Two interlinked museum tours guide the visitor through the spectacular architecture of the building and the eventful history of the Mercedes-Benz brand – combining the key moments in contemporary world history with super sports cars, Silver Arrows and Gullwings. The two tours lead to the same end point: the innovations of the present.
