We really enjoyed this museum, it's really well stocked with interesting Olympic memorabilia and many moments to relive on the TV screens. My highlight was seeing how huge Shaquille O'neal's basketball trainers are at a European 59! Great relaxing cafe downstairs too.

We went there in late afternoon. It closes at 7p.m. A bit short and I expected to see more things. The F-1 car from " the Kaiser" was the most eye-catching thing. The oldest staff was very approachable and very kind to attend us and explain every part of the museum.

This museum is next to the chocolate museum by the Rhine river so very easy to find, if you like your sports you should visit, there are certain sports you can interact with.

This place is excellent there are all sorts of interesting memorabilia from just about every sport and it's very interesting to see. It doesn't look like much but see past the lack of rasmatas and you'll find something to interest you a must for all proper sport fans! The section on the 1936 Berlin Olympics was particularly well done!

My son who loves football (soccer) and likes many other sports found this underwhelming. It has a number of interactive displays but the one associated with football did not allow for many different people to use it. Consequently its availability was small and may have affected my son's response. There were places for a large number of sports. The layout... More

The fact they can't accept defeat in the 1966 world cup final didn't help, but seriously, kids running everywhere and the staff, who were miserable and rude, kind of ruined the experience

This place was a lot of fun. It wasn't on our bucket list of things to do in Cologne, but we just happened to run across it when we took the city tour. Interactive displays were a lot of fun.

Not even such a warm welcome from the girl at the front office on arrival, and then the place is not very well presented at all. They have a tennis court and basketball area at the top of the museum but you have to pay extra for balls. A big waste of time and would not recommend this place at... More

This museum was a very nice surprise, I did not expect much, but museum delivered very cool and interesting experience. Couple interactive exhibits, some interesting facts and photos, most of the information was both german and english. I did not expect to enjoy it so much as I am no big sports fan, but I did and are very glad,... More

Wasn't sure what to expect, but this museum was brilliant. Lots of interactive displays for the kids to try and great history and information for adult sports buffs. Staff were superb too. Can't recommend highly enough.
