Walking around the streets just of Schildergasse is a thing I love to do,the different architectural styles amaze me,a mix of modern and old blend seamlessly together,the damage this city sustained during world war two was devastating but post war rebuilding projects have left us with building such as the one that houses Kolumba ,a museum,I never visited the museum but I was took by the beautiful and unique architecture, the main entrance is superb,well worth checking out if your in the area and easy to locate along Kolumbastraße.

Have to totally agree with the many negative reviews written; why is it that the staff follow you around? I’ve never seen so many staff in a museum who watch your every move; it’s awful - please stop it!

Signage is poor and there’s little labelling of artefacts (which needs to be in multiple languages). Pamphlet is boring and difficult to follow.

Don’t go until they improve it.

Some reviews suggested it was a must-sees museum. So beg to differ. Despite its large exterior it is a quite small museum with only the ruins in the basement and two floors of exhibits. The Columba plot was completely lost in a mish mash of 20th Century home appliances and meaningless modern art. Most of the artwork was eminently forgettable. Signage was poor and it was sometimes difficult to match the exhibit with the poorly produced guide pamphlet. There was no attempt to explain or label what you were viewing in the basement ruins. The entrance fee was only €5 but I would not have visited if I had known the contents before entering. You may wish to visit the interesting adjoining chapel free of charge.

Kolumba is a small museum. Though it is well maintained, there is not much to see. Expecting more in next visit.

The architecture of the building is interesting as it attempts to integrate the old church walls. You can enter 2 small chapels on one side, 1 has interesting stain glass windows and the other a wall with modern sculpted stations of the cross, plus a view of the archeological diggings which are worth doing and all are free.

However if you pay to visit the museum you will be given a guide book which is tiny print and only in German. The collection is a complete mixture of items which seem totally unrelated. There are no labels on items to explain anything about it. There are domestic items from an early age, 1950s possibly? or who knows what age mixed in with abstract sculptures and some religious items.

It is totally confusing. You have to climb lots of steps but there is a lift which is not clearly indicated. Everything seems to ensure you have a disappointing experience.
