One of Cologne's oldest museums and hands down its most architecturally inventive, the Kolumba gets its name from the church that, destroyed during the war, once occupied the site. The new building connects the museum, the church's ruins, as well as the 1950s chapel that was built in the intervening years. The collection of generally religious-themed art from Late Antiquity to the present is, refreshingly, displayed without explanatory text or with deference to any kind of schematic ordering.
