Museum Ludwig - Review

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.

Museum Ludwig, Cologne Reviews

  • Very modern and well designed. Coming into the lobby this placed looked like it was going to be empty. Once inside you really can admire the architecture of the building. The art is modern so some of it may not be enjoyable or appreciated by all but art is art. Great collection of Picasso’s on hand and some great other pieces scattered throughout. A definite must visit if in Cologne. 11€ admission seemed more than fair as well.

  • 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.

  • Everything was excellent, we've eaten here THREE TIMES this week! The Chanterelle mushrooms in the risotto were like something out of a dream! The salads are to die for. The blueberry--lavender lemonade was unbelievable. There hasn't been one thing we've eaten that wasn't phenomenal!! Their own farm to table menu is extremely creative. A must go visit to the restaurant then go to the museum to walk it off.

  • 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.

  • One of my all time favorite modern and contemporary art museums. The space is beautiful and the museum store/bookshop is worth visiting all on its own. The museum also has great windows and platforms for viewing Cologne from different angles. The temporary exhibitions are also exciting and the permanent collection is worth seeing at least once in your life as it is really unique.
