Wallraf-Richartz Museum offers in-depth coverage of European art from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. If you are interested in arts, this should be a nice place for spending at least an hour.

This museum quite large for Cologne. Unfortunately very few paintings are interesting or have a real value. Visit if you have a free time, but nothing impressive.

This was a really great art museum to visit. They had really clever ways to explaining the art, and a room with bean bag chairs and good wifi and a great few of the city. The art itself was beautiful. I would happily go again.
