Mercedes-Benz Museum, Stuttgart
(4.8/5 based on 4,800+ reviews on the web)
Mercedes-Benz Museum displays more than 160 vehicles, some of which date back to the earliest days of the motor engine. Located at the carmaker's international headquarters, the museum focuses on the company's history. Opened in 2006, the museum is an architectural attraction in its own right. It resembles a cloverleaf, with three overlapping circular structures that cover about 4,800 sq m (52,000 sq ft). Be sure to take advantage of a chance to tour the nearby diesel engine factory. To ensure your spot on the tour of the museum and the factory, book your tickets well in advance.

  • Really very impressed by this museum. So much thought has gone into every exhibit and the whole place is immaculate. The building is built like the Guggenheim in New York, circular and starting at the...  more »

  • The 2nd time at the Museum and it now every time was very interesting. First drive with an elevator to the top, where it begins a journey through the history of the automobile. You should allow plenty of time (more than 2 h) in any case, since there is a lot to see. Admission is cheap, the staff are very friendly, everything is clean and well organized.

  • So many things to see.. A huge place that houses a very complete and detailed set of exhibitions featuring Mercedes-Benz's innovations through the years in specific real-world and real-time context. You can easily spend a full day here if you like cars. The food here is pretty good too.
  • Buy tickets online beforehand. Definitely a very nice, well maintained and interesting museum. Lot of history, not only of Mercedes Cars. The museum consists of some 8 levels and you need more than 2 hours to really enjoy it. While you can definitely enjoy the masterpieces and exhibits, the museum itself is somewhat dull. There are almost no interactions available. Biggest should be the simulator ride, which is basically a Mercedes commercial in a hydraulic capsule, which costs you extra and has another line. While the basics are really top notch and the museum is beautifully maintained, it can be a bit boring. Just walk, look, read, photograph, Room for improvement there.
  • You don't have to be a "car-nut" to visit this museum. Inside this beautiful building you will find the complete history of Mercedes-Benz with an emphasis on cars. Although other products such as buses and freight-liners are on display the car is the headliner. All of the iconic Mercedes cars are on display and the audio-guide tells you more about each and every detail (but only if you choose to!). The history of the automobile and its technology are on display with functional demo's for better understanding. My wife and I spent three hours here but if you want to see, touch and hear everything than you can spend an entire day.
  • ***TIP: buy your tickets online beforehand and print it out so you don't have to wait in line!*** (its the same price... and from now till end of 2016, they have a promotion with the Porsche museum. Where if you go to one, you get 25% off the other museums ticket. Get the Porsche museums ticket at discount since the line would probably be shorter. The Mercedes benz museum is amazing!!! A must see at Stuttgart. It's beautiful, nicely lain out, very artistic yet informational and fun! You can also buy a car right after you leave if you feel like it, there's a dealership connected to the museum. Come earlier in the day since the line tends to get longer after lunch. It'll probably take you at least 2-3 hours to get through the whole museum.
  • A huge museum of Mercedes Benz cars. If you wanna study Mercedes Benz history, there is no better place than this on earth. The tour starts from top, starting with earliest of the earliest cars. They also provide headset which informs about whatever you are looking at. The museum is well built and there is bathroom and drinking facility in all floors. You can experience driving super car in simulator but it's quite expensive starting at just £400 for 15 mins :( Anyhow, it would take at least a full day to cover the museum properly.
