Spread across an area of 10.000 m2, with a total exhibition space of around 5.000 m2, the BMW car museum in Munich attracts thousands of visitors each year. While being a car enthusiast certainly helps when visiting the museum, it is not a necessity as we discovered. The “bowl” shaped museum is just across the street from the BMW car showroom (BMW welt) and is walking distance from the Olympic Park.
This Munich museum has dedicated sections showcasing motorbikes, racing cars and touring cars including the latest car models. With a lot of interactive displays, learning about the design process and history of the organisation is fun.
The concept section of the museum particularly succeeds in engaging with the visitors where in several models depicting the idea and innovation phase of the BMW car manufacturing are displayed.
The museum is open on Tue-Sun from 10:00 to 18:00, the entry is priced at â‚¬12. Reduced entry tickets are available for family, students and groups.
