Medieval times will come back to life at the Württemberg State Museum in Stuttgart’s Old Castle during the hands-on exhibition “The Knights. Life in a castle” for children 4 years or older and families.
Children can explore what life was like in a fortress between the 12th and 13th century Staufer era. The Hohenstaufen, also called the Staufer or Staufen, were a dynasty of German kings during the 11th and 13th century.
The exhibition is for children to explore and touch history with various events, hands-on activities, and guided tours. Young history buffs can go on an adventure to see how people worked, ate and spent their leisure during the time of the Staufer dynasty. Interactive stations, original exhibits and staged scenes offer visitors the opportunity to relive the everyday life in a fortress.
The exhibition is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Note: that the Württemberg State Museum is closed on Mondays, except on German federal holidays. Children can only visit the exhibition when accompanied by an adult. Special group offers for children, day care centers, and schools are available as well. Children’s birthday parties can also be booked.
Tickets for children between 4 and 17 years cost €5, adults €8. For special group offers, visit here. Every Tuesday from 2-5 p.m., family tickets “Familienkarte gross” for two adults and children 17 years or younger cost €16 instead of €21 and “Familienkarte klein” for one adult and children 17 years or younger cost €8 instead of €13.
