Louis Museum set the pitch in modern German art. It's situated behind Cologne Cathedral in the centre of the city. The museum exhibits works of different times starting with the previous century and ending with present day. The most famous is the section of American pop-art. It has the largest collection of works in this style, located not in the USA. It contains the works by Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and Roy Fox Lichtenstein. There also a big number of works by Picasso.
In Roman-Germanic Museum the unique archaeological objects are exhibited. They were found during the dig on the place of the ancient Roman town, where later Cologne was built. The museum was built on the ruins of the Roman villa of the 3rd century and opened in 1974. It takes place not far from the Cologne Cathedral. Its greatest exhibit is surely the mosaics of Dionysus, the floor, made of ceramic tiles of 225, which used to decorate the city villa.
