Mercedes-Benz Museum to mark tenth anniversary on Thursday

Thursday 19 May will mark the tenth anniversary of the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, and the German carmaker marking the event with special events.

More than seven million people from across the globe have visited the Mercedes-Benz Museum since it opened on 19 May 2006, and since December 2015, the championship winning DTM and Formula 1 cars of Pascal Wehrlein and Lewis Hamilton have been proudly displayed on the banked motor racing turn at the venue.

A pre-work Party has been organised at the Stuttgart museum, which starts at 5am and runs through to 10am, with music and breakfast on the top floor for the invited guests.

Admission to the factory will be free on Thursday, which opens its doors between 9am and 6pm, with special guided tours also being free, while the celebrations just a prelude to a bigger anniversary event that will take place across the weekend of 4/5 June 2016, a week after the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix, with over 10,000 visitors expected to visit.

The weekend event in June will see Mercedes cars from the past, present and future, with the brand’s three pointed star indicating just that – past, present and future.   Again entrance will be free of charge, with doors opening again between 9am and 6pm.
