This is a wonderful museum located next to the Cathedral. It seems small from the outside but is much bigger than it looks and has a great collection of artefacts found locally and across the region. There is a fantastic mosaic floor that is still...More

I only lasted 10min. Went in as had museum card. Bit silly how they charge you 0.50e for cloakroom when all other Cologne museums don't. Its a large museum but not much in there, relative to other classical museums in Europe. I definitely wouldn't pay...More

Be prepared for unexpected hot conditions inside the museum; excellent gift shop and very nice restrooms on the main floor, though

We gave ourselves a self-guided tour, and it was really a good way to learn about the history of the area. They have artifacts from the pre-Roman period, too. Beautiful tile mosaics, statues, pottery and more. There were several school groups of children to maneuver...More

Should be great for people who love archeology. However, the exhibition has only translated the description of part of its treasures into a language other than German, while there were a lot of foreign tourists. Also, small handbags are not allowed in, even though everything...More
