  • What can we say? Museum. Regular Museum, no more no less. Submitted by very many models of BMW cars and motorcycles. It is interesting to observe the evolution of the brand. In General, once you can see. Of the great distance from the city centre.

  • But also for non BMW-riders very worth it. Very modern design museum where many famous BMW models. We have found it to be very worthwhile.

  • Does any one have the passion of the machines can not visit it. It starts with a tour of the concessionaire to terminate with the Museum. In my opinion is worth a visit!

  • To get to the BMW museum just walk across the bridge from the BMW Welt if you park the car at the BMW Welt or took the underground. The cars, bike and engines are good to look at in detail. My fav is all the classic stuff which some I never seen before. I took about 3 hours to look around and read some of the info but if you read all the info I think it will take over 5 hours. A hit! If you planning to stay there for 1 day to look at every thing I would do this one 1st for about 1 to 2 hours and then the BMW factory after have lunch and last the BMW Museum.
  • If you're interested in the history of one of the most iconic car manufacturers of all time, you won't feel shortchanged after visiting the Museum. I suggest 2 hours for casual visitors and 3-4 hours for enthusiasts. The layout of the place is kinda strange, so try to follow the route suggested in the handout you will receive with the tickets.
  • Loved it! Great displays, brilliant machinery on exhibition. Very comprehensive covering the full history of their bikes and cars and everything in between (saucepans?). Download the app before you and listen to the audio for key exhibits. Take your time, easy to miss displays if you rush thru.
  • Very very very interesting place. As you travel through history of BMW you get many new information that you don't know. A really cool place with tone of things to see. For every recommendation
  • Tha place is right accross the street of BMW Welt. It cost €10 to visit. But it was worth every penny. To get knowledge about the history of BMW.
