A fantastic place to visit if you find yourself in Munich. This is a trip of two halves, with the Modern museum/ car showroom on one side, and the historical Museum on the other side of a purpose-built bridge that connects the two. The historical Museum itself is inexpensive, costing only €10 to enter for which you are allowed 5 hrs time in the museum. It is filled with BMW's from the very early 1870s right up to the present day, as well as a selection of artwork, engines and other pieces of BMW trivia. Whilst the layout of the museum can be difficult to follow, and you sometimes find yourself lost amongst the exhibits, it is never dull and there is plenty to see. Near the exit you find Elvis Presley's own BMW with it's only exhibit. Overall, a recommended viewing if you have the time. Certainly a good way to spend an afternoon.
It's a wonderful place to visit in Munich Germany, especially if you are an automobile aficionado. Spectacular display of evolution of BMW as an automobile giant. Right from the initial models of BMW, till the revolutionary i8, it has every model displayed with the details. Also it houses the bikes that are/were manufactured by BMW. The engines used for the airplanes used during WWII is also displayed. BTW the logo of BMW is inspired from the propellers of an airplane. It also houses Rolls Royce cars, yes, BMW owns Rolls Royce now. Don't miss going to concept cars lounge of Rolls Royce at the exit. And ensure you have a photograph clicked with the i8, and the photograph will be published on Facebook by BMW.
An outstanding museum - the displays are spectacular with very good descriptions. The BMW museum was cool with all of it's new technology and modern design. Everything was eye appealing. All of the cars and bikes were in pristine condition. All of the displays were bold and readable in English and German which was nice. Some of the cars were gorgeous and each of the rooms were completely different and it was fun walking through The technologies are top-notch
Very interesting. Lots of history of car development. It was nice to see BMWs from history. The building is slick and well designed. There are certain areas where, if you have a stroller, you have to lift it up or down stairs. May be there was a lift, which we couldn't find. Over all well worth a visit if you are in Munich.
Amazing place to visit. You can find mostly all the BMW cars and motorbikes from 30s until nowadays. Interesting innovation area and engines room as well. If you are a lover of cars & motorbikes, you'd better pay a visit there.
A great museum that displays the history of the car industry and the company. A great educational place for family and pupils. There is a booth close the the entrance that offers programs for young kid (5-18). If you fill in the form with several questions during or after the visit, a bag of souvenirs will be given as a reward. Very sweet. Thank you for the great experience.
BMW museum is the coolest thing ever! It is huge and you get to know the car history. You ccan see the old as well as the new car models. The museum is very interactive and very hi-tech. You will be required to walk quite a lot so wear comfortable shoes!
Completely awesome experience and a total bargain for students. The museum is fun even for people who aren’t car enthusiasts since the exhibits are highly interactive and provide plenty of information. A guided tour would probably be the best way to fully experience it, but it’s still very fun even without a guide. Best part is how modern and artistic the museum is. It puts most contemporary art museums to shame! Give yourself at least two hours to see the whole place, it’s packed with information and having to rush can have you leaving feeling like you missed something. It’s best to go on a weekday in the later afternoon about 2-3 hours before it closes or early in the day.
Very informative museum, has many BMW vehicles on display from their first models up to concept cars. They have guided tours, souvenir shop, and cafe and also offer activities for children. They lose a star because if you come with a bag you have to pay 1€ for a locker and in general the place feels like a big BMW commercial which is to be expected, but it makes you feel like BMW invented the modern car.
Amazing museum for car lovers and even those who don’t love cars!?! The museum building is futuristic and architecturally beautiful! The displays tell an interesting story of BMW’s history through the use of stunning visuals and sounds. The inner scientist in people will enjoy the information and interactive components of the museum!
Wonderful museum about cars and a detailed step by step on the BMW's history. You can get there by metro, by bus and by car, no transportation problem get into. There's also a complete space, to get information, to rest and have a lunch. The gift shop is not so useful but ok. You can buy the ticket by credit card but you can't pay the lunch by credit cards. Recommend visit. After this go to BMW Welt on the next corner.
Great museum but ruined by the fact they nit-pick what bags can go in. Saw a ton of people going in with much bigger bags than me, but I was stopped and told to check my small bag because of how I was wearing it. Then after paying money to check (which you do get back later), no one was stopping anyone from going in with bags. Checking bags is fine but please be consistent if you're going to make people do it (specially with purses that I needed to carry some things in). Either make everyone or no one.
This is probably the worst designed museum in Germany. Constantly led into dead ends and having to walk back against traffic, no real clear or linear path to take through the exhibits. They make you climb 5 stories in a corkscrew ramp, and then offer an escalator down? How about to doing that the other way around? After visiting both the fantastic Mercedes and Porsche museums in Stuttgart, this left me very under-whelmed.
