Spent a good couple of hours wandering around the museum which has a large number of interesting exhibits and several are interactive which I wasn't expecting. Lots of different sports are covered and they layout is interesting. An adult ticket costs €6 and you'll spend at least an hour there so is good value for money!

We spent about 2 hours here. The museum has exhibits on a huge range of sports as well as about the olympics. Watch out at the end of the exhibit though, it takes you outside to sports courts (not ideal in the freezing cold in January!)

We walked to the science museum the other side of the river, but found it was just for children, so after a vist to the ice hockey staduium that was closed headed for this. It is very good and tells the story in both English and German

I had an hour to kill and was near this museum so I popped in to check it out. I was surprised that the entire time I was in the museum, that was it - just me, just one customer! The story starts with the ancient Olympics in Greece and moves into the German love of sports and then the... More

Fantastic museum. Alot of interactive activities for the young and old. Great displays throughout time including both German and International sporting heros. An excellent few hours spent by any sports enthusiast. Excellent collection of memorabilia. €6 entry.

This was unusual with lots of exhibits on sport and the Olympics. Loved seeing all the Olympic torches since 1936 including 2012. Some interactive exhibits which were fun. Pleasant cafe on the banks of the Rhine to enjoy a meal or snack.

Nice place for sport-interested people. There could be seen a F1 Renault from 1995 that Schumacher used to race in and also the balls from different football forums hosted in Germany

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.
