“The Proper Prancing Horse of Sports Cars”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Stuttgart's name derives from the Old High German for brood mare and compound, it being the site of the old Imperial stud. Porsche adopted a version of the City Badge for their marque - a prancing black horse on a yellow ground. (Other makes of Sports Cars with prancing horses on their badge, ask only where that comes from).
When I visited the Porsche Museum ( over a year ago) it was just about completed after remodeling and at that time had to be accessed across a busy road - which seemed appropriate - and the range of models and types was , for me, rather lacking. (I couldn't find a 924 S) and they seemed to be keen on showing the appalling Boxter (which should be consigned to history in my biased opinion).
I think by now it is a more attractive approach and the layout and range will have improved. When I next visit I hope the premises will do justice to the marque.
Even so any Porsche enthusiast would want to enjoy.

“Race cars and more”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The Porsche Museum offers a nice selection of prototype cars, engines, and races cars in a very unique building. There are also few service vehicles and even a Harley-Davidson motorcycle (that was a partnership between the two companies 10 years ago). The 2 and a half floors of exhibits takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half to see (depending on how much reading you do). The audio guide (included in the admission price) provides information on about a quarter of the exhibits. All of the displays are labeled in German and English.

Admission (without any discounts) was 8E/person in Mar 2013.

After visiting the Mercedes Museum, the BMW Museum (in Munich), and the Porsche Museum; I'd rank them in that order.

The porsche museum is looking at porsche cars through history. It was good to see the development of cars but not the business.

“Interesting museum and exceptional restaurant”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

First of all we parked our car in the underground parking by the restaurant and, as we had lunch there, we had 5€ free parking bonus.The Ferdinand Porsche collection is of course smaller than the Mercedes but you can see 80 different models and prototypes and , at the ground floor cafe' bar, through the glass, you can see the restauration workshop with customers'cars waiting to be prepared for a race.
The architecture design of the building is very impressive and the collection really complete. Don't miss the gourmet Christophorus restaurant and his cigar bar. From your table (with fresh tulips and a small model of a different Porsche) you can see the factory. They have a fantastic grill menu (striploin, filet mignon, rib eye or surf and turf), with delicacy as roasted fillet of trout with orange and fennel salad or lobster with herb fondue salad of roots vegetable and vanilla. Good choice of wines by the glass . Ask your espresso to be served in the cigar bar. In front of the museum, at the other side of the road, there is a design shop with other race jackets, caps, memorabilia, bags, trolleys, pens and...in the next door there is a huge showroom where you can book a test drive before ordering your next car....Dreaming is free of charge.
