Finally, after a long search and an even longer voyage the world’s biggest Pig Museum has found a new location which is worth this huge collection and which will attract visitors from all over the world. More than 50.000 exhibits from everywhere on this planet, welcome you to a swinish experience.
Separated on 25 thematic rooms, pigs of any kind present their story and history. Pigs to smile, to love, to cuddle and to touch – there is a pig for every sense in here. From zoology over the pig in arts and culture to the fantastic pigs from several myths and legends – in this unique museum changing exhibitions offer you a fascinating overall view on the world and the figure of the pig.
Not only friends and lovers of swinish art, kitsch and culture will get their money’s worth in the old administration building of Stuttgart's former slaughterhouse. Lovers of delicious German food and genuine beer specialities will immediately feel at home in the inviting ambience of its Jugendstil architecture. A wonderful big beer garden with seating for some 600 guests, cosy restaurants for around 195 diners, the idyllic vine arbours and a terrace with a magnificent view over the sculpture garden invite you to enjoy a tasty meal – whether you prefer grilled sucking pig, a crisp knuckle of pork or a variety of traditional Swabian delicacies.
