  • A must-see while in Munich and if you love cars, of course. You can follow most part of automobile history by visiting the BMW Museum, practically you can watch almost the entire car range produced by...  more »
  • As expected was the Museum very well attended this Saturday morning. Nevertheless, we could see everything alone and discover. BMW here is his story, which is well worth a visit. There are many engines to see but also many complete vehicles. The presentation of the content succeeded particularly in my view. Motion detector play a text, movie, or sound, when it comes in the vicinity of the exhibit are installed everywhere. All contents are available both in English and in German. The paths through the Museum are a bit confusing and little signs. Therefore, I have deducted a point. Still a great Museum.

  • Fun place to visit on a weekend. It has so much to offer. Being an automobile enthusiast, this place really is fun to learn about automobile history. BMW being the pioneers of automobile history, they have huge collection of all kinds of vehicles, engines and technology presented in the museum. The vintage cars are eye grabbers for me. The history behind them is also worth reading and are available with every vehicle that's on display. Finally, it's a cool place to take your kids and have fun on a weekend😀
  • Entry costs 10 Euros. Not too steep but based on what you get. I would suggest that you go only if you really like cars, history and BMW. In this case you cant loose much. However if these things do not excite you then you can probably skip it. The layout is a bit weird and sometimes you have to go back. I visited technical museums which are much better. You have minimum interaction with things. The things I liked were the spots and the benches which start to speak to you if you stand/ sit on them.
  • It is an exhibition of BMW from the beginning of its time and shows all the history in different stages. The development history of all various parts are separately shown. Here you can expect to see the first engines to the latest models. It is a wonderful experience generally for people who are interested in engineering and specifically for car lovers. The technology here is not only limited to cars but also to airplanes, motorbikes, boats, etc.
  • The nearest U station is Olympiazentrum, perfect place to spend 2-3 hours if you are into cars & bikes. The entry fee per person is euro 10. The museum shows the early days of BMW and how it evolved into one of the most innovative companies post WWII. It has almost all major car models on display but does lack on making it more interactive, as a automobile lover one would expect it to be more interactive.
  • Awesome museum using modern technology to provide its visitors with information on the BMW’s history, making and so on. Definitely worth a visit when in Munich. Lots of interesting stuff in the exhibitions for any car enthusiast, and anyone wishing to get acquainted with automobile industry.
