Although most museums have only limited information in English, almost all will offer group tours in English. Usually there is a fee of about 100 euros, but if you can find enough people to join you, it is reasonable, and definitely worth it! Some do have audio-tours in English.

Museums are usually closed on Mondays, unless a holiday falls on a Monday, but most are also closed for Christmas, New Year's and Rosenmontag so it is best to check their websites if you plan to go on a holiday.
