It's a 18 euros bargain for over 10 museums including this + Ludwig. At this museum, many decent portraits and religious drawings at floor -1 and 1, great for Pointillism. Floor 3 is for temporary exhibitions (now with American art). Unclear policy about photos, no...More

Wallraf-Richartz Museum offers in-depth coverage of European art from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. If you are interested in arts, this should be a nice place for spending at least an hour.

This museum quite large for Cologne. Unfortunately very few paintings are interesting or have a real value. Visit if you have a free time, but nothing impressive.

This was a really great art museum to visit. They had really clever ways to explaining the art, and a room with bean bag chairs and good wifi and a great few of the city. The art itself was beautiful. I would happily go again.
