This is a very nice manufacturing plant and would be interesting to everyone who is old enough to understand what is happening. Very clean plant and it is amazing to see modern manufacturing happening. Just make sure that they will be running production and the visitors center is open before you visit.

Absolutely amazing how they coordinate parts to arrive just as the vehicle arrives at the proper place on the assembly line. All ages would appreciate this as a stop for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. just off the Interstate they show you a 21st century faciity. A must stop but call for reservations and in the winter operating hours.

The tour through the plant was interesting and fun. We loved seeing how the Mercedes vehicles are made. This is fun for a family, but kids should be at least in grade school to understand it and not be bored. We would recommend this place!

This is a 3 million square foot assembly facility so it has large scale. Tours are only Tuesday and Thursday in the morning (9-ish) and around noon (12:30-ish). You should call ahead to reserve the time that you want. The website talks about two hours for the tour but the one I went on was about 75 minutes. It is... More

Visiting Mercedes and touring the plant was very interesting. The tour is informative and well organized. The plant is spotless. You will see the entire production line. The only thing better than touring would be to leave there in a new M Class.

It was a good place to visit although the video was long, had to leave before I dozed off. If u actually want to visit the plant you have to schedule your visit ahead of time.. There's also a small charge I think 5 bucks and the only do the plant tours on certain days

Professional tour guides able to answer any question about Mercedes. Didn't realize how clean an auto plant could be.

After visiting the University of Alabama we stopped at the Mercedes Benz visitor center and museum. It is a beautiful new building. The museum takes you through the years starting at the beginning to date. Some of the first cars made are in the museum. Currently they manufacture three models at this location. There is one of the two Mercedes... More

We pulled off to visit on a whim, and are glad we did. The museum isn't as big as I thought it would be, but still well fitted out and professional. It isn't obvious how to take a tour or if one is possible for passersby, so we didn't. Even if you cannot take a tour, the museum itself is... More

The Mercedes Benz visitor center with training center is a very nice building. The factory tour was exciting to see product made into a finish van.
