Specialty Museum Museum
BMW Museum showcases the carmaker's technical developments during its history and the benefits of modern vehicle design. On this bowl-shaped site, you'll find engines, turbines, aircraft, motorcycles, and many of the company's most famous road vehicles. Also get a look at what the company's engineers have been dreaming up over the last two decades by viewing drawings of their concepts for new vehicles. Tour the museum on your own or take one of several behind-the-scenes tours. Audio guides are available. Consider stopping by the adjacent modern showroom to see the models currently for sale.

  • A very interesting museum, two great buildings where we saw many different cool cars, old and new. I'm not a great fan of these kind of cars-museum but I have to say that it was fine. The old ones wil...  more »

  • There were a wide variety of well done exhibits. It is nice that you can see so much detail of the cars and other mechanisms so closely. The history is well explained. The mobile app is good. Their WiFi is good. The layout is clean, but a bit non-linear. They did not have as much info about engineering as I had hoped.
  • I went to several of the big car museums in Germany, and this one was the best. It's got the best mix of new and old (I know it's a museum, but I don't only want to see cars that are 100 years old), and the exhibits were the coolest. My only complaint is that the English translations of exhibition were printed in silver text on a backlight-silver background, which made them extremely difficult to read. We had to keep moving around to catch the shadows just right so that the letters would become visible.
  • Extremely good cars, special cafe and by the way you DON'T NEED A TICKET TO GO INSIDE, use one of your fingers and place your finger on the sensor and the door will open.TRY THIS AND YOU WILL SUCEED. I promise. 😉Please 'Like' me. Thanks.
  • This place is great! a Munich gem definitely. and in case you were there already, maybe one time there is not enough. They are always updating the exhibitions
  • Go to the left of the ticket desk first even if you are pointed to the right. The right is a spiralling corporate history time tunnel with only a few strong highlights (mostly at the very top; there is a car with "skin"). The left is where all the vehicles, main show halls, and concepts are. We got sent right and we're about to leave disappointed when we caught a glimpse of the other side and wandered over. Had to rush through it. Would be a higher rating if the signage had been better and/or the staff had been more helpful when we asked where all the exhibits were.
