Interesting modern art including large collection of Picasso. Had a great time. Some interesting exhibits including a slice of bread and lots of Venetian blinds to dust! Great experience.

Walk in and you will soon notice how well designed the building is. Spacious rooms with an ingenious lighting system which lights room evenly and avoids glare on the art. Only downside is that it can be a bit chilly inside on a warm day...More

A good museum with a variety of modern art. Somewhat expensive for its size. Note that the best views of the cathedral are from the museum's terrace.

We visited particularly to see the Picasso exhibition, which we enjoyed. Some of the other current exhibitions were crowd dividers! Museum Ludwig provided us with lots to talk about, debate and laugh about. Maybe a little expensive but lovely gallery.

This is one of the best contemporary and modern art museums I have ever visited, and I would recommend it highly to anyone visiting Cologne who likes art and needs a break from churches, old architecture, and botanical gardens.

Worth a look, but not mind blowing - but then art is subjective, so each to their own. For me it seemed oddly laid out and incomplete

My wife and I were thoroughly impressed with the amount of art covering so many eras and genre. The Picasso section was fascinating to explore.

Our experience of German cuisine is one of often interesting variety and good quality but lacking in seasoning and tending toward the bland. Museum Ludwig was no exception. The service was excellent.

I went here with my School for an art project. This museum was really good for it, it was all really interesting and nice to go to. If you’re into postmodern art you should definitely go.
