About
The Museum celebrates the automobile invented by Carl Benz in 1886: it relates its history and tells its stories, bringing both alive by placing them in the context of technology, day-to-day life, social history and popular culture. More than 160 vehicles of all types are the main protagonists. They range from some of the oldest automobiles ever built to legendary racing cars and futuristic research vehicles. Together with other exhibits, they form the centrepiece of the permanent exhibition covering a total of 16,500 square metres in twelve rooms. This unparalleled world can be discovered on two tours that follow a 'Legend' and 'Collection' narrative.

    Amazing museum - highly recommended
    We visited Mercedes Museum, Porsche Museum in Stuutgart and BMW Museum in Munich. Mercedes Museum is truly the BEST, it integrated Mersedes Bentz history with World History/Development, it’s quite unique learning experience. You take elevator all the way up and then start walking down, very well designed and organized. We loved it.

    A must for petrolheads - even if you're not a Merc fan
    Amazing building that looks and feels new, though being a few years old now. Bargain entry price of €12. Possibly the grandest piece of brand marketing on the planet. Excellent portrayal of the story of MB from the earliest days, with wonderful exhibits and wall panels telling not just MB history, but also the wider contemporary world events. Rather a scant mention of MB's total co-operation with the Third Reich, but it was there. It's not perfect. The headsets with commentary are possibly the worst designed I've ever come across (bit like my new E300 coupe which I sold after 8 months) and almost impossible to use if one wears glasses. I gave up after 5 minutes. The layout isn't perfect - it's easy to miss out parts, as they require a detour or retrace of steps. It was also a bit on the warm side, the aircon patently struggling with the 36C outside. It's also not that easy to get to. Staggering there isn't a U-Bahn stop right outside. We took cabs each way, which proved to be pricey. I'm more of a BMW man, but seeing how our Munich friends seemed to have lost all skill to design attractive cars at the moment, I was more benevolent to Merc than I have been in the past.

    Quality museum experience.
    Beautifully presented cars and experience. Extensive collection, attempts to add more interactive elements per floor than porsche or bmw museums. Only critique would be the restaurants are very basic. Same top quality as Porsche and BMW experience.

    Well-designed and Carefully Thought!
    Even if you are not interested in automobiles, this is a fascinating museum. So well-designed, easy to manage (start at the top and walk down), with everything placed in context of history and technology in both Germany and the world. Your ticket gives you both entrance and earphones. I strongly recommend it.

    Trip to Museum with Friends
    Probably one of the best museums I have been too. Special thanks to our tour guide Padraig, whose enthusiasm for the cars and the brand was infectious. He really made the trip and his knowledge is incredible. From the beginning to the very end of the tour the whole party was engaged. To do the museum properly you need the whole day if you are into cars. The building the museum is in really is incredible. I would like to visit again and do the architectural tour. Thank you for a great day out.

    Brilliantly designed
    This is an absolute must-see in Stuttgart. Even if you’re not into cars, there’s enough to detain you here, including a lot of artwork and history panels to set the scene on the different eras covered. The most interesting stuff for a non-petrolhead like me is the early stuff at the beginning - some really rare examples of early motors including apparently the world’s oldest van. The building design and the way the exhibits are set out is first class. It could hardly be improved. Everything is in both German and English, and is easy to read. There’s no squinting at small print like with some museums. Guided tours are offered in English but we didn’t feel it was necessary to go on one. Apart from glitches with the audio guide, which was fiddly to use and uncomfortable to wear, this was a great day out.

    Absolutely amazing
    The Mercedes Museum is a captivating journey through the history of automotive excellence. It's unique, helical architecture sets the stage for an immersive experience that leaves visitors in awe. The exhibits, thoughtfully organized by era, showcase the evolution of Mercedes Benz vehicles and the innovation that has defined the brand. Whether you're a car enthusiast or simply appreciate design and engineering, this museum is a must visit.

    Afternoon in the Mercedes museum
    Very nice walk through the history of car making. From the first engine, to car testing and modern cars. Cars, trains, buses. Very nice description at the museum part along the line of history, in German and English. The war time is not avoided but properly covered. Also the history of labor and foreign is discussed. In the end e come for the cars of course. One thing I missed: there wasn’t a car one could sit in. Would have loved to have a race game or a picture place with a nice sports car for my daughters.

    Absolutely loved it
    This was on my bucket list and exceeded expectations. Even if one is not interested in cars the building itself is mind blowing. I loved the timeline, aesthetics, unique displays, and proximity to vehicles. It’s so well done and a highlight on my trip to Germany.

