In Stuttgart with kids

Meeting dinosaurs at Museum am Löwentor

Hi guys! 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 Smiley

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.

But of course, you’ll also see lot’s of big bones:

One exhibit touched me a lot when I was a kid: A mammoth mum in front of a fossilized baby…

My highlight nowadays: The fossilized water lilies:

The best thing about a visit to the Museum am Löwentor for 6 years old Mel was of course the museums shop where I bought the one and other mini dinosaur for my collection Smiley.

The Museum am Löwentor is definitely a highlight for kids who are in their dinosaur phase. But I had a lot of fun as an adult, too. And, what can I say, I rediscovered my love for those big creatures:

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.
