Guided tours

The Linden-Museum Stuttgart is the only state museum for ethnology in Baden-Württemberg. With its world-class collections from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia and Oceania, it is one of the most important anthropological museums in Europe. In addition to its permanent exhibitions, the museum regularly presents special exhibitions on changing themes that attract national attention.

In front of and behind the scenes, more than 60 employees work together to accomplish the museum’s many tasks.
As a state museum, the Linden-Museum offers attractive working conditions such as flexible working hours within a flexitime model, the possibility of mobile working and a subsidy for season tickets for public transport by the State of Baden-Württemberg (JobTicket BW).

We value diversity and therefore welcome all applications – regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic and social origin, religion/belief, disability, age and sexual orientation and identity. Severely handicapped applicants (f/m/d) will be given priority consideration if they are equally qualified.
