Mercedes-Benz Museum

I'm not into Mercedes-Benz cars so the Mercedes Museum could never hold the same fascination for me as the Porsche Museum down the road .However it is an amazing museum.The architecture and the presentation in every detail is superb.It is very strong statement about the brand and the three pointed star.
I went to the previous M-B Museum a few years ago and although it was interesting the history was sanitised and it was a case of "don't mention the war". Now the reverse is true and they are totally transparent about what happened to the company and the country in the 1930's and 1940's.In fact a visit to the museum provides an interesting and objective presentation of the social history of Germany through the 20th century.
The display of the silver arrows racing cars is superb and even the cafe/restaurant is excellent .It is no wonder that the museum is one of Germany's top tourist attractions.
