Throughout the summer, the Mercedes-Benz Museum is offering a variety of innovative exhibitions, exciting events and numerous activities for the children. To give you a better idea of the various offerings available should you visit the Mercedes-Benz Museum in person, we’ve included a sampling below of some of the museum’s many highlights taking place now and over the coming months. And if you do visit, here’s an insider tip: one option is to witness almost 125 years of automotive history later in the day at a reduced evening rate, then head over to the outdoor Mercedes-Benz Lounge and spend some time unwinding.
