The ZKM is a former ammunition factory 3 storey tall. It is converted into a set of 6 museums in interesting fashion. Due to limited time we saw the code museum. It has facial recognition, bitcoin production and a robot which writes legal documents. It’s...More

Certainly not my cup of tea. First of all, I didn't understand what this place actually was, an art museum, a social club, a workshop? Some reviews call it the German Centre Pompidou. There is some similarity in the architecture of the building, but nothing...More

Nice, large museum of contemporary art. I totally recommend the interactive game play exhibition on the upper floor... Totally hilarious when you visit with friends.

Many locals have recommended that we check out this museum and so we did. There were two main exhibitions going on and it costs adults €6.00 for one or €10.00 for both (Combi ticket). Students pay €4.00 for one but not 100% sure how much...More
