Mercedes-Benz Museum opens its doors

Friday marked the first day of business for the brand new Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. The old museum closed its doors on March 18th after a career as one of the world's most visited corporate museums. The new museum's architecture is based on the design of a double helix. Visitors are taken to the top of the building via a lift and presented with two tour routes that take them down nine stories of Mercedes history and memorabilia. The end of each route is marked by the "Silver Arrows – Races and Records" display, a banked curve that turns into a cylindrical wall to which many record-breaking cars in motorsports history have been affixed.
