When I was a kid, I loved dinosaurs. I knew many of the different species by name, could tell you their size and weight. And in these days, the Museum am Löwentor was my playground.
I haven’t been there for a while but went again last week because my once so dear museum mustn’t miss in a series about my most favourite museums in Stuttgart
On 6200 m² you’ll find many exhibits – in fact, the museums holds over 11 million items! – that illustrate life in primeval times.
Many exhibits show replicas of dinosaurs and simulations of interactions.

Fun Fact: The museum offers a variety of special events – for kids and adults! Moreover, you can book English tours (telephone: 0711 – 89 36 -126) and – of course – they’ve got English audio guides.
