Museums in Dresden

Edit This

Dresden is a place filled with great architecture, a strong history, and beautiful landscaping, covered in museums featuring wonderful art. It is one of the most important museum cities in Europe today. The Semper museum building is home to the Old Masters Picture Gallery, which houses its most famous painting, Raphael’s Sistine Madonna. If the history of Dresden interests you, the Dresden City Museum may be a good fit to your itinerary, offering artwork relating to the military history to the civic history.

The Porcelain Collection and Armoury

The Porcelain Collection and Armoury are the home to a variety of art pieces, from Japanese and Chinese porcelain to decorative hunting weapons. The Mathematics and Scientific Collections give visitors a close look at scientific instruments as well as offers a glimpse into a time when science and art were not two separate principles.

Dresden museums are the homes to artwork ranging from the 18th to the 20th century, including artwork that has been discovered only through extensive renovation of destroyed structures, as is the case with Dresden’s Renaissance Residenzschloss, or “palace.” Beyond the artwork inside the museums, the architecture of Dresden museums is an artwork in itself. Many of the buildings serve as standing reminders of Dresden’s history of art, war, and intellect.

Museum Admissions

The museums are relatively inexpensive to enter and are less expensive when purchased as combination tickets, although some special exhibits do cost extra.  The museums are conveniently located throughout the city, which is only a short trip from the Dresden Airport, a two-hour drive from Berlin, Prague, and only 30 minutes from Leipzig.
