  • Beautiful experience both for the works that can be seen for both the architecture of the place that hosts them. Each work is well explained in English. A few hours well spent even if you are a connoisseur of modern art.

  • I had a great time walking the many floors and viewing the art work. There was a good range. I had excepted alot for pop art in the likes of warhol but it had a lot more of offer. From an historical collections to special exhibitions. The reception, an older male, was so so so helpful and patient. Truly wonderful. Even the security guard seemed to share the live for art. It also offers a nice view of the close by cologne cathedral.
  • Good museum. Staff not quite helpful so make sure you know own what you're doing. German an asset
  • Go get some photos with Picasso artwork. It's the only main attraction. The rest was very boring. BRING YOUR STUDENT ID for reduced admission! Clean toilets here too!
  • 7 euros entry and nice content. The guides are really good
  • It has got some amazing collection and gives description of different movements of art like pop art, expressionism, surrealism. Must go for art lovers.
