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.

This museum was very cheaply priced and was part of the reason we decided to go in. I am not an overly sporty person but I did quite enjoy looking around this museum. It wasn't very big (hence the price,) but had some interesting artefacts and footage. There was footage from the first Olympics held in Germany, which I found... More

It is a very entertaining museum. It features several sports; you can measure by yourself how long is the long jump world record distance for example. I spent about 1 hour and I never got bored. It is also close to the chocolate museum, also worth visiting.

The museum provides an interesting insight into Germany's sporting past including well-known names such as Boris Becker and Michael Schumacher. The exhibits are varied and displayed in an imaginative way on the first floor of the museum, and there is a café on the ground floor overlooking the Rhine. The museum organises children's sports activities around the exhibits and it's... More

This museum is one of a kind; very informative historical perspectives are presented, especially focusing on the 1936 Berlin and 1972 Munich Olympiads. The interactive exhibits showing sports performance metrics over the years were very interesting. If you have any interest in athletics, sports or history in general, you have come to the right place. The location is within easy... More

The old dock area has been redeveloped and you can drop the kids next door at the chocolate museum and go here for a more cerebral experience if you like sports. There's some fascinating exhibits and a good cafe on the waterfront with nice food and pleasant staff with old rowing boats overhead etc. don't be misled by the main... More

I went to the Sports Museum becuase it was included on a multi-ticket I had purchased. I went not knowing what to expect and to be honest I was expecting it to be boring. I love sport but even then I wasn't sure how this was going to go (I love chocolate but the museum was disappointing..). It was fantastic!... More
