Cologne's rich museum landscape
Cologne has many museums, including several that are internationally renowned. While the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum & Fondation Corboud houses fascinating medieval paintings and an important collection of Impressionist paintings, the Museum Ludwig is home to the largest Pop Art collection outside of the USA. The glass collection at the Romano-Germanic Museum is unlike any other in the world, and at the Museum of Applied Arts design objects are presented in close relationship to works of fine art. An important collection of sacred art from the medieval period is presented in the Museum Schnütgen, and the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum features an impressive ethnological collection. These two museums have had new homes in the new museum district at Neumarkt since the autumn of 2010.
