If you plan to visit the Mercedes museum then why not take a short walk across the river and visit the pig museum. We did, and then took the train into the city. Keep an open mind when visiting the museum, it's basically a vast collection of pig memorabilia! The items on display range from toy pigs, porcelain pigs, posters,... More

By far the oddest museum I've ever visited, once you get over the oddness its fabulous, imagine a pig collectors collection on a huge scale! We ate at the restaurant here too, the food was amazing and the service fabulous, would absolutely recommend it!

we visited the Mercedes museum and halfway through the visit we took a break for lunch and it was a pleasant surprise! The restaurant is really the only reason to go to the museum. Great food, nice atmosphere. The museum itself is more of a collectors exhibit. We will be back.

Such a quirky little museum - great fun to wander around! There's plenty of information and random facts about the pig. I never knew there was so much pig memorabilia! It's not a serious museum, but worth a visit if you want some fun and something a little different!

So this was a fun museum that does everything pig, except maybe the squeal. You'll know you got to the museum by the pig sculptures on the outside. Not science oriented at all, but there are a few rooms discussing pig breeds and what-not. It's mostly pig things. It's fun to spend an hour or two there. There is a... More

If you want to know a see all about pig it is "necessary" to visit this museum. You can find a lot of stuffs about pig and you can have 1 hour of fun while you visit all the rooms of the museum. It is very good for children.

You know this will be a fun place when you drive up and there is a pig pink pig sculpture in the front lawn area inviting kids to jump on. Inside there is everything about pigs and pork in Germany. Fascinating but the best might still be the restaurant attached to the museum where you can eat all kinds of... More

maybe I have not prepared sufficiently what I am going to see here. This museum is definetely funny, but for my taste I am expecting much more information about pigs, then provided. And this museum as well provides information about pigs :-) But mostly embedded in other meaning. E.g. historic or mystic background of pigs. Shown in some arts, painting... More
