I was in Cologne ton Jan 2 and 3 when the museum was supposed to be open and both times it was closed, they didnt have the decency to place a message on their website or even post the reasons why it's closed in English.

We visited here as the cultural part of our stay in the city. It was 11€ each to get in and we were there for about an hour. Not everything has an English translation, but it is still worth a visit!
