The Museum für Angewandte Kunst Köln (German for "Museum of Applied Art"; MAKK) is a decorative arts museum in Cologne. The collections include jewellery, porcelain, furniture, weaponry and architectural exhibits. Until 1987 it was called the Kunstgewerbemuseum ("Decorative Art Museum").
The city of Cologne decided to found an applied art museum in 1888. The core of the exhibition originally came from the collections of Ferdinand Franz Wallraf (1748–1824) and Matthias Joseph de Noël (1782–1849), and the exhibition was soon expanded through endowments. The museum's original location was a Neo-Gothic building on the Hansaring, built in 1900, but this was destroyed by bombs in 1943.

The exhibition is very interesting. You will find any kind of objects from hundreds years ago. Artists from all around the world (Asia, Germany, France, England, Austria, etc) I would not recommend the gaming exhibition, it's expensive and not very interesting.

MAkk is a wonderful museum. It contains many examples of beautiful design & craft from approximately 15thC onwards. There is wood, ceramic, all kinds of metal precious & not so, glass etc. Give yourself enough time to be intrigued & take it in & enjoy it. There is a pleasant cafe for a reinvigoration of the senses. Favourite exhibits: a Riemensneider, a carved wooden powder box & Art Nouveau furniture.

At the moment, there is just one room open to visit, which contains the current exhibition and nothing from the collections. It was a real shame that we only found this out after having viewed the exhibition - information on the building works seems to be quite well hidden on the website, and we didn't notice any information in the reception. Disappointing because it looks like an awesome museum when the collection is open.
