For one day only.
After being shut down for eight weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, is finally opening its doors to the public again with new safety measures in place to protect workers and visitors. The Porsche Museum houses some of the rarest and most historically important Porsche cars ever built, including the oldest Porsche 911 and historic race cars such as the iconic Porsche 917. Put simply, it's a Porsche fan's paradise.
To give Porsche enthusiasts who are still stuck at home or unable to travel to the museum some respite, Porsche will be hosting a free digital live tour of the incredible museum over on the company's @porsche.museum Instagram page on Sunday, May 17.
"Digital diversity is more important than ever in times like these, where travel is a greater challenge than ever before", said Achim Stejskal, Head of Heritage and Porsche Museum. "We have been consistently driving forward the expansion of digital offerings not just since the corona crisis, but for years. We have committed ourselves to the 'Mission Future Heritage'. We would like to use modern channels to demonstrate the heritage and future of the brand, not just at our site in Zuffenhausen, but beyond the museum as well."
Two guides will show visitors for one hour each in German and English around the exhibition, which features more than 80 cars spanning over 5,600 square meters. They will look at special exhibits and offer an insight into the company history. Rare prototypes, small exhibits, racing cars, and series production cars will be shown during the live tours. The German tour will be hosted on Instagram at 18:30 local time outside of regular opening times, while the second English tour will start midnight CEST (18:00 ET).
The tours will also be recorded in Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese, Croatian, Romanian, Spanish, Portuguese and Turkish, and will be available on Porsche News TV.
