What a surprise for the Wecke family from Stuttgart-Birkach: When Mrs Wecke bought the admission tickets for the museum on an April morning for her family, they included the nine millionth ticket since the Mercedes-Benz Museum opened in May 2006. Museum Director Monja Büdke congratulated the family, presented a gift voucher for the museum shop, and invited the family to lunch in the museum restaurant.
“We are delighted that a family from Stuttgart picked the nine millionth ticket to the Mercedes-Benz Museum. We are keen to appeal to guests from Stuttgart and the region with an interesting and varied programme”, says Museum Director Monja Büdke. “My young daughter is already looking forward to the big Children’s and Family Day on 8 July at the end of the Mercedes-Benz Summer Concert Series – and my boss can hardly wait for the big special exhibition ‘125 Years of VfB’ to commemorate the football club’s anniversary starting in September”.
