Municipal Museum Cologne

The Municipal museum of Cologne (Kölnisches Stadtmuseum) presents, collects and preserves exhibits and works of art on the history of the city of Cologne from the Middle Ages to the present day. It was founded in 1888 as “Historisches Museum der Stadt Köln” and since 1958 it has been housed in the “Zeughaus” – the city’s former armoury. The collection provides visitors with the opportunity to gain an insight into the political history, economy, intellectual, religious and everyday life and typical characteristics of the city. Highlights of the collection include the large-scale town model, the magnificent silver of the city council, the splendid knights’ coats of armour and a model of an internal combustion engine.
