This is definiately a place to see in Köln! Medieval jewelery and furniture from the Rococo period give you the taste of history and the Design exhibition takes you on a journey with the everyday products designs. I would really love to visit it again! For some the price (6€ - permanent exhibitons) might be a bit too high, but... More

A wonderful, huge museum that currently has an exhibit of hundreds of radios and sound equipment from the first days of radio to current times, with all descriptions in English as well as in German. That, plus the massive permanent design exhibition, makes this an absolute "must see." Furniture, electronics, porcelain . . . it's all here. And it's just... More

I loved the exhibitions and overall was pleased to have visited. I was saddened though that two or three of the guards/staff walking around seemed to be either 'anti-foreigners', 'homophobic' or plain rude. They were rude in German (of which, I only know a little) and looked at us with evil eyes for whatever reason. Go - explore but the... More

We had the pleasure of going to the Museum for Angewandte Kunst yesterday. Located near to the Dom, the museum's collection spans the centuries, showcasing furniture, metal work, ceramics, glass and more. All the items in the collection are well lit and displayed with descriptions for each item. We were very pleased to take time to experience the museum and... More
