“I want a BMW!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

If you were ever interested in seeing how luxury cars are produced, this is the place for you. The BMW tour will really open your eyes. This clean, quiet, and technically advanced plant makes 1,300 cars per day and then shipped to customers in over 130 countries around the world. The idea of trying to organize all of this sophistification is truly amazing.

Our guide, Dagmar, was very information, funny and professional.

The museum, is somewhat small, but nonetheless interesting. The snack bar is nice with reasonably priced foods (I had a german beer and pretzel for $5.00).

There are too many highlights to mention, but for $7.00 entry fee, it was well worth it!

“Well Worth A Visit!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Wow, what a facility. Have driven past it on I-85 for years, but a rainy day while visiting Greenville led us to check this out. They have an interesting museum but the real highlight is definitely the guided tour of the plant ($7 and you must call ahead for a reservation). Be prepared to be blown away! Very futuristic; almost seems like a sci-fi movie set. Wear comfortable shoes because you'll walk quite a bit, but there is so much to see, and, yes, you'll appreciate what you see: the almost fanatical emphasis on quality control, the well trained workers, and of course the giant robots.

“cool place”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

BMW is a cool place, especially if you can get a tour. They also put on a car festival called Euro Day that is an exceptional event. Great food, lots of cars, even some you can drive.

“BMW factory tour and museum”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

If you are a BMW fan and want to see how one is made or some of its history it is great. You do need to make reservations for the tour but the museum and small shop can be visited during normal hours .
