• Special guided tour for children.

Your own motorcar history.

Do you know where cars came from? They were invented over 135 years ago by Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler. During the children’s tour of the Mercedes-Benz Museum, you will be able to find out more about this great invention with your own favourite toy car. Maybe you will even find the original that your car is based on and the fascinating story behind it? Or you can discover other exciting moments in the history of the motorcar. There is certainly enough to be amazed at. The museum tells this story from the beginning in 1886 right through now and into the future.


  • Every child is allowed to bring their favourite toy car from home.
  • If it’s a Mercedes-Benz, we’ll hunt for its original big brother in the museum. With a little luck, we will find the original and learn about its history.
  • If the toy car is from another brand, we will try to find comparable vehicles in the exhibition. This could be anything from a G-Class to a Formula 1 racing car.

Guide: Manuela Günther.

“I was given the idea to run guided tours for children when a friend of my son’s showed me a model of the 300 SL racing car (W 194) and told me the exciting story of the accident when a vulture crashed through the windscreen in Argentina. I will never forget his wide-open eyes when I told him that the original vehicle with the bars in front of the windscreen was in the Mercedes-Benz Museum. A legend became real history for him – in almost tangible form.”
