The museum rooms are temporarily closed

Dear visitors,
our museum is to become more ecological!
Due to the necessary constructional and conceptual measures, in particular an energetic renovation of the current building, the exhibition rooms will be closed until probably Autumn 2023

Nevertheless, we will still be there for you!


From 2 February 2023, we look forward to welcoming you to our pop up space: In our ›museum workshop‹ in the Neumarkt Passage, opposite the Tentazioni ice cream cafe, we will gradually present what we are working on for you behind the scenes during the closure. ›Experience Kollwitz‹ is the motto under which we will then present the collection exhibition anew: From a virtual studio of the artist to analogue and digital background information on the life and work of Käthe Kollwitz to interactive offers to understand her artistic techniques.

But not only that - in our workshop you can also get active yourself! We invite children, young people and adults to workshops on a wide variety of topics and techniques, organise talks and lectures  and open our pop-up museum shop.

In addition, we will keep providing you with new interesting content and varied digital offers on our website and social media channels.

And we will also have a surprising presence in analogue form at various locations in Cologne.

You will find out more about this here shortly.
Stay tuned!
