  • This museum is very interesting and informative for visitors who want to know more about Cologne's history. An English audio guide is available but all the printed information in the museum are in Ger...  more »
  • Here are gathered the testimonies to the history of Cologne. There are exhibits of various types like armor, modern objects, archaeological remains, the soil stratigraphy of the city and a collection relating to crafts and activities in the city. The captions are mostly in German but there are guides that can help. The Museum is accessible with museum card which allows access to various museums.

  • The City Museum is worthwhile for a deeper look into the city's history. Who want to educate themselves, is an absolute must here properly and at least for the Cologne. Old pictures, models, and maps of Cologne are shown shown. The armour reflect the character of the building as the former armoury. The Skurilität of the building is based on the Golden, winged car, resting on the roof.

  • At any case good place to visit if you want to better know Cologne. Unfortunately all labels are only in German. Though stuff speaks English. No audio guide in Russian. The one in English is of very low quality. Don't forget to take 2 euro or 50 cents with you to lock your stuff (you not allowed to take your backpacks with you).
  • Good starting point to learn about Köln history. English friendly.
  • Learn about the history of Cologne. Very nice museum.
  • I really learned a lot about Köln. They have headsets so you can hear some of the captions in languages other than German if you don't speak German.
  • Great presentation of this history of the city - even if you go in the wrong direction! Well worth a visit.
