Vacation 2010 Day 6: Mercedes Benz Museum

st2465

As I was in Stuttgart I couldnt not visit the Merecedes Benz Museum, not because I am into cars, but because I am into interesting architecture.

The museum opened in 2006 and was designed by the Dutch architectural firm UNStudio.

I found it a very good museum, well laid out and with excellent displays.

The museum starts at the top with the oldest examples of Daimler vehicles. and visitors then descend and pass through time up to the present day.

There were also examples of what the future holds.

The entrance price was reasonable, audio guides in various languages are available, and photography is permitted..... I am tending to avoid paying to enter somewhere I cant take pics.

Between the museum and the neighboring showroom was this fine sculpture.
