The Wallraf-Richartz museum offers an interesting journey through art of the past millenium. The explanations given are comprehensive. At 13,- EUR entrance is very expensive, though.

Even Kids from 4 years on are in awe, not only because of the little games. From Medieval altarpaintings to contemporary artwork. Too much for one day, but if you are with kids: don´t stretch it too long.

This is is a world-class smaller art museum. The building, clearly being custom built, has superb viewing spaces and lighting, and great circular flow. While the baroque and 19th century floors offer sensible and interesting collections, there's no doubt that the highlight is the medieval...More

Not just mediaeval, but also Baroque and 19th Century. The descriptions on the paintings go beyond the who painted it and what is it representing, but it also gives you the context in which it was created and some techniques used in some of them

Lovers of art should visit this museum. A look at its website will suggest the quality of the work shown in it, from late medieval art through to modern times, with plenty of work by famous Old Masters.

If you're a fan of old paintings (1100-1900) you positively have to visit this gorgeous museum. It's not to big, and not to small, perfect for museum lovers who do have other plans for the day. We took our time and we're inside for approximately...More

Amazing Museum with Art from 13th to 20th Century. Visit also the Sammlung Ludwig of 20th and 21st Century. Most amazing this was all a private collection donated to the city of Collogne.
