The Long Night of Museums on 25 March 2017 has both for the visitors to experience: Mercedes stars on the vehicles, and the stars in the firmament can – providing the weather is good – be discovered looking through the Stuttgart observatory’s telescope on the roof of the museum. From 7 p.m. to 1.30 a.m., a look through the telescope will reveal the night sky above Stuttgart and the view from the roof terrace (42 metres high) a panorama of the city.
The activities on offer at the museum also include the “2nd Best of Slam”. From 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., many of Germany’s best slam poets will be guesting here, among them David Friedrich, Nektarios Vlachopoulos, Samuel Kramer, Flori Wintels, Filo and Volker Strübing. The “Best of Slam” will be held in the large hall on Level 1.
Programme for children and commuting in classic vehicles
For the youngest visitors, the Long Night of Museums starts in the afternoon. Children from 3 years are invited from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to take part in the interactive exhibition “Design Fascination”. This is where they can implement their own ideas for creating future vehicles with various materials. Every half an hour there will be an interactive museum rally for children from 8 years, plus there will be children’s tours for visitors aged 6 to 8 years (4.15 and 4.45 p.m.). The VfB mascot “Fritzle” will also be making a guest appearance at the museum from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The evening programme at the Mercedes-Benz Museum continues at 7.30 p.m.. The Württemberg Automotive Club will once again be offering its “rolling museum” from 7.30 p.m. until midnight: in classic vehicles, the Long Night of Museums guests can commute between the Mercedes-Benz Museum, Porsche Museum and Stuttgart’s Schlossplatz.
EY ALTER – strengths instead of stereotypes
The special exhibition “EY ALTER – You can find out about yourself” and the permanent exhibition at the Mercedes-Benz Museum will be open until 2 a.m. (final lift operated at 01.30 a.m).
