Haus der Geschichte Baden-Württemberg

The Baden-Württemberg experience

A State’s History

The Haus der Geschichte Baden-Württemberg (House of History Baden-Wurttemberg) showcases the history of southwest Germany from 1790 to the present.

Lively history, presented in minute detail: The museum, located in Stuttgart and devoted to the history and politics of the region, has more than 200 years of the state's history on display. The museum's theme park provides an overview of the many facets of Baden-Württemberg - past and present - from business, to science, to religion. More than 1500 original artifacts and 1000 photographs, numerous stories, films, and info stations are waiting to excite you, delight you, or challenge you to reflect. The exhibition items bear witness to the people, their time, and their fate: love and hate, power and helplessness, victory and defeat. An English language museum app allows you a fascinating tour.

Museum in Stuttgart: Current Special Exhibition

The Haus der Geschichte presents the Special Exhibition "Hate. What Moves Us", running from December 17, 2021 to July 24, 2022.

In every exhibition, the museum examines history from a special angle, and often from a completely unique and new perspective. It's not just the thematically broad spectrum of the exhibitions that makes them so special - past exhibitions have covered topics such as the terror of the Rote Armee Fraktion, expellees, football/soccer or wine. They are also consistently aligned with the principle of the Permanent Exhibition: artifacts and stageing build a unique narrative. The Haus der Geschichte engages prestigious designers to ensure that this is successfully achieved.
