  • You can visit the Museum and the BMW dealership is impressive. You can even eat in the restaurant that is inside the dealer.

  • beautiful hotel and the wide range of vehicles, but in my opinion, unclear the policy of exposure. After visiting the museums of Porsche and Mercedes in Stuttgart, I was disappointed with this. In addition to a much higher cost, I noticed a little "Pathos" in the arrangement of means, of course, there's an old line, but without history ... in short, almost confused exposure. After the visit, we tried to rent a BMW for a ride, but also to reserve it was "a bloodbath". You cannot give a guide, booking on behalf of Guy to drive Gaius, then possibly Guy, looking for itself, and then move the Guide to Caio. the website for reservations is pretty gross, and if you do have to book, you cannot do it on mobile, PC, only know this if you are tourists. and of course, there is a pc in the near vicinity, there is the Wifi ...

  • An interesting tour through the world of the automobile. It is impressive how progress is developed again and again in a new age. The BMW models are lovingly maintained and perfect condition, that you prefer wants to take. This museum is no waste of time.

  • 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.
