Travel back to the colonial era at Museo Portugues, a small cultural heritage museum set in a charming 17th-century home. Central to the museum is the Portuguese colonial experience, exhibited through a range of artifacts that once belonged to original settlers. Particularly interesting is the collection of colonial-era maps, made at a time when European empire building and exploration sparked the golden age of cartography. Displays and dioramas help bring this period back to life, while information panels can provide additional insight into the area's history.

  • This museum is according to my judgment the most beautiful in Cologne, this Portuguese style house is super well maintained, and attended by two very friendly ladies. It has many historical objects, and when you take out the entrance (very economical) it also serves for two more museums. The only thing I don't like about this museum is that it's small and you're left wanting to see more.
