The exhibits of the museum are BMW cars and motorcycles, which created throughout the history of this brand.
A separate building of the BMW Museum erected for the beginning of the 1972 Olympic Games, held in Munich.
From 2004 to mid-2008, the museum was under reconstruction, at which time some of the exhibits were available at the exhibition area of the complex. The new concept for the BMW Museum was developed based on the success and experience of the existing museum. A new emphasis placed on highlighting the importance of the BMW Museum as a brand museum.
The main task was to expand the space: the original exhibition area of 1000 square meters turned into 5000 square meters, which housed about 120 exhibits.
The concept referred to an idea dreamed of by the architect Professor Karl Schwanzer, the creator of the BMW Museum in 1973. He defined the internal structure of a circular building as an extension of a road in an enclosed space.
The permanent exposition of the museum divided into seven exhibition halls - "houses": the House of Design, the House of the Company, the House of Motorcycle, the House of Technologies, the House of Motor Sports, the House of the Brand and the House of Series.
The halls of the museum are distinguished by technical equipment and modern design, as well as interactive richness. Futuristic in terms of architecture, the BMW Museum building is currently the tallest in Munich (its height is 40 meters).
The BMW Museum receives approximately 250,000 visitors annually, thus maintaining the position of Munich's third most popular museum.
The museum has a shop that offers an exclusive range of lifestyle products such as caps and T-shirts, as well as miniatures of historic BMW cars and a special collection of BMW Art Car.
The Museum Shop also offers a wide selection of popular science books on BMW cars, motorcycles and aircraft engines, and literature on contemporary architecture and design related to BMW. Here you can also find postcards with historical motives and the latest photographs of classic cars.

The route from the airport is quite clear and budgetary: you can get there by public transport and with just one change. To do this, you need to take a city train from the airport (S1 or S8), which goes to the central square - Marienplatz. After that, you need to change to the square on the metro (line U3) and get to the Olympiazentrum station.
From the metro to the BMW Welt, you only have to walk about 150 meters. And the BMW Museum itself is located across the street from it.
