If you like cars, have a few hours to kill and are in-between Birmingham and Tuscaloosa, this is the place for you! The tour was long but interesting. Didn't know so many students from Univ of Alabama did co-op's here! Really neat to get hands on experience!

We went hoping to take a tour of the factory only to learn they have limited dates/times for tours. We spent about an hour going through the "museum" which has about 10 historic cars and several of the latest models.

Went to visit the plant on a trip with the MSU business students and had a great time. The facility and staff are top class. It was very educational to see how the business runs and learn about how the processes they follow.

A van load of folks from Guntersville, AL arrived at the factory and were divided into two groups. One visited the museum while the other toured the factory. I was more impressed with the tour than the museum. It was interesting to see the SUVs assembled. The route was well marked and the guide was knowledgable and friendly. The tour... More

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.
