  • Large museum with a fair sized collection from a variety of modern art periods. Downstairs focuses on more contemporary pieces whilst the upper levels have works from Dali, Mondrian, Miro etc.
  • As a modern art enthusiast, I really loved the diversity in this museum. It's really​ a great deal for the price since the museum is quite large and seems to keep going on. As with all museums, I'd recommend going and finding a room you really love and just soaking it in.
  • Massive and amazing collection. A must see for any art lover. Give yourself a few hours. It's centrally located right next to the Cathedral and the Roman Museum and is a two minute walk from the train station.
  • Great modern and contemporary art museum. Good collection from all over the place plus a selection of local and German art. Very worth going to if you're​ in Cologne and like modern art!
  • I loved that museum!! Modern art and super modern art! Totally to go!!
