“Golden Wheelchair” clear access award for the Mercedes-Benz Museum.
The Mercedes-Benz Museum has won yet another award for unrestricted accessibility. On 17.01.2013, at the international exhibition for Caravans, Motoring and Tourism (CMT) in Stuttgart, the Stuttgart-based organisation for the handicapped, “ABS – Zentrum selbstbestimmt Leben e.V.” presented its “Golden Wheelchair” award to the Mercedes-Benz Museum in the “Culture and Recreation” category.
Following the architectural award for “Exemplary Barrier-free Construction 2007”, the “Golden Wheelchair” is a further award for the Museum’s special architecture. Ramps and elevators designed and positioned with handicapped visitors in mind make the Museum's exhibits accessible to wheelchair users and families with pushchairs on all levels.
In addition the Museum has organised an annual “Day for the Handicapped” with an extensive event programme since 2010. This year the event will take place on Sunday, 7 December 2014.
The registered club “ABS - Zentrum selbstbestimmt Leben e.V.” in Stuttgart campaigns for the equal rights of the physically handicapped, and is convinced that living a self-determined life also includes the possibility to travel and tour without physical barriers. Each year the club presents its “Golden Wheelchair” award to outstanding, barrier-free touring operations. The award is presented in four categories: Culture & Recreation, Travel Brochures, Tour Operators and Hotels & Accommodation.
