The museum's internationality has grown continually since it opened in 2006, with international visitors currently accounting for an almost 60 percent share of its total public. The international make-up is also reflected in the country of origin of Mr Dingding, who came to the Mercedes-Benz Museums as its eight millionth visitor in February 2017: around one in every ten foreign guests now comes from China. The museum is well prepared for its international public. The audio guide and brochures are all available in eight languages. The museum also has flags of all the countries in the world at its disposal. The corresponding national banner is usually raised when high-ranking foreign guests of state visit – and in 2017 they were additionally unfurled to welcome the first-time representatives of the specially sought nations. Meanwhile, one of the Mercedes-Benz Museum's aims for 2018 has already been set: it is seeking to add visitors from the remaining two countries of Guyana and St. Kitts and Nevis to its colourful map of the world. Guyana lies in the north of South America and has a population of around 735,000.St. Kitts and Nevis is among the smallest countries in the world. Some 56,000 people live in its territories covering just under 270 square kilometres. By way of comparison, the city of Stuttgart covers an area of 207 square kilometres and has a population of just under 620,000.
