Hunting for stories with a camera: the Württemberg State Museum “Junges Schloss” and the Mercedes-Benz Museum jointly invite children to take part in this creative adventure on their summer holidays in 2017. The motto of the holiday programme is “I can see something you can’t see. Become a story finder/inventor!” and marks the third time the two institutions have collaborated.

The participating children between 7 and 12 years of age spend one day from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm at each of the museums. At the Württemberg State Museum, the young story finders/inventors go on a journey of discovery through the exhibition and make a short film. At the Mercedes-Benz Museum, there is a rally through the permanent exhibition, along with a photo workshop. The boys and girls are thus able in two days to tell their highly personal museum stories with the camera and then take the results home with them.

Participation in the holiday programme costs €20 per child. This includes two lunches in addition to the workshops. Registration is possible at the Mercedes-Benz Museum by phone (0711 17-30000) or email (
