BMW Museum

A must for car lovers

In a building lovingly known as the “Weisswurstkessel” (roughly translated as the “sausage pot”) BMW tells the story of its history as a vehicle manufacturer.

The BMW Museum and its futuristic architecture opened its doors in 1973, shortly after the Summer Olympic Games. It is part of a shared complex with the BMW skyscraper, BMW Welt, and the BMW Group’s home plant in close proximity to the Olympic Park.

In an area of 5000 square metres, around 125 exhibits, including cars, motorbikes and engines, illustrate the company’s 100-year history, tracking milestones in BMW’s design from its roots to present day.

In 2008, the listed museum was expanded with a new flat building to house the permanent exhibition. The historic round building designed by architect Karl Schwanzer is now used for visiting exhibits.

Highlights include the original car from the 1997 James Bond film “Tomorrow Never Dies”, the BMW Isetta, or cars from the BMW Art Car Collection, which has involved some outstanding artists from every corner of the globe since 1975. At least one of these 17 rolling works of art can be seen at the BMW Museum at all times.
