StadtPalais - Museum for Stuttgart

The StadtPalais - Museum für Stuttgart is a Stuttgart museum dedicated to the history of the city. Opened in 2018, the museum is located in the Wilhelmspalais, the residence of the last king of Württemberg, William II. The palace was razed to the ground in 1944 and rebuilt after the war.

The StadtPalais, in a contemporary museographic conception, wants to be more than a simple museum: it acts as a scientific center of urban culture in which to discuss issues about the future, architecture and urban issues. The program ranges from political debates, to temporary exhibitions and parties at the Palais. It is a welcoming space for children, who can build their own city in the BauMit, the children's construction site, where children can become urban planners, architects, engineers and craftsmen of their own city and, equipped with helmets, solve exciting tasks, or simply they try. Two floors are dedicated to the exhibition of the history of Stuttgart, which illuminates the history of the city from the end of the 18th century to the present day from many different perspectives. The path is built around fundamental questions: what makes Stuttgart so special? What were the people of Stuttgart like and how are they now? And how does one actually become a native of Stuttgart?
