The Porsche Museum is opening its doors and inviting everyone to a free visit to the 43rd International Museum Day on Sunday, May 17 which will also be live via Instagram.
You may have read earlier that the Museum in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen reopened its doors once again on Tuesday 12 May with strict distancing measures being implemented by organisers for safety reasons.
In keeping with this year’s motto “The Museum for All – Museums for Diversity and Inclusion”, digital live tours will be live-streamed on porsche.museum tommorrow.
You can participate from anywhere in the world and experience how Porsche transports the ideas and values of its brand from the past into the future. The museum is home to more than 80 vehicles within its impressive 5,600 square meter exhibition area and had been closed to the public since March 14 due to the recent coronavirus outbreak.
Achim Stejskal, Head of Heritage and Porsche Museum said:
“In times like these, when travelling is a particularly big challenge, digital diversity is more important than ever.
“We have not been consistently pushing ahead with expanding digital offerings since the corona crisis, but for years. We are committed to the ‘Mission Future Heritage’. We want to use modern channels not only at the Zuffenhausen site to illustrate the origin and future of the brand but also outside of the museum.”
On the International Museum Day, two guides will head the exhibition in both German and English for one hour, where they will look at special exhibits and give an insight into the company’s historic timeline.

The digital live tour will include prototypes, small exhibits, racing and production vehicles. The German-speaking tour, which can be viewed on Instagram, starts at 6.30 pm, the English tour at 12 am (CEST). The dates are deliberately outside the regular opening times – according to the motto “The Museum for All”.
Tours will also be recorded in the following languages and will be available on Porsche News TV from Sunday: Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese, Turkish, Croatian, Romanian, Spanish and Portuguese.
“We have a native speaker for each of these languages in the Museum. We would like to thank our fans all over the world with the videos that show the live character of a tour and bring them a piece of the Porsche Museum home.”
