This shows the history of the Olympics from ancient Greece to modern day. It's next to the chocolate museum and it's pretty inexpensive, so I thought it was worth it, but otherwise if you're not interested in sports and won't receive the college student discount...More

The Museum is opened every day except Monday. Regular price is EUR 6. It shows the history of sport from ancient Greek athletics to nowdays focusing on German sport star like Micheal Schumacher. Lot of original pieces and illustrations in a 2000 square area. Very...More

I'm a massive sports fan so I was looking forward to seeing this place. It's literally next to the chocolate museum so you can combine the two visits, maybe getting a bit of lunch in between. The interpretation in this place is very old-fashioned, involving...More

As someone who doesn't follow sport in the slightest, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the museum. Great value for money, and a good mix of things to read, watch, and activities to do. You can also play football on the roof!...More

Before I came to Köln I had not heard about this museum, which I'm thankful for as it was great to stumble across. I knew just from looking just at the outside I would love it in there. It's very interactive and educational. I believe...More

The museum had some really interesting exhibits and there was some great hands-on activities to enhance the experience. We only had just over an hour to look around due to our plans, however I think it would have been better if we could have had...More

So nobody got bored - wish I'd taken a football for a kick around on the roof! Some great exhibits, obviously with a German theme, they didn't shy away from the '36 Olympics which was interesting.1966 world cup comments cracked me up - still contending...More
