Alright, here goes. I have a lot more time today, so maybe I'll post a little more?
The computer lab is in the middle of a bunch of university buildings, and for a couple weeks now, a group of anarchist students have been camped out in a little green space right out side. They eat there, sleep there, play hackey-sack there, and as far as I have heard/can tell, they haven't left at all since their arrival. They have this little village of tents and tarps set up, and it is very odd. I'll try to get a picture sometime, but I don't want to be too obvious about it. Other than that.. hm. I got a small tour of some of the city from my only German friend a couple days ago. It was interesting to see what a native considered important for me to see. Also, there were sheep. On the hill, in front of the castle. Weird. So, back to the rest of Stuttgart, I suppose.


Alright, so back to the museum. Sorry again about that, it's just the way Photobucket decided to upload things. Annoying.

So, here's the outside. It's clearly a very modern building, and even more so inside. After entering, you walk through a desk to pick up the audio tour (which is given free with the 8Euro entrance fee!)

Then, you take an elevator up to the 9th floor. From there, the museum is a gentle spiral downwards. The audio tour also deserves comment. They had some sort of system set up which periodically caused the thing to start up on its own. In addition, there was none of that whole 'enter exhibit number' thing. No, you just point the machine at a little circle and press a button. Fancy.

And there you have it! I feel as though I'm forgetting something, but.. *shrug* I guess it's fated to stay forgotten for now.

I also wouldn't have chosen a car museum, but your photos are nifty. Very cool cars. Based on the photos, I'd definitely go! Interesting museum design. Just read an article on Frank Lloyd Wright & apparently he did that spiral downward design for the Guggenheim Museum of Modern Art in NY, which I've never been to. The only trouble was that he didn't account for the number of visitors. The elevator is too small. So, ever since it was built the curators have had to display the art from the ground floor up the spiral. OK, so that's your trivia for the day.
