19th May 2016. The Mercedes-Benz Museum turned 10 years. On Wednesday, 18th May 2016 Chris and Simon were invited to celebrate its 10th Birthday at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart and were able to stay the night at the museum sleeping in a V-Class Marco Polo.
I arrived at the Mercedes-Benz Museum at 3 pm.

At 4 o’clock am. we went sleeping for some hours, before going to the very first Pre-work party in the Mercedes-Benz Museum. We enjoyed the night in the Marco Polo. There is enough space inside and it is very comfortable to sleep downstairs, as well as upstairs. Simon was sleeping upstairs, the only problem is, that it can be a bit loud over there, when some trucks passing by on the A-Road near the museum. To some up, it was a nice experiencsleepingng in the Marco Polo, we enjoyed it, although we just slept there for some hours. We are planning to experience the whole Marco Polo for a longer time during a road trip. Hope we are able to test this vehicle soon! Then we will tell you more about it.
Early in the morning, at 5 o’clock am. the Pre-work Party has been started. A DJ played some Mixed Music, and everyone was welcome to join listening to some music, while enjoying breakfast.
During the whole day we were interviewed and filmed by the television team from ‘SWR Fernsehen’. So here is a little TV report with me (Chris) and Simon living the #sternbloggerlifestyle during the event ‘Night at the museum’ together with the blogger Florian Junk.
