Inga FischerSince 1989, the Museum of applied arts presents a comprehensive collections of 800 years of European arts and crafts. Through the collection Prof. R.G. Winkler, a much larger design department could set up the Museum. The exhibits include mainly contemporary design architecture and photography to different areas of the arts and crafts. I can only recommend a visit and also in the Museum Shop you should look necessarily!show original
Michael AdamczakA very special place. The guide provides insight into history and architecture of the House, as well as the richness of its collections based on the top ten of the Museum of the Middle Ages until today. So, you get an overview of the only Museum of its kind in North Rhine-Westphalia in the blink of an eye. The guided tour of the permanent exhibition "art + design in the dialog offers a very representative sample of fine and applied art from the 20th century to this day." The Division advanced to the Winkler collection offers the exciting and quite exclusive opportunity to see art and design together and compare. Definitely worth a visit.show original
Petra Agnes SchnitzlerWhen I'm in Cologne, then I like to go to the Museum, here I'm inspired always. Wonderful works which show that art and design must be located not far away from each other. The special exhibitions, as well as the collection of the Museum are certainly worth a visit. The café in the Museum is always the culmination for me, here I can think a little thoughts go and relax me.show original
