An overview of the CMS Muon Detector System design and goals is made. The system includes several types of detectors. In the barrel part Drift Tube Chambers are used, whereas Cathode Strip Chambers have been chosen for the endcaps. The main features, and the performance, of both types of chambers are described. We also report on the current status of the production of these detectors.
