Mercedes-Benz Museum, Stuttgart

4.8
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.

  • We were there during the "long night of the museums", had to wait even at the entrance to longer something like if you would go to the regular opening hours there. You should include best will also immediately provided wardrobe bags and jackets in the for it, then it can go. The elevator goes only once to the top - very cool, looks a little like a train of wall down. Once at the top, it goes through the history of the Benz era, and even if it was full as usual you could take a look at each exhibit without crowds and peruse the boards alone. I think not only for auto enthusiasts something.

  • The Museum is here absolutely worth seeing already from the architecture, the exhibitions are so rich and varied that you can easily record everything on a visit - empfliehlt is so a repeat, then with a different angle. The Systematics of the main exhibition going on in chronological order, starting with the horse as a means of transport. Along the wall the appearance of world events goes spiral down parallel to the technical development which shows thematically ordered vehicles in the interiors.

  • Very nice Museum for car lovers, young and old. The Museum is beautifully designed and easy to walk. The Museum is built with a timetable so that you the vehicles well the epochs can allocate. Admission is ok and there is also a parking garage directly underneath the Museum.

  • Amazing museum which provides Automotive exhibits from it's inception. The museum is very easy to follow and it's probably one of the nicest museums I have visited. The price is very reasonable and it's very family friendly. My son who is 18 months really enjoyed it. One thing I will share is that once it gets closer to closing, the attendants are very pushy. Yes, I understand the museum closes that 6:00pm but honestly, I don't need constant reminders at 5:30pm, with 30 minutes to go. If you're with a family, my recommendation is to arrive early.
  • This is THE car museum. You can see great historic cars such as the first car, historic race cars like the 250SL and other milestones in car history. The museum is very modern and well structured. You walk through the epochs of car history. At each floor there is an additional gallery about buses, utility vehicles or celebrity cars. Whether you are more interested in history, nice cars or technical details, this museum has it all. If you are visiting Stuttgart this is a must-see.
  • This place is amazing. The staff is very kind and helpful. As far as I rememeber, it has eight floors and you start from 8. floor and goes to ground floor. The cars are started from the early days and goes to present days as you go down. There are lots of Mercedes types in a really good shape and looking. There is a free of charge voice guidance and you can use it easily. All you need to do is to read the point under the explanation to the device. If you visit Stuttgart, you should see this museum.
  • Excellent museum with emphasis on historical trends and how that affected the car company over the years. The audio aid makes it a positive experience for English speakers, and all displays include a translation. They have many vehicles on display of all types. I highly recommend this even if you are not a Mercedes-Benz lover. At least you will know where the name originated!
  • Such an excellent place to know about the evolution of car industry. Have lots of models of cars that starts from vintage collection. Best thing is u can listen to the history of each and every vehicle by means of portable device which they provide. Definitely a don't miss place that tells you the history of automation industry

Where to stay in Stuttgart

Stuttgart's city center offers a number of lodging options near major sites, but consider areas just outside the center for better deals. For example, Stuttgart-West is within walking distance from the center and boasts its fair share of cafes, restaurants, markets, and theaters. Two more areas, Stuttgart-Ost and Stuttgart-Süd, are also centrally located and full of local character.
