"Kolumba - Un-denk-bar" Museums Tip by dutchboycalledjan

Museums, Cologne: 26 reviews and 49 photos

I was flabbergasted by this museum. The building, the collection, the lay-out, the sounds, - please take time to listen to the noise -, rooms in one word amazing. Visitors become part of the collection, the environment. Most stunning was the Armarium, this dark room with its glass displays on the first floor. Worth the trip to Köln.

The museum is a new building over the archaeological remains of a church, also called Kolumba. It combines seamlessly middle age pieces with modern works of art - books, sculptures, dia shows, paintings, collages ... . The building is also a master work. The exhibits is changed every year, in August.

Address: Kolumbastraße 4
Directions: Between the Dom and Neumarkt
