  • 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
  • Not a bad museum. Explores the history of Cologne from the medieval period to the modern, though does sort of go backwards.
  • Nice place to see historic items but the signs are only in German. You can get a headset guide in English but it does not cover all of the items. Worth spending about 1-2 hours there.
  • 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).
