BMW Guided Tours | Spartanburg, SC
Vroom Vroom. Want a backstage pass to watch a magnificent machine being assembled before your eyes? What about a stroll through a most unusual museum dedicated to BMW, past and present?
BMW’s only American factory, in Greer, SC, is fascinating and it’s open for guided tours. Costing just $5/person (12 and older), this working factory offers visitors an inside look at how these remarkable machines are constructed.
Groups of up to 20 are allowed, and no cameras or camera phones are permitted. After seeing the process, take time to visit the Zentrum Museum just next door. Here, self-guided tours reveal rare vehicles from the company’s past, designed by the likes of Andy Warhol and others. These exhibits feature cars that have starred in James Bondtm movies, won championship races, and inspired generations of fans.

Hint: Wear fully enclosed, low-heeled, comfortable shoes – you’ll be walking a lot. The factory tour lasts about one hour, while a visit to the Zentrum may take longer, depending on your fascination.
