Cologne City Museum


Discover the history of Cologne! The Kölnisches Stadtmuseum takes you on unique time travels through the exciting past of the cathedral city - from the Middle Ages to the present!

In the summer of 2023, the Kölnisches Stadtmuseum will reopen in the former fashion house Franz Sauer at Minoritenstraße 13. With the move out of the Zeughaus, the house will not only change its address, but also the entire museum concept. You can look forward to an innovative - surprising (!) - new permanent exhibition that will tell the story of the city of Cologne in a completely new way, with all its facets, contradictions and different perspectives. And also takes a look at the present and future of the city!
