‪Non Germans are most definitely NOT welcome at this museum. Foreign travellers are not required. Obviously the COVID restrictions do make things tricky for all museums, but if you don't have the scannable EU COVID pass, be prepared for a tricky encounter at the door with the German speaking staff who cannot understand your non EU COVID vaccination certificate or your non EU ID. Heaven forbid you've had the J&J Janssen single does vaccination. That is beyond their understanding of any known science. It's 2 jabs of Pfizer or nothing as far as they're concerned. However, if you manage to get past this "welcome", the museum and they've explained only one of the galleries is open... they only take cash. It's 2021. Not 1821. No cash = No visit. Welcome to modern Germany.‬

‪A really good museum but not funny when you find things you have still at home on display in a museum !! I didnt buy it from IKEA obviously. A great collection to show how technology and design has evolved. A really good if not huge museum.‬

‪I saw some of the critical reviews but was still interested. The main exhibits were closed but the special exhibit was spectacular - Bauhaus items mainly dishes, but also costumes and stage designs & puppets. This was the largest and most spectacular exhibit I’ve ever seen of Bauhaus objects. Wonderful. There was also an exhibit of photos modernists concert hall all over Europe. At a minimum, before you write off this museum check out what the special exhibits are!

‪We visited on good friday. The receptionist barely looked up on us when we wanted to pay for entrance. Most of the museum was closed down. The only accepted cash despite haveing a card reader. She said they only accepted german cards. All broschures and all texts in the museum was only in german.
Definetly don´t bother with this museum unless you are german.‬

‪Not much to see. We spent about 30-45 minutes there. The main exhibit is permanently closed (not updated on website and unsure if it will reopen). The other two exhibits were quite average. Luckily it was free. We did pay for one of the temporary exhibits (Andy Warhol) which was rather good and had information in both German and English. If you have absolutely nothing else to do, you could swing by this museum. Otherwise, skip it. ‬

‪Very disappointed at poor information about the museum being closed. Only a small paragraph at the bottom of web page explains it is closed and there is nothing at the entrance. Staff seem to think that because there is one special exhibition open there is no need to tell the public the main museum is closed. Opening hours don't earn people either. Don't waste your time visiting the museum before checking if it has reopened.‬

‪The first are of exhibition is about innovation in relation to household furniture and goods. From here, head up to the next floor which contains a number of displays of Meissen, other brands of porcelain, glassware, old-style furniture and jewellery.‬

‪We almost missed visiting this museum, only picking up a brochure at our hotel on our return trip to Cologne after our Rhine cruise. It should have been at the top of the TO DO list. First, it's a short walk from the Dom through one of the shopping areas.

But although it is called the Museum of Applied Arts (be aware street signage sometimes called it MARKK and sometimes the Museum of Applied Arts)….that term doesn’t really do the collection justice.

The collection includes 800 years of European arts and crafts with ceramics, glass, silver, jewellery, pottery, micro-mosaics, inlay, iconography, wood carving and furniture, all beautifully presented and with interesting labelling and information. The jewellery collection goes back to Roman times.

The quality of the collection is breathtaking and the displays are simple and elegant. But just about when you think you've had overload the whole thing changes completely and you find yourself in the more traditional "applied arts" displays of appliances, furniture, homewares that bring you from the 17th to the 20th century. From Bauhaus chairs and deco silver tea pots you suddenly find yourself looking at old telephones and hair dryers and kitchen gadgets you have a feeling might still be lurking in the back of a drawer at home.

Thank goodness there's an excellent café, because you need a break and a rest. The food and service were excellent. There's also a gift shop. It's a big building, with a big collection. If you like house museums, decorative arts and jewellery allow half a day. Seriously.‬

‪The museum is good and has LOTS of stuff. There's countless pieces of furniture, pottery, and other interesting relics. Though these things are interesting, it gets a little boring after a while, and this museum just has so much of it. My favorite part, which I loved, was the design exhibition Full House. It featured prototypes of designer Stefan Diez's work. It was very interesting! I loved how you could touch the pieces. It really enhanced the experience. All in all, the exhibition was fantastic whereas I was not a huge fan of the permanent collection.‬

‪This modern well-lit museum has 3 floors of exhibition space -- basement, 1 floor up from ground level (Floor 1), and another floor up (Floor 2). Unfortunately, the design of the building put the elevator in the lobby area OUTSIDE the museum entrance and the only way to use the elevator is to ask a staff to use their key card to activate the elevator. As I have knee problems making walking up and down the stairs hazardous, the staff at entrance let me use the elevator to get to the top floor to start my visit. As it turned out, the top floor only has a small temporary exhibition and I could not use the elevator to go down 1 floor as there was no staff around. I had no choice but to walk down 1 big flight of stairs. The floor above the ground floor (Floor 1) houses the magnificent permanent collection with countless remarkable pieces of furniture and decorative art objects spanning over several centuries. The basement level houses the modern pieces, mostly furniture and household appliances. It should be noted that all the information are in German only. The fact that visitors must walk long flights of stairs between each floor is quite problematic. The only elevator that visitors can freely use is for the ride between museum's ground floor lobby and basement WC facilities. I had to walk down 3 long flights of stairs and then walked up another flight of stairs from basement level to ground floor level. For mobility-impaired visitors, I would recommend that you ask the staff at the museum entrance to let you use the elevator to "Floor 1" for the permanent collection. The top floor's small special exhibition is not that interesting and there was no staff on that floor to help operate the elevator .‬
