Of postmodern art, the exhibits on display here are all works of art from the beginning of the 20th century. Named after the art patron, Peter Ludwig, it was his large donation of well known and reproduced works of Picasso that commemorated the foundation of this museum. After the museums in Paris and Barcelona, the Museum Ludwig has the third largest collection of the works of Picasso.

Another feature in the museum’s cap is boasting of the world’s largest collection of historic photographs and cameras. The pop-art American collection is not one you should miss out on.

  • Awesome awesome awesome! Huge collection of fantastic pieces on four floors. Architecturally interesting and a very pleasant space. Helpful and friendly staff. Tickets are 12 euro for adults and it's well worth to pay 3 euro for the audio guide. Must see if in Cologne and perhaps fit for more than one visit.

  • Outstanding modern art museum. Large collection of greats from the early 1900s through today. The attached restaurant is outstanding as well.

  • I had a fun time at the museum. Good collection and their feature of special exhibition was very interesting - local artist, Gabriele Mün­ter. Lots of light and easy to walk around to immerse yourself in the art. The lockers are free to use, just pay a deposit of €2 which you will easily get back at the end.

  • Loved getting to see the Picasso collection!! There was also a Salvador Dali on display! Staff was friendly and helpful, but they definitely shoo you out right at closing time! Loved the gallery and surrounding architecture. Close walk to a connected film museum, the riverside, and several bier gardens and cafes.

  • Pop art exhibition is excellent! Also, I liked very much that children under 18 do not pay for ticket. That is great!
