The Porsche Museum on the road around the world,” visitors will have the opportunity to see how the museum coordinates vehicle trips, appearances by celebrity drivers and preparing tours, in addition to some of the strategic and logistical challenges the museum encounters.

Held at the Porsche headquarters in Zuffenhausen, the exhibit will be on display through April 23, 2017.
