By going to the Olympic Museum Cologne, increase your knowledge about the history of the Olympics. The location of this museum is more interesting. On the one side is close to Chocolate Museum. And is also in line with the Rhine.

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
