  • Futuristic structure, which attracts already from the outside! If you're going to go visit, considered at least 3 hours to sightsee at your leisure. Retraces the entire industrial history of BMW, in a way not at all boring or mundane, but indeed very challenging and addictive. Nice is the food court inside (M1 Café Bar) and the gift shop. Also recommended is a visit to the "BMW Welt" which is opposite, and accessible via a pedestrian bridge connecting the two buildings. Here you will find exposed other cars and bikes, but all of the latest generation.

  • I'm really a real car fan, but I was somewhat disappointed by the BMW Museum. Expect now more than merely putting out old and new BMW models from a good Museum. The Museum has no clear line, either historical or otherwise. Everything seems somehow cobbled together. Too bad, it's better.

  • BMW world is free entry and is open until midnight, but recommend you visit in the daytime so you can get to the museum too (€10 entry). Loads to see and can easily make a day of it. Guided tours need...  more »

  • 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.
