Amazing!

Totally fascinating, as our family had never been in an auto assembly plant. A thrill to see some of the best cars made, being made! And the museum is fascinating as well.

The Ultimate Driving Experience -BMW.The Zentrum is newly renovated and has a nice cafe and gift shop in the midst of awesome vehicles. Located next to the largest volume producing plant in the BMW Group, this is defintiely worth a stop. Directly off of HWY 85, it is a nice place to take a break. Plant tours available various time...

We had some free time on the way to the airport and stopped at the BMW Zentrum. While they were not offering tours of the plant, we still liked walking through this clean attraction filled with current models as well as older, more historical automobiles. Can't adequately explain how friendly and helpful the receptionist was on our visit. She really... More

I was part of a fundraising party. They served us hors d'oeuvres open bar and one ride around the BMW track. I had no idea you would be so much fun, it was like we were in a getaway car and the Bad guys were after us :-) . I would love to do it again.

The staff was extremely nice and helpful! Could probably be walked through in around 30 minutes. So while it is small, it is very well done! Has some very nice examples from BMW's history!

Very cool place to tour and bring the out-of-town guests and see the well-curated and changing exhibits shown in this small corporate museum at the huge Spartanburg BMW plant. Even better if you call ahead a week or two and reserve a plant tour to see the factory. Amazing robotics, clean rooms to paint the cars, and huge assembly lines... More

We arrived with 4 other adults early in the morning of our scheduled visit. We were courtely met and after coffee moved onto the very organized tour. It was quite fascinating and we especially liked the robot assembly line. You fely like you were in a mechanized Juassic Park

It is temporally closed for remodeling. Before closing it was a great walk through BMW History. They have quite a few cars, bikes and even a few airplane motors on display. In addition it is powered by the solar panels visible from I 85 in-front of the plant. If you are visiting, be sure to inquire about a tour of... More

Skip it! Customer service was poor, hours make it almost impossible to get there. Prices are inflated. Would not recommend to tourist or take visitors.
