Museum am Lowentor Stuttgart Reviews
A Giant Step Back into History Mar 22, 2009
The Museum am Lowentor is part of the State Museum of Natural History buildings and a must see for anyone who visits Stuttgart. This is especially good for families with children who like dinosaurs. The Museum is located on the north-west edge of Rosenstein Park and opened in 1985. Most of the fossils in the extensive collection come from South-west Germany.
The fossils date back 245 million years and include the world's oldest tortoises and a skull of Homo steinheinmensis exhibit that is 250,000 years old.
My wife enjoyed the amber collection which is located to the right of the entrance. This amber has captured some amazing insects including a dragonfly and ant.
The cost of admission is Adults 3 euros, children 1.50 euros and families 6 euros.
Hope you enjoy the museum as much as we did during our short trip to Stuttgart.
