Porsche Museum, Stuttgart
The Porsche Museum in Stuttgart is an exhibition center dedicated to the history of the renowned German carmaker Porsche AG.
The museum is located next to Porsche’s headquarters in the Zuffenhausen district of Stuttgart and housed since 2009 in a futuristic building designed by the Austrian architectural office Delugan Meissl.
In a dynamic and bright exhibition space, the museum presents the history of the Porsche brand, from the first project conceived by Ferdinand Porsche in 1898 to the present day.
Over 80 cars and rare vehicles – as well as objects, artifacts, and videos – are on show.
The five levels of the museum, encompassing a floor area of 5,600 square meters / 60,000 square feet, are interconnected by an impressive ramp. Along with exhibition spaces, the museum’s building, fully accessible to people with disabilities, includes a library, a conference room, a restaurant, a cafe, and a shop.

The permanent exhibition is divided into three main sections: one dedicated to the history of the brand before 1948; one, chronologically arranged, which presents road and sports vehicles produced by Porsche after 1948, and a third one, entitled Porsche Idea which connects the two historical sections by depicting various themes.
A recently added 12-meter-long interactive installation, the Porsche Touchwall – presenting over 3000 photographs, drawings, and technical data related to the products of the German company – is located at the end of the museum’s permanent exhibition.
The museum also features a car restoration workshop and a historical archive, both open to the public.
The Porsche Museum also organizes temporary exhibitions, guided tours, and special events.
