Stuttgart, 8th May, 2020

On Saturday, 9 May 2020, the Mercedes-Benz Museum will be opening its doors to the public again. Initially, visits are only possible from Friday to Sunday. The Museum will continue to remain closed from Monday to Thursday.

Reopening is to proceed in accordance with officially prescribed hygiene rules. These include measures for maintaining a minimum distance of at least 1.5 metres between individuals, rules on sneezing and coughing etiquette and restrictions on the number of visitors. In addition, it is compulsory to wear face masks when visiting the Museum (also applies to children from the age of six upwards).

“I am very pleased that we are finally able to reopen our Museum. After this long period of restrictions, visitors will now be able to make weekend trips to the Museum again. Unfortunately, however, international guests, school classes and groups of travellers, who normally visit us during the week, are not yet permitted to come by. This is why we are concentrating on the period from Friday to Sunday. We are mainly expecting local visitors,” says Monja Büdke, Director of the Mercedes-Benz Museum.

The Museum lockdown was a preventive measure against the further spread of the coronavirus. In doing so, the Museum implemented the requirements of the Baden-Württemberg “Ordinance of the State Government on Infection Protection Measures Against the Spread of the SARS-Cov-2 Virus (Corona Ordinance – CoronaVO)” of 17 March 2020.

The Mercedes-Benz Museum has more than 160 vehicles and a total of more than 1,500 exhibits on show in a space covering around 16,500 square metres. The permanent exhibition tells the history and stories of mobility on nine levels – from the invention of the motorcar in 1886 right through to the future. The special exhibition entitled, “Stories of the G – 40 Years of the G-Class” has been extended and will now remain open until the end of September 2020 as things stand.
