Well maintained museum which was built in 1913, the oldest of its kind in the country.

A show worth seeing with Chinese, Korean and Japanese exhibits of high quality. Presentation and explanations are excellent. In addition to catalogs and an extensive selection of literature, the museum shop also offers beautiful ceramics from the Margaretenhöhe (Lee) manufactory. Unfortunately, the bistro with the beautiful view of the pond is closed at the moment. The ensemble is worth a trip, especially when the weather is nice. Parking is free(180min).

Visit to the museum on August 21, 2022: Very informative, interesting discussion/guided tour by a competent, friendly lady with great expertise. The focal point was the exhibition "Focus on Asia".

A beautiful museum with a small museum shop and a small outdoor terrace where you can have coffee. The Shin Hanga exhibition was well worth seeing.

A place to encounter Far Eastern culture. Today is my third visit to the Shin-Hanga exhibition, Japan's modern color woodcut. A presentation of beautiful prints with outstanding exhibits. Fortunately, the chronological context and the techniques of wood printing are explained to me in an understandable way. After all, I'm not an expert. The focus for me, however, is the direct encounter with beautiful prints that inspire aesthetically and technically every time. The exhibition makes me curious and I'm already looking forward to future visits to the MOK. My thanks to the exhibition team.

The building is absolutely beautiful. A must go if you're in Cologne.

Beautiful and very appealingly curated exhibitions - currently e.g. on the art movement 'Shin-hanga' (Japanese woodcut). If you are interested in art-historical and socio-cultural topics related to East Asia, it is always worth a visit!

The East Asian Heritage Museum is a beautiful small building that will take you to Eastern Asia, located just next to Hiroshima-Nagasaki Park, I recommend hopping off at the University Banhof, which is directly next to the museum, now you can choose between walking around the giant pond and the arounds first or visiting the museum. For a good visit, allow a couple of hours, as the building, even if it seems small, contains a lot of treasures.

Basically a very relaxing place, except for the occasional screaming toddler who snaps you out of the moment. Of course, the place can't do anything about that, since it's a municipal museum, so it can't ban children from it of its own accord. (The city of Cologne gets a star deduction for this). The security guards are all very nice and, when taking pictures, tell you not to tear down the millennia-old Japanese scrolls with my backpack. A parking disc is also available for a small deposit, so that the private parking surveillance company does not give you a €30 ticket. (Really good!) All in all worth a visit.

A museum with unforgettable events and exhibitions of Asian art and culture. I really like the museum's tagline that he posted on his website. “With its exhibitions, the house invites you to appreciate the art and culture of the Far East in terms of world art; any form of racism has no place in it. "

It's a rather small place that takes themselves serious. Every exhibition I have gone to has been neatly organized and amazed me. Also their gift shop include various books, some historical, on the topics of their exhibitions

Although I was born in Cologne, I only recently discovered this gem by chance during the KölnTag. Immerse yourself in a fascinating other "world" and culture,

A rather inconspicuous from the outside, but very interesting and beautiful museum. Highly recommended on the first Thursday of the month (free entry for residents of Cologne). After the tour you can sit in the café in the museum, from where you have a picturesque view of the Aachen pond and Hiroshima-Magasaki Park and a small Japanese garden.

Felipe Rodríguez Martínez 4 years ago

gorgeous and delicate selection that shows in facts and aesthetics the long running curatorial wffort of the institution. It was a pleasure to hear bells from 3000 years ago chinese culture. Granted thar I will go to the next expos. The restaurant is not bad and the looks to hiroshima park and the inner pond are also cool, sadly the menu has almost no Asian Food but that is ok since it is a museum of the city of Cologne and not a theme park. Anyways some fermented foods like Natou or Kimchi would be a great add on to breakfasts. Super nice place, 5 stars overall.

Gesamtkunstwerk, which also leans heavily on Japan in terms of architecture, interior design and courtyard garden. Again and again very interesting exhibitions. The attached "tea house" with panoramic views of the Aachener Weiher is very beautiful.

Niclas Weiß 4 years ago

A worthwhile excursion destination, not only because of the collection, which focuses on Japanese and Chinese art, but also because of the attractive museum building, which in its architectural restraint with interesting structural and plastic details goes well with the exhibited objects. A visit is always worthwhile, not least because of the interesting special exhibitions and the events accompanying the exhibitions. The museum café is also recommended.
