    These are 2 different ones - and both are in Stuttgart. I work for one of the companies, we use the museum for a lot of international events and conferences, it has become a focal point for the company. The Porsche one is a bit smaller, but has an acclaimed architecture, and the exhibition concept is somehow more "techno". For a tourist visiting Stuttgart both are a must considering the prominence of both brands and their history.

    Yeah, both in Stuttgart. The Mercedes museum is more interactive, with the history of the automobile etc.

    The Porsche museum is smaller, but basically just Porsche porn throughout.

    However i didn't get a chance to go to Sindelfingen for a tour there...

    Sort of related, don't forget BMW Museum in Munich and VW Factory in Dresden.

    Nice set of pics, how did you light up #4? I remember that room was really dark.

    of course I am biased. But I like the Porsche more, both from the breathtaking architecture and the modern simplicity of the display.
