    Mission accomplished – The whole world has visited the Museum.

    The Mercedes-Benz Museum completes its map of visitors: people from all 193 member states of the United Nations visited the museum.

Visitors from all 193 states.

On Wednesday, 22 August 2018, Monja Büdke, member of the board of management, welcomed four very special visitors to the Mercedes-Benz Museum: Melissa Khan, Faraaz Munshi and Wagar Sahid from Guyana and Cecil Rawlins from St Kitts and Nevis represented the two final countries that had been missing from the museum’s statistics. “Their visit completes our map of museum visitors from all 193 member states of the United Nations”, stated a delighted Ms Büdke.

The campaign proved very successful.

Since February 2017 the Mercedes-Benz Museum had been running a campaign specifically aimed at visitors from the seven countries which were not yet represented in the official visitor statistics: Benin, Botswana, Guyana, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, St Kitts and Nevis as well as Suriname. The campaign proved very successful. Visitors from five of the countries came to explore the Mercedes-Benz Museum in 2017.


The proportion of international visitors has continued to rise.

On 22 August 2018 the visitors from Guyana and from St Kitts and Nevis filled in the final blanks. The museum flew the two countries’ flags to mark their visit. After being welcomed by Ms Büdke, the visitors explored the museum and were then invited to the museum restaurant. The Mercedes-Benz Museum uses regular surveys to collect information about where its visitors come from.


Since the museum reopened in 2006, the proportion of international visitors has continued to rise steadily. Last year, figures reached a new high of 60 percent. After Germany, China was once again the next top country of origin with more than ten percent, followed by the US, France and Switzerland.
