The museum appears very attractive at entrance. Once you enter, it is a bit like a maze, as you enter, view all the pieces and exit back at the corridor, following the pieces as you walk along. The pieces are fascinating, especially the ones by Picasso; I would never have thought that I would be able to view the originals of some of Picasso's most significant pieces, such as 'Harlequin with hands folded'. I also liked Weed, painted bronze piece that looked to me like a real plant sprouting from under the wall and I only realised that it was bronze once I touched it. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and admired the originality and lifelikeness of the statues. There were also interactive stations where you were able to listen to information at a computer, which enhanced the whole experience. The museum gives a whole new insight into modern and contemporary art which is why I would recommend it. Usually, I would not enjoy walking through a gallery of art but visiting this museum gave me a whole new impression on art and its originality. Some of my favourite pieces on display included: The Restaurant Window by George Segal (a statue of two white figures standing by a window), 11 Panes by Gerhard Richter (eleven panes of glass placed in front of one another with a gap in between each one to create a ghostly effect when looked into) and Ctesiphon III by Frank Stella (a magnificent wheel of flourescent shades). The museum is also located very near to the Cologne cathedral.
