Before the Visit
Do guided tours and events take place at the moment?
Is the museum accessible barrier free?
The Kunstmuseum Stuttgart is accessible to visitors with limited mobility. Manual and electric wheelchairs, walkers, and other medically prescribed walking aids suitable for indoor use may be used in our spaces. Upon request, the museum will provide a manual wheelchair free of charge for the duration of your visit.
Are children and teenagers allowed to go to the museum alone?
Children and young people under 13 years of age may only enter the building if accompanied by an adult. It is the adults' responsibility to keep the children under constant supervision. Adults accompanying children and young people are responsible for the appropriate behavior of any persons in their care. This also applies to visits by school classes and kindergarten groups.
May I visit the museum with a stroller?
Baby buggies and strollers (without any large bags on or in the buggy) may be used in our rooms. For safety reasons, such as when we have a high number of visitors, we reserve the right to regulate admittance with buggies and strollers. A room suitable for diaper changing, breastfeeding, and feeding infants (diaper-changing room, first-aid room) is available on the ground floor of the museum.
May I take my dog to the museum?
Dogs and other animals may not be brought into the building. Guide dogs and other medically necessary assistance animals are excluded.
Are there house rules?
