  • There are many nice cars and bikes from old ones till modern, and even a few concept cars that we will not see on the streets. There are a few engines exposed from various sport cars. Plus a bit of history. And that's it. I cannot say what exactly I was expecting more, but I thought it would be much more impressive. Well, may be I wanted to have the ability not just to take a look at the past, but also have a chance to know lots of details about the present, look and sit inside every type of latest BMW. I wanted to have interactive installations. I wanted to try something on the wheels, even if it would be just a toy. And of course I wanted to get much more futuristic impressions, like what the car is going to look like in ten years, fifty years, hundred years... how designers were seeing that in the past. I wanted to see the intention of the company and the goals. I wanted to visit this place and get out with the confidence that BMW is the greatest company that builds best cars in the world. But that didn't happen. You can do more for people coming to you, BMW!
  • Home of BMW. Some modern building with German architecture and style. The history of BMW under one roof. Amazing place. Some displays are animated which add flare the the place. So well preserved cars and bikes ... even airplane engines all BMW. To see some of my favorite car from my youth in perfect condition takes you back in time where you can remember your past.
  • Went here on family vacation to satisfy my son's interest. We took the guided tour and were given audio sets to hear the guide's information. Overall it was very interesting about BMW's history as a manufacturer and its future in electric cars as well as its commitment to the environment. There was a nice selection of past and present cars/motorcycles. They also had a Art car for viewing. The cafe had a nice selection of snacks, coffee, and of course beer. I would recommend the guided tour if you decide to visit.
  • Great place for BMW lovers. There is the whole history of BMW from beginning to end. There is an agent 007 car (BMW Z3). Suitable for both children and the elderly. But I liked BMW Welt more than the BMW Museum because you can get in and touch cars there.
  • It's not a museum, it's more like a walk through the styles and engineering of BMW. There are a couple of one of vehicles from the 1930's, there are also s couple of futuristic design vehicles. All this for €10 each is a good couple of hours motoring experience. We enjoyed ourselves, there was a nice coffee and gift shop. You can also visit FREE BMW World over the road which is equally enjoyable and very interesting. It's a great visit especially as its next to the Olympic stadium.