    Great historical tour of Mercedes
    A different feel to the Porsche museum, more of a historical walk through of Mercedes over time. It’s probably a longer visit than Porsche due to its size, so it’s a really good chunk of time. We really enjoyed the experience and especially seeing the Gullwing, which was breathtaking.

Because I had made my reservation in advance, I was able to avoid the long lineup at the ticket booth. The museum is very large and never felt overly crowded, even with a lot of visitors. The museum displayed the evolution of the Mercedes Benz company, starting with Daimler, Benz, and Maybach and continuing through their relationship with Jellinek, the girl who gave rise to the Mercedes name, and continuing through the company's growth alongside a world history that demonstrated how the Mercedes Benz company advanced in tandem with global events. Visited for roughly 2.5 hours, but if more time had been available, we could have easily spent much longer. Strongly advise going if you're in Stuttgart.

I visited on a Sunday in early July. I used the hoho bus to get out to the museum.
I arrived at 10.45 am and it was already starting to get busy.

When I left after lunch the queue to enter must have been 200 long. The moral to this is get there early !

The 2024 price for adults is 16 euros. Buy your ticket in advance to jump the pay counter.

The whole museum is a wonderful history of Mercedes through the ages - the timeline from inauguration to present day including concept cars. The audio guide is very good.

The museum is a must see when visiting Stuttgart. However, I would strongly advise to try visit midweek and out of school holidays.

A couple of notes. The cafe and restaurant are on the expensive side - 3.75 euros for a Coke.

The gift shop is extensive and expensive, but you can find a good moment if your visit at reasonable price

Booked in advance which meant I was able to skip the huge line at the ticket desk. The museum is huge and despite the large number of visitors never felt excessively crowded. The museum showed the development of the Mercedes Benz company from the early days of Daimler, Benz and Maybach through their association with Jellinek (the girl called Mercedes father, where the Mercedes name came from) through the development of the company alongside a world history showing how Mercedes Benz company progressed alongside world events. Spend about 2.5 hours visiting but could easily have spent a much longer time if more time had been available. Definitely recommend a visit if you are in Stuttgart.

Absolutely incredible museum experience! The building itself is something to behold never mind the exhibits! Tells the story of the birth of the motor car and the company blended perfectly with global and social history. Some beautiful exhibits laid out in an easy to navigate way. Top cafe and shop into the bargain. A must visit venue!

Me & my family dropped by the museum while waiting for a football match to start at Stuttgart Arena (just a stone's throw away). I loved how it is so conveniently located within the vicinity, we spent almost 2 hours exploring the museum & admiring the automobiles & buses, & dropped by the cafe therafter to hand around before the football match. Unfortunately we didn't have time to visit the Porche museum, but defnitely recommend going to both museums since its so nearby.

Audio guides are provided, & you can basically go on a self-tour while the audio guides brief you on the history & all. Just tell the staff your preffered language. Total 7-8 floors to explore, you go from the top level to the bottom, & there's a restaurant & cafe located on the 1st floor.

This is a truly world class museum and deserves about 3 hours of your time. Of course it is about the story of one of the most iconic German brands. But also so much more. There is much visual and audio material devoted to the historical context of Mercedes Benz. As you walk through the museum you are reminded of contemporary events happening both within Germany, Europe and indeed worldwide. You are led on a multi faceted trip down memory lane. The vehicle collection through the brand’s evolution is truly impressive as is the architecture of the museum itself. There is a small self service cafe on site and a larger restaurant that is open until 4 p.m.

Getting there by public transport is not so easy. The museum access instructions are poor and confusing. The nearest U Bahn station is only Neckar Park Stadium when the U11 is running. And it only runs when there is a big event happening. This was not clear from the official instructions. Otherwise the nearest stop is Mercedes Strasse and you then walk for 30 mins or so to the museum. Another option is to pick up the Sightseeing Tour Bus, using it to see the city and access the museum at the same time.

Having visited the Porsche Museum earlier in the day, maybe it was too much to then go to the larger Mercedes equivalent. I am not really interested in Mercedes road cars, trucks and buses so large portions of the museum we walked by - although seeing the Uhlenhaut SLR was very special. As were the LSR cars. And the vast number of pre- and post-war "Silver Arrow" race cars was awe inspiring. I think my overwhelming feeling was that the museum was designed to be a history of the world rather arrogantly showing how Mercedes was, in Mercedes opinion, a linchpin to all major events! But glad I have been...

I am a car guy and a racer so this was of course a must see.. it is grey at that they go way beyond cars and deal with the buses, trucks etc. I dint want to be complaining but they clearly avoid 1939 to 1945. If I were them I would just fully embrace it and knock it down. It’s part of the deal, but basically completely missing.
