BMW Museum

Am Olympiapark 2, Munich

4.5

The BMW museum was founded in 1973 as one of the first brand museums ever. The museum keeps the history of the BMW’s technical development to the company’s history under one roof. The entrance of the building is on the ground floor and has two parts reception and a cloakroom. About 125 of the famous expensive brands are shown to the public. Annually 250,000 visitors come here to see a great variety of techno things. Cars, motorcycles, aircraft and different engines from new and old times are shown to the public. The museum gives deep information to those, who are interested in technology, cars, drive and speed. As the museum provides information not only in German but also English, the info gaining becomes easier. So the only thing that the visitors need is to pay €10 for a tour without guide and €13 for a guided tour. The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday 10:15 am to 16:30. The techno museum is closed on Mondays and from December 24 to January 1.

    Wow. Beyond what I expected. What a great way to spend in Munich. I'm not a car guy but found myself truly interested in the exhibits. The museum is done with plants of taste, class, and great design. The spirit of BMW was on full display. Price 10 EUR per person. Affordable and kid friendly. Highly recommended.

    A very nice museum that depicts the history of this world renowned brand. If you're a BMW fan, you'd be thrilled to meet many of your “friends” here. The museum showcased not only past models, but also some concept cars. For those who are not familiar with BMW cars, this museum is still worth visiting. The design of the museum itself is very beautiful. The spiral walkway, the use of lighting inside its galleries, the view of the neighboring BMW WELT from the cafe, and of the many shiny cars inside the museum will certainly please your eyes. And do book a guided tour. The guide I followed gave me plenty of information about the interesting history of the company and the stories behind many cars, including those owned by celebrities such as Elvis Presley.

    When coming TO Munich, the BMW World is often a must see. However many visitors skip the BMW museum, which is a pity. The whole history of BMW is told. In a really. Interesting way. And all of the cars you want to see are there. There is a great self guided tour by a smartphone app. If you are into German cars, don't miss it.

    I've been to Mercedes & Porsche museums too. BMW museum fails to capture the excitement like how I felt in other 2. But still it is a must vist place for any auto enthusiast. There were very few classic/vintage cars on display. Neither in museum nor in BMW welt, one cannot experience the car in hand. Visitors are not allowed to be inside of cars even at BMW welt. Some of the exhibits are kept behind pillars obstructing the complete neat view of the car. 3 stars for their impressive collection and presentation of their vintage bikes & aviation history.

    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.

    Amazing display of vehicles & motorcycles in an equally amazing building. I'm not a BMW fanatic but I could have stayed for days reading everything about each exhibit. Will be flying out to Munich to take more time over my next visit and hopefully do the factory tour for which you have to book months in advance. Go there now!

    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!

    Really well though out, has an area for motors, for design, for advertising, for formula 1, for their best sellers and for their company history. Last but not least showcases Elvis BMW!

    One of the most attractive place in Munich. Such an awesome boys playground! Interactive schemes of engines, disassembled jet engine, and so one. Plan at least 3 hours. Download official museum app!

    Very nice display of vehicles but a bit smaller compared to some other similar museums (although same entrance fee). Two to three hours should be enough to check it all out.
