  • This is a wonderful museum to visit that offers some great insight into this magnificent city and Germany itself. From the middle ages onwards the history of Cologne and Germany is showcased over two ...  more »
  • This museum, like many others in Germany, has only the information regarding the exposure in German. There is no paper or/and audio guide in a language other than German (we asked for Italian, French, Spanish or English). Frankly I can't comment on the show and I don't want to comment on the degree of attention of the Germans for tourists.

  • The building is easily recognizable by the shutters along the Windows. A little outside the village. Fine

  • Museum about and preserves the history of Cologne. Cool winged golden American Ford car on top.
  • The text is only in German. There are only 2 rooms to this museum. You ca enter for free if you take the city tour bus
  • Great museum about the history of Cologne. It glosses over the Nazi period a bit and focuses more on the day-to-day life, but it's got a great free audio guide (in several languages) and some really good exhibits. Great to visit with kids too. Great for about 1.5-2 hours visit.
  • They have nice maquettes of the city and impressive photos of the city after the bombing but that's it. Get the free audio tour as many things aren't in English. Short museum ~45 mins max
  • 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).
