Germany: Touching the Dream at BMW Museum

Munich, September 2011




I'm not an automotive geek so I wasn't too enthusiastic about visiting BMW museum in Munich. "What's so interesting about a museum full of cars anyway?" The thought was crossing on my mind while on the way to the museum. It's true that I started driving a car and got my first driving license when I was 13 years old (yeah, it's quite common in my country :p). But I've never driven any BMW cars before. Only some affordable Japanese brand cars. And I've never really been too keen on learning the trends nor latest car models, etc.

Anyway my mood lit up as soon as I reached the silver futuristic building, "Whoa! The architecture looks kinda cool!". And the interior is even more impressive. It felt like entering an ultra modern world from another century. 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.

I started to enjoy exploring all of the 25 exhibition areas with many kind of vehicles to admire at. I found myself to be more interested mostly in those vintage vehicles, an old soul I am. I love how they display all the vehicles with no guardrail. You could touch and take picture next to the vehicles. I overheard one of the staff was saying something like "Children will be our (BMW) future customer , so they must allow to touch their dream". How lovely, right ?

And since I'm not an expert in explaining about car models and details, I'll leave these pictures below caption less. Which one is your favourite car ?









I want this car ! :D

  11. When I went to Munich in 2007 the BMW Welt was still under construction. So I only visited the bowl-shaped old museum right next to it. I would love to go back to Munich one day to explore the new museum though.
