Lange Nacht der Museen: Stuttgart

There's an event in Stuttgart where a ton of museums and other buildings around the city are open late at night and you can visit all of them on one ticket.

 Inside the Neues Schloss. Just after I took this picture, a couple from the tour started dancing in here. The tour guide laughed at them and said something in German. All I caught was "Nein!.... Essen..." So I'm guessing this room is for eating, not dancing :)

Before the museum event started, I got to visit some of the malls around town.

 My first time in one of those pay-toilet places on the street. You have to be pretty desperate to use one, haha :) I just kept thinking of that quote from Daddy (via Mary): "This is such a cultural experience!"
