extrastern: pig museum

schweine museum in stuttgart, germany by extrastern

stuttgart-based architecture and design firm extrastern has completed the new schweine museum in a former slaughterhouse in stuttgart, germany. with over 30, 000 artifacts revolving around the theme of the pig, the schweine museum is the largest gallery dedicated to the animal in the world.

the 600 m2 museum is divided into 25 rooms of different themes including a ‘piggy bank’ room, stacked floor to ceiling with piggy banks, and a ‘golden pig’ room which features a large statue of a ‘german large white’ pig on a rotating stage.

many of the rooms are geared toward children: the artifacts are hidden or viewable only through tiny windows, some requiring the opening of hatch doors to see.

the whole museum takes around 1-2 hours to completely experience. the space is thematically divided into five areas such as ‘history’, ‘mythological and symbolic significance’, and ‘arts and crafts collection’.

    “You could make a fairly tight argument to say that it is the single greatest health threat that has ever faced the human species. I suspect this will shorten lives, if it turns out that this is what’s going on,” he said.
