Porsche Museum Stuttgart / Zuffenhausen

A visit to Porsche Museum Stuttgart felt like a walk back in history lane in combination with a Window Shopping-experience. I mean, I would totally love to take almost every exhibited Car with me, to built a huge garage with these awesome pieces of art and sound. My personal all-time favorite of Cars I’d own in real life are the Porsche 924/944 (they are actually pretty cheap with good models starting at around 4.000 €!), while my ultimate dream Porsche would be the model 993. Not only because I was born in 1993, the Design is different to previous and succeeding models but huh, the Price is something not pleasantly to hear. Let’s stop with this daydreaming about owning Porsches I wouldn’t use anyway, back to my visit to the Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen.

As Porsche is a Company with a long tradition they opened their first small museum in 1976, with a space for just about 20 cars. As this was way to small they decided to built a bigger one close to their own Headquarter in the district Zuffenhausen in northern Stuttgart. This current museum opened its doors in January 2009 for the first time and already from outside it’s an architectural highlight and definitely standing out from the buildings around. Now about 80 Cars can call this their new and permanent Home, in the archives are in total about 450 vehicles stored. Besides a part of Cars that are always on Display there are changing temporary exhibitions on a regular basis. Like currently and until September 13 „Porsche and the Fifties. From Stuttgart into the world.”.

If you enter the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart through the main entrance the first thing that welcomes you is a Café and the cash desk area. The ticket price for eight Euro per adult is fairly okay and you immediately enter the exhibition in an upper level through an escalator. Now you’ve made your way up to heaven – a petrolheads heaven called Porsche Land. Besides the iconic 911 models from several decades you find another classics like the 356 in the permanent exhibition as well as some rarities and winning Motorsport racing-machines. If you want to know more about each car there are boards telling the basics about each one, or if you rather want to listen you can borrow an audio guide for free, after buying your ticket, to listen to longer stories.
What I really liked is the newly installed and 12m long “Porsche Touchwall” where you can touch you through nine decades of Porsche models.

After you finished your visit to the Porsche Museum in Zuffenhausen you can either go Shopping (no widow shopping there anymore) at the Museum Shop or enjoy a Cappuccino, snack or three-course meal at one of the gastronomes inside the building.
And just in case you want to buy something bigger to remember your Trip to the Museum, there is a Porsche Dealer with all the current models right on the other side of the street.

The museum is open daily from Tuesday to Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm. The ticket price for adults is 8€, reduced for students or seniors 4€ and kids under 14 years (if accompanied by an adult) are totally free.
