***Quick peeks are a group of images to give you an idea of what to expect during your visit.
There are a few cars displayed outside the entrance and a shiny glass ceiling above which reflects all the goings-on below.
There will be an information booth and a row of ticket counters as soon as visitors walk in. On the ground floor (this would be considered the first floor in the US) guests will find a workshop, a snack bar, and a gift shop. An escalator leads up to the main floor.

A few tips:
- If you only have a few days to spend in Stuttgart. Plan your trip to the Porsche museum on a Sunday. Most shops are closed on this day so you won’t miss out in town.
- The Mercedes Benz museum is only a 22 minute drive away. You can also take the train there. There is a train stop at the Porsche museum. You will have to walk a bit after getting off the train station near the Mercedes Benz museum.
- Entrance fees: Adults – €8, Children under 14 free, Family price €20.
- After paying for your ticket, move forward to the next counter for audioguides. You can set it for the language of your choice. Just type in the number that corresponds to the car model you like to learn more about it.
- Plan to spend at least 1 – 3 hours here (depending on how much you get into the displays). The Mercedes Benz museum is 3x bigger so plan accordingly.
