In order to celebrate the 50 Years of the iconic Porsche 911 there is a special anniversary exhibition at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, open from June 4 until September 29. Besides a special exhibition all about the 911, with more than 40 Porsche exhibited, there are also some anniversary promotions for museum visitors and 911 drivers:
All 911 drivers plus one accompanying person, upon presentation of the vehicle registration at the box office of the Porsche Museum, have free admission from June 4 to September 29, 2013. The Porsche Museum also foregoes any admission price for visitors who have been born in 1963 and can prove it by presenting their ID.
Holiday programme for children
Moreover, in collaboration with the Stuttgart Police Department, the Porsche Museum is organising a free summer holiday programme for girls and boys five years old and up. Ten interactive stations await the car drivers of tomorrow from August 24 to September 8, 2013, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily (except Monday). Alongside a bicycle round course on the roof terrace of the Porsche Museum, our little visitors can solve exciting puzzles and complete assignments that all have to do with the 911. The children may also slip into a racing suit and sit behind the steering wheel of a Porsche. Free tours for children are provided during this time from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The museum shop will have a selection of special 911 items for sale: The in-house publishers “Edition Porsche Museum” is putting out a book entitled “911x911” in the anniversary year of the Eleven; it is available in five languages in the shop of the Porsche Museum and costs 39.90 euro. A Bordeaux with the fine-sounding name of “Rouge Pérou” has been bottled exclusively for the Porsche Museum and can be had there for 29.00 euro. The designation of “Rosso Bordeaux” has been taken from the 911 colour table – in French, it's “Rouge Pérou.” Alongside small items like 911 sheet-metal cards and a cutting board with the design of the 911 silhouette, the museum keeps vehicle miniatures for model car fans on hand. Posters depicting 50 production cars and race cars (for 19.00 euro each) round off the anniversary range of offers.
Our visitors restaurant “Boxenstopp,” located in the lounge, is also serving special 911 dishes. They range from the “Targa Florio Antipasti Plate” for 9.11 euro to a 911 birthday hamburger for 9.97 euro to the “Turbo Currywurst” for 9.64 euro. The opening hours of the “Boxenstopp” are 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from Tuesday to Sunday. It can be accessed without an admission ticket.
The Porsche Museum is open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday.
The admission fee is eight euro for adults. Reduced price tickets cost four euro.
