    Innovative and Excellence
    Absolutely amazing to walk through and see the process of the production line. The BMW Plant in Spartanburg, (Greer) South Carolina is the largest production facility in the world! Building X models for the world! A must see!

    Amazing BMW Spartanburg museum and plant tour
    The BMW Spartanburg SC plant tour is amazing. It's presented by video which gives a great overview, aerial view of the campus, and in person in the plant especially observing the robotics precision engineering. Well worth planning a few days ahead, and get an inside glimpse in the plant and inside the beautiful museum and auto collection.

    Fascinating Tour. A must see!
    We loved the tour. Broke off into 2 groups of 12, each with a guide. Had headphones so could hear her well. Fascinating tour. Had friend with us that we pushed in wheelchair. When you check in, that area is the museum. Got there early enough to walk around the museum and take pictures. Highly recommend this tour.

    Great Tour and Learning Experience of BMW!
    This was a great tour and you don't have to be into cars to enjoy it! The history of each make and model and the cars themselves were great to see and learn about. I loved it and was never a BMW fan, but this totally changed my opinion! Definitely would buy an X model now... Also, this is a tour you want to bring family and friends back time and time again. Loved it!

Outstanding tour. The technology used in the factory is unbelievable. Guide was very informative. Plus, you get to see some great automobiles in the museum. Something for everyone. Highly recommended.

The museum is worth a stop even without a tour, it's in a very nice setting on the campus and includes a nice cafe. The tour is amazing, great example of humans and robots building fine tooled driving machines! I toured Oct 2023 and again Mar 2024, both with Tracey tour guide who does a super job. Highly recommend seeing this visitor friendly industry gem!

The tour was good, but beware at this time it is just the Zentrum museum and NOT the assembly line. The part of the factory that would normally be available for tour is currently closed due to construction. It may or may not be open again summer of 2024 per the guides.

The museum as it was was fun with the history of BMW, and getting to touch the models currently in production was nice. But if you want to a factory tour, this is not it right now.

Incredibly unprofessional and incompetent staff. How do you coordinate a date for a field trip months in advance, follow up the week before in person, and then the day of when the kids arrive say that the museum will be closed for a private event? On top of that lie and say that this was communicated when it wasn't as if we just felt like driving there and wasting our time anyway. No where on google, their website or social media pages was this information updated either. Other reviews show they have a history of doing this, so it's not worth the time you could potentially waste.

I called this museum about two and a half months before a planned field trip and spoke to an employee about our plans. I came in the week before and spoke to them AGAIN. An employee even said, “See you Tuesday!” Today the group showed up and were told that the museum is closed.

The way the Zentrum handled this situation was very unprofessional and downright rude. How can you disappoint children like that? More importantly, why is Eve lying and saying that she told me the museum was closed? She called someone last week to ask about the scavenger hunt I put together for our students but she NEVER said the museum was closed. The employee training with her is a witness because she said, “See you Tuesday!” as I was leaving.

It was a complete waste of everyone’s time to rush there this morning only to be told that the museum has an event until 2pm. I will not be recommending this museum to anyone but I will be telling them about my group’s bad experience.

I went here when it was a 2 hour tour and enjoyed it. This time around only 1 hour tour was available due to construction and this tour was dull not worth money. Just walked by one section came back and watched movie. The tour was basically walk and watch movie. Very boring.
