For your individual visit to the permanent exhibition, audioguides in various languages (German, German for children, English and French) are available free of charge. Here you will find informative and lively audio material on all the major exhibits, giving you the charge to plunge deep into the city’s history.
In addition there is also the ‘Kölnisches Stadtmuseum’ app, which can be downloaded free of charge from all the usual stores for iPhone and Android users. The app contains more than 70 audio contributions (note: in German only!) with exciting stories, details and backgrounds relating to the highlights of the permanent exhibition. As a ‘special’, the app offers a ‘perspective guided tour’ in which eleven citizens of Cologne with a migrant background introduce objects from the city’s history to which they have a very special relationship.
A detailed service section provides information about special exhibitions, events, how to get here, opening times and admission charges.
Visitors can download the smartphone guide using the free Wifi in the foyer of the Kölnisches Stadtmuseum, or else download the app at home and in this way obtain a lot of useful information in advance of visiting the exhibition itself.
