National Socialism Documentation Center
#3 of 37 Museums in Cologne
The day I was there, there was a very lovely staff member who told us a few stories about his career in museums in Cologne and his thoughts on Brexit (the vote for which happened the day before - we live in London...
We have visited a few similar museums in Germany and Eastern Europe and this one is very well done.
Kolumba
#4 of 37 Museums in Cologne
Built on the ruins of the old Kolumba church, this is one of the best curated museums I have been to.
This is a smallish museum, with bits of the medieval St Columba church preserved, a postwar memorial chapel in one corner, and a strangely restful modern museum designed by a leading Swiss architect, Peter Zumthor.

Roman-German Museum (Romisch-Germanisches Museum)
#8 of 37 Museums in Cologne
This must be one of the best museums for Roman artefacts outside of Italy (and a lot better than some in Italy) The mosaics in the basement are incredible, it must have taken many man hours from a lot of people to...
I've been in a lot of glass and roman museums but this museum very great with a lot of details well designed.

Chocolate Museum
#9 of 37 Museums in Cologne
The Cologne chocolate museum is a great way to take a break from the usual cathedral and museums.
(Word has it that the city fathers and mothers are disturbed that the Chocolate Museum is the most popular in Cologne, over its other, higher-brow art and history museums.

Kathe Kollwitz Museum

We visited this museum as the last stop on a study trip with the South and East Museums Federation and were astonished by the extent of the collection - it was amazing to be able to look at several different versi...
The museum is situated on top of a small shopping mall, and the light here is great and gives the drawings and the art an extra dimension.

We spent most of our day in the children museum, the place is absolutely fantastic I will highly recommend it if you have kids, they can play all around and experiment with everything.
Even though it's a "kids" science museum, there is plenty that adults can do, too!

This is a wonderful museum to visit that offers some great insight into this magnificent city and Germany itself.
