The Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart presents the history of the automobile from its invention in 1886. 160 vehicles and a total of more than 1,500 exhibits can be seen on nine exhibition levels with 16,500 square meters of space. The exhibition aside the fascinating history of the brand, affords illuminating insights into the future. This dual function is also reflected in the architecture of the hosting building, designed by the UNStudio of Dutch architects van Berkel and Bos, Amsterdam. The interior is inspired by the double helix structure of the DNA spiral that carries the human genome. The entire Mercedes legend comes to life in seven chronologically ordered arrangements of exhibits. Here, visitors meet the vehicles representative for special eras of automotive development, from the beginning of automotive history to fascinating models from recent past and present. Each vehicle shown is embedded in its contemporary context with documents, photos, or pictures from its days. The level of “Races & Records” ends the tour. Here, the exhibits are presented on an awe-inspiring steep-bank curve which runs through all of this floor.
