The museum emerged in 1976 as an independent instituition from the Wallraf-Richartz Museum. It essentially incorporates the Sammlung Haubrich, a collection by Josef Haubrich of art from the years 1914 to 1939 donated to the city of Cologne on 2 May 1946.

Another integral part of the museum is the Sammlung Ludwig, a collection of art by Picasso, Russian avant-garde and American Pop-art artists.
