Mercedes-Benz Museum, Stuttgart

Must see · Architectural Building · Specialty Museum
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.

  • It's not only a car museum, also a history one. Beautiful and meticulously clean. Plan to spend there more than 3 hours minimum, a lot to see.  more »
  • The Mercedes Benz Museum is definitely an attraction worth visiting of you are passing by Stuttgart. The architecture and the fit-out itself is absolutely stunning and itself is worth visiting...  more »
  • I enjoyed the timeline along the wall that corresponded with each vehicle. I was surprised to see the racing vehicles because I didn’t know that Mercedes was involved in auto racing.  more »
  • This place is a dream place to visit for every car lover in the world. This magnanimous eight storey structure depicts the history of this wonderful journey of Mercedes Benz right from its foundation year of 1886. The museum is a testament of great and visionary engineers who made automobile (or say Mercedes Benz) an house hold name. The entrance ticket cost EUR 10 and is totally worth the visit, a must see if you are in the city of Stuttgart. The museum has nice cafes as well as a gift shop which is just great! You can easily spend 4-5 hours in the museum. They also have audio translation devices which will give you a detailed tour of the Museum.
  • Incredible!! I have never seen so many Mercedes cars in my life, they're all organized well, and they come in different eras. They also provide you with a device which is able to tell you the story through headset. Such an amazing experience for me. Would love to bring my kids to this place one day, and hopefully they will bring even more to the collection. Super!!!
  • This museum is stunning. A rich dedication to the history of Mercedes-Benz. What I found most interesting is that they also cover world history and pivotal events during the history of MB. Interactive displays and many areas to rest and relax. I love the personal pace and starting at the top. Beautiful design and smart layout. Don't miss the experience if you are in or near Stuttgart.
  • It’s so much more than a Car museum ... it is a beautiful history museum as well! We enjoyed so much how the car invention and revolution is put into the humanity context. Definitely worth visiting! One remark: it would made the experience even better if we could actually buy the online ticket (it doesn’t work on the website) because we waited 1h in the queue...
  • If you come to see the cars, there's many floors to see. While you see all the cars, you can learn a bit of history of the world too. If you read everything and see each floor with all the cars, you can spend a few hours in there. If you go on your birthday, entry is free for the birthday person and if you happen to go to the Porsche museum first, bring your ticket from the Porsche museum to get a discount to the Mercedes museum. Audio guide is free. If you come to Stuttgart and like cars, I recommend it.
