The Mercedes-Benz Museum and Mercedes-Benz Center are located near the gates of the Daimler Chrysler plant in the suburbs of Stuttgart, Germany.

Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach developed the four-stroke internal combustion engine in 1882 and, in 1886, produced the first viable four-wheel automobile in their experimental workshop near this factory. A few years later, in 1904, the Daimler Motor Company started production here.

The 47-metre-high Mercedes-Benz Museum is the focal point of the Mercedes-Benz World complex. Inside, two routes spiral down, helix-style, from top to bottom. One guides visitors chronologically through the corporation's history and legends, while the other displays a collection of vehicles once produced here.

The permanent collection of 180 cars covers an exhibition area of nine floors and 17,000 square metres. Exhibition themes include Legendary Automobiles, Technology and Research, Adventure, Myths and Milestones.

Races and Records pay tribute to the company's long tradition in the world of motor sports — from the Phoenix racing car and the famous Blitzen-Benz to today's Formula One and DTM racing cars.

Mercedes-Benz Center displays the latest Mercedes-Benz passenger cars. Prospective customers can discuss the cars with staff, view different models and depart on test drives.

Mercedes-Benz World also features the interactive Fascination of Technology section, a children's museum, with an inventors' studio, shops, catering facilities and special vehicle displays.
