  • If your going to Munich you MUST go to the BMW Museum. First off buy a ticket beforehand so you can skip the line. Very interesting to see the history of this automaker and I really enjoyed...

  • Breathtaking. I saw cars that I never knew existed. From the beginning of BMW to the newest, not yet released. The museum is right next to the BMW Welt, where the next generations are presented. So, if you're in the area I suggest you give them both a visit.
  • A great spot for everyone interested in cars. Professional staff and very well-organized car museum in heart of Munich City. Suitable for a shortstop when visiting Munich. Stylish and well-decorated building. This visit is suitable both for a company of adults on business travel as well as a family visit with best-interested kids. The museum isn't too big so you won't get tired, and especially your kids if you have kids. You will not find all the models there, but you will get many new models. I liked the mix of old cars and prototypes you won't ever meet on the street.
  • Quite honestly 80% of the exhibits are cars we have all seen on the road for the past 2-3 decades. We saw literally just two beautiful classic cars - did BMW not make dozens of such beautiful models ? I own a BMW so am clearly a fan, but was not impressed. Lots of BMW racing models were on show. The museum building is beautifully modern and clean. In comparison the the wonderful Mercedes Museum this only merits 2 stars
  • BMW museum is a very nice museum of Car and Bike lovers. Museum is very beautiful arranged and the entrance is 10 euro. Apart from museum you can go to BMW welt as well. Metro station is quite near. If you really like cars, bike it’s must go to place. You can check entire history and Also look for all the bmw model launched till date.
  • The museum is really not recommended. Compared to the Mercedes-Benz Museum, this museum is more like a private collection, no information for introduction but very much similar display sample. I need to pay more for the ticket to a smaller museum. Compared to the Mercedes Benz Museum, the BMW Museum is more crowded inside and has fewer staff (not even seen one staff after passing the entrance gate). Inside the museum it was very crowded and the climate was depressingly hot and humid. There are no staff in the museum to maintain order, and the crowds make the order chaotic and noisy. The signs in the confusing building are very vague (it can be said that there are basically no signs), and even the lockers are set at the exit, and i didn’t see hint near the entrance, causing most people to carry heavy luggage and the lockers are almost idle. The sanitary conditions in the museum are poor, there is garbage on the ground, and it is not cleaned in time. The use of font colors in English introduction is unreasonable, and the readability is poor, making it difficult to identify. And some introductions are illogical and unintelligible. In addition, some halls use extremely old screens that generate much heat, which can make certain halls even higher temperature, which is very uncomfortable. In short, as a tourist who has visited the Mercedes-Benz Museum, I am very dissatisfied with this museum. In Mercedes-Benz museum, I can feel that the museum wants me to stay longer by creating a comfortable environment (I stayed for 4 hrs in fact) but in BMW museum I can feel it inhospitable, crowds and uncomfortable environment make me to leave ASAP. recommend the museum can limit the tickets sold on each slot and put some staff inside the museum.
