Porsche Museum Opens 31st January, 2009
10th December, 2008
In the new Porsche Museum the final preparations are being made for the opening on 31st January, 2009. At last,
now that the scaffolding has been removed, it is possible to see to the full extent the bold architecture of the
building at the head office premises of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG in Zuffenhausen, Germany: The 5,600 square
metres of exhibition space are supported on just three so-called cores of reinforced concrete – hence just seeming
to hover in space. Inside the building the majority of approximately 80 exhibits are already in place.
In the other areas of the new building – amongst them the museum workshops, the museum shop, the Porsche archive,
an exclusive restaurant, a bistro and the capacious event areas – a team of experts are busy with the finishing
touches. Three days after the ceremonial opening, which takes place on Wednesday, 28th January 2009, the doors of
the new Porsche Museum will be flung open to welcome the first visitors. On a daily basis, apart from Mondays, the
exhibition can be viewed for an admission price of eight Euros. Children up to the age of 14 get free admission
when accompanied by an adult.
The restaurant on the second floor – which has both a view through the glass facade onto the Porscheplatz as well
as through the glass partition into the exhibition itself – has its own separate entrance and is also open at hours
different from those of the museum itself. With the new museum and its range of catering facilities additional
capacity for conferences, company and private events in exceptional surroundings will come into being.
