The BMW Museum
is located near the Olympiapark
in Munich and was established in 1972 shortly before the Summer Olympics opened. It deals with the history of the automobile manufacturer BMW. In connection with the construction of the BMW Welt, directly opposite the museum, it was renovated from 2004 to 2008. The museum reopened on June 21, 2008.
The museum shows BMW's technical development throughout the company's history. It contains engines and turbines, aircraft, motorcycles, and vehicles in a plethora of possible variations. In addition to actual models there are futuristic-looking, even conceptual studies from the past 20 years.
BMW World is a multi-functional customer experience and exhibition facility of the BMW AG. In direct proximity to the BMW Headquarters and the Olympiapark, it is designed to present the current products of BMW, to be a distribution center for BMW cars, and to offer an event forum and a conference center.
Designed by architects Coop Himmelblau for BMW Group, the facility was constructed from August 2003 through summer 2007.
