6 Euro entry per adult and was well worth it. Along with the standard museum exhibitions and info there was parts where you could give bits a go. Would recommend on a rainy day! Plus next door is a chocolate museum!

Really, really interesting! We spent several hours reading the plaques and looking at all the sports memorabilia! We learned a lot and really enjoyed it.

This shows the history of the Olympics from ancient Greece to modern day. It's next to the chocolate museum and it's pretty inexpensive, so I thought it was worth it, but otherwise if you're not interested in sports and won't receive the college student discount...More

I'm a massive sports fan so I was looking forward to seeing this place. It's literally next to the chocolate museum so you can combine the two visits, maybe getting a bit of lunch in between. The interpretation in this place is very old-fashioned, involving...More

Fantastic idea, great knowledge and real treasures, but the place does not fit the content and our time. Stuff: bored, tired, but angry. Needs new leaders. If it is a hot day, do not dare to enter. The cage is also boiling. No medals. Children...More

As someone who doesn't follow sport in the slightest, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the museum. Great value for money, and a good mix of things to read, watch, and activities to do. You can also play football on the roof!...More

Before I came to Köln I had not heard about this museum, which I'm thankful for as it was great to stumble across. I knew just from looking just at the outside I would love it in there. It's very interactive and educational. I believe...More
