Mercedes-Benz Museum In Stuttgart

I just read this article on the Mercedes Museum in Stuttgart, talks about how Benz and Daimler invented the car and has some great pics of cars such as the 300SL Gullwing. I love this stuff, here's the link if you're interested, and below the article is Mercedes' video on the history of the automobile.

Is history between 1939 and 1945 "missing" by any chance?

I visited the MB Museum in May 2007, and it was very impressive. You take a lift to the top, and the first thing you see is a life size horse and hear 'horsey' noises. A subtle reminder they were around at the start of the horseless carriage.
As you walk down and around the long ramp, there are pictures and text of what was happening in the world at the time these car models were made. A fascinating history lesson. And they do mention the war!
I also visited the Sindelfingen car assembly plant, and in the visitors' area is a display showing the growth of the factory over the years (centuries?), the reduction caused by the Allied bombing campaign, and the post war growth.
And I visited the Unterturkheim engine plant, although I only had time for the German language tour.
Sorry no photos - forbidden! :-)

Ich lach mit dir! In what years were Hitler's Mercedes made?

I did the tour of that museum (free because I am a MBCA member!) in April 2008 and it is very good. They do not skip over the war period; in fact there is some pointy material about it on the wall in a couple of display cabinets. Highly recommended!
