Mercedes-Benz Museum

The Mercedes-Benz Museum is the only place in the world where you can experience the history of the automobile from Day One. The fascinating journey through time begins in 1886 with the world’s first automobiles by Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler.

Over nine levels, 160 vehicles and more than 1,500 exhibits present the unique tradition and innovative power of the Mercedes-Benz marque in an architecturally spectacular, award-winning museum. Explore the Mercedes-Benz legend in chronological order, framed in a historical context.

Following a spectacular lift ride to a height of 34 metres, two connected circular tours take you from the origins of the automobile to unforgettable classics and a century of motor sport history. Automobile legends like the oldest preserved Mercedes dating from 1902, the famous compressor automobiles of the twenties and thirties or the legen­dary gull-wing door model will spark your enthusiasm.

Marking the 125th anniversary of the automobile, and underscoring the fact that automobile history is always focused on the future, is a newly designed legends room, entitled “A fresh start – the road to emission-free mobility”. Vehicles with optimised combustion engines, electric drives or fuel-cell technology are
possible answers to the questions posed by tomorrow’s drive technology.
In addition to the legends tour, there are five collection rooms presenting the major themes of Mercedes-Benz. Exhibits whose direct previous owners were famous personalities as well as mobility showpieces attract attention.

In the admission-free Fascination of Technology sector, the Mercedes-Benz Museum presents current topics from the research, design, development and production sectors.
At the end of their journey down the ages, the shop and restaurant invite visitors to linger. From here, it is just a few steps to the modern vehicles of the marque in the Mercedes-Benz Center Stuttgart.

A visit is always a memorable experience, no matter whether you dwell on the past, present or future. There is lots to discover – eye-to-eye with the icons and innovations of the history of ­mobility.
