of hours, a warning for the collectors out there. The restaurant was hopping with locals at lunch time, coffee and cake satisfying.

There are a lot of pigs there indeed. Not very categorized! Some of them look like kids art for me. Not worth visiting. People are friendly though.

I love pigs (not to eat, I'm a vegan), so I wanted to give this place a look, while in Stuttgart. Initially I was fascinated but quite honestly after seeing around the first 500 pigs I couldn't be bothered to look at any more. Some...More

During the Stuttgart museum night we took the chance to visit this small museum as we wanted to have dinner in the restaurant Schlachthof next door. The exhibition was interesting and esp. some of the explanations of the guides were surprising. This is not a...More

Really funny and one of a kind place. Full of pigs all over the place. The scene is funny.. and it did not lack pigs... which is good because its supposedly a swine museum. So the name is good for the ambiance. Now for the...More
