Hundreds of thousands of people visit BMW's four-cilinder BMW tower and the bowl-shaped museum next to it each year. The museum showcases the technical development of cars and motorcycles and also has some exhibits about the history of the company. Many old cars and motorcycles are on display along a spiral ramp that curls along the inside of the bowl-shaped building.
Thoroughly enjoyed this "must do" guided tour of the BMW Museum in Munich. Arrived to explore the future of BMW in the Bowl Building. Then rested at M1 Bistro on the terrace before the guided tour started. The guided tour is very informative and relaxing in the new 3-storey building and covers history of motorcycles, aircraft engines and cars, including 2 cars used in James Bond films. Several years from design to production and I now appreciate how much effort BMW apply to maintaining their exemplary reputation. I would also like to thank our guide for a job well done and there was time after the guided tour to revisit and take photos.

One of the world's largest science museums, visitors can to this famous institution can easily get lost among the endless floors of interesting exhibits, including a fascinating exhibit on mining.
This is the best museum I have ever visited, and I have been to many museums all over the world. It is massive, each section is huge and so detailed that you could literally get lost inside. We had 4.5 hours to spend here, which was nowhere near enough because we had to rush through in order to see everything (and we still had to skip loads of stuff). If I had known the museum was so vast I would have come a day earlier when I had the whole day free. Every section was big and full of things to see. The ship section had early diving suits, big ship models, a cut open submarine (the toilet was next to the missile!!), and a room that was made to look like you were on the deck of a cruise liner! There was actual equipment from ships that you can fiddle with, including a big life ring with trousers. There were detailed drawings of how ships are designed, with models of the different designs in a big tank that you can test out to see how they float and move. There was a room showing how different woods are chosen for ship building. It was so amazing and I don't even like ships! And that was just part of the basement! The best sections for us were the physics section, which had loads and loads of hands-on experiments to play with (my kids refused to leave!) and also the amazing mining section. I have been down two mines before, where they built museums around the mines and take people down to part of the mines to show you what it's like. I was shocked that in the Deutsche Museum they actually did the opposite, they made a mine in a museum! It was just like being in a real mine, the smells and the feel of the wind were exactly as I felt when I was down a real mine. Absolutely amazing! For us this museum was the highlight of our entire trip to Munich, we could have happily spent days in here. Instead of just using drawings to show you how things worked, this museum contains the actual machines and equipment that is used. (I now know how they used to drill the long hole into the centre of a cannon, using horsepower and gravity!) Brilliant, a must-see! I feel we must return to Munich in the future just to visit this museum!

The Stadtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus was established in the former residence of the artist Franz von Lenbach and is most known for its world-class and unique collection of works by the artists of The Blue Rider, such as Franz Marc, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee and Gabriele Munter, accented by eminent works of the Art Nouveau and New Objectivity, the art of the 19th century as well as international contemporary art.
I really enjoyed this museum as it had a great collection of German art from the 20th century. It gives a nice overview of art movements and artist originating in Munich and how they influenced global art. The day I went wasn’t too crowded, and I had some galleries to myself. The museum is spacious but not too large - in other words it’s not overwhelming and you won’t feel rushed to see it all. I’d recommend a few hours to see everything.

A wonderful exhibit of the latest and newest models of cars of different colours.There were several cafes where you could rest for a moment.But there was also a BMW brand gift shop for every age. A highly recommended visit.

The Residenz visit exceeded our expectations. It is well worth it to get the combined ticket to the museum, palace, treasury and Cuvillies Theatre. You are also able to photos without a flash.

Why do people moan about visiting a museum when they aren’t interested in the history, beats me. So to all those people who moan about being ripped off or the staff not speaking English (which they do by the way) etc, go on the web site and everything you need to know is written in black and white, ‘O’ and in English. The cost to get in is €3 which includes the Audio guide, free for school kids, Military and Emergency Services etc, so what’s to moan about..... This is the 3rd time I’ve been here, the Bunker System was great, the new museum being built, due to be open in 2 years will be brilliant. So at the moment it is a bit cramped but that’ll all be rectified come 2021 ‘ish’...... Ps if you want to moan about what’s exhibited and written then write to these people instead of moaning at the staff..... (A permanent exhibition on the history of Obersalzberg and the Nazi dictatorship by the Leibniz Institute for Contemporary History)......

The Deutsches Museum presents another important part of its collections at Oberschleissheim Airfield in the north of Munich, close to the old Bavarian palace buildings. The airfield and its historic buildings were constructed between 1912 and 1919 by the Königlich-Bayerische Fliegertruppen (Royal Bavarian Flying Corps). In the early 1990s the historic maintenance hangar was restored and enlarged with a new exhibition hall and a restoration workshop. The Flugwerft Schleissheim complements the big aerospace exhibitions in the main museum in Munich.
What a great collection to be found just a few kilometers from Munich city centre. The exhibits range from the earliest gliders to some of the modern, iconic combat aircraft such as the Tornado and the Typhoon. Of particular interest is the VFW-614 which was used to develop FBW systems including for the A380 as well as the X31 used to test thrust vectoring.

BMW Welt is the company's experience and automobile collection centre. It features fascinating, futuristic architecture and hosts a wide range of exhibitions and events. One unique area is the section dedicated to the personalised handover of models of the BMW brand. As of the fifth anniversary of BMW Welt in October 2012 you can discover not just the BMW brand and BMW Motorrad but also the subbrands BMW i and BMW M as well as the BMW Group and its other brands MINI and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, each with their own world of experience.
If you like cars, and especially new BMWs, this is a must visit, there are all the new models on display from all the BMW companies (BMW, Mini, Rolls Royce) in an amazing building.
