Located beside Mercedes-Benz’s factory in StuttgartUntertürkheim, the building stands like a new gateway to the city. The museum offers visitors a journey through time. 
Two chronological routes follow a double helix structure, descending and intertwining along the gallery spaces. Spiralling around a spectacular central atrium, one path winds through the vehicle collection displays; the other through historical exhibits. 
As the routes intersect, exciting spatial congurations, cross-references and shortcuts emerge within the various displays.
