  • Very well curated museum with a plethora of fascinating and beautiful artefacts from all over the world. Could easily spend an entire day exploring it in detail. One of the most interesting museums I've ever seen, and definitely one of the best in Cologne. Must see!

  • Very good museum with a great collection of items from all over the world. All have a description and they also have an audio guide in multiple languages. The only thing that would be nice, if All of the descriptions were in both German and English

  • It's great museum with high interactivity and great vast collection of world cultures. Going to this museum gives you the sense of being an explorer. Althought the museum is not for the faint of heart. Some exhibition in the museum is a bit bone chilling especially the mask and portal section.

  • Really fascinating and well done museum. Certainly worth seeing if you have few days in Cologne.

  • Awesome! Great use of light, placement, and technology. This museum presented a viewpoint not often seen in anthropological museums: recognition of past wrongs. The items on display are fantastic.
