Albertinum, Dresden

#10 of 35 in Museums in Dresden
Art Museum · Museum
A modern art museum in Dresden's historic center, Albertinum presents both paintings and sculptures from Romanticism to the present. In addition to the main collection, the museum features the Galerie Neue Meister (New Masters gallery), with works by Otto Dix, Vincent Van Gogh, and Claude Monet, and the Skulpturensammlung (sculpture collection), which form two interconnected spaces. The building dates back to 1887, but it suffered damage during 1945's World War II bombing and during 2002's floods. Reopened in 2010, the modernized facility allows you to gaze into the building's depositories through glass-fronted displays, giving you a look at the museum's inner workings.

  • Nice museum with very interesting pieces. The places is big, comfortable, clean and it is not so crowded. It is pleasant to make a tour around it in peace and in calmness
  • The museum has an interesting collection. However, it's in need of major curatorial revamping. No guiding, no historical order, no description to introduce each section. Art in different levels in need of major humidity and temperature control, examples: Egyptian mummies and a 3 meters paintings of Napoleon 1 at room temperature. I was looking for art tags all the time. They could also work on the welcoming part which was non existing.
  • I really enjoyed the place and spend nearly three hours in there. I consider the Albertinum the best place I've been at so far. No place else I got the opportunity to be just an inch away from the historical paintings or other artefacts. Further more, admission fee is more than fine.
  • Has few important pieces and also pieces from Picasso, Manet, Monet, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Klimt, Rodin, Basquiat , Caspar Friedrich (probably they are on loan). Overall a nice museum to spend time if you are interested in art. But I couldn’t understand why they advertise with an original-copy of Rodin’s The Thinket when there is plenty of originals from important artists listed above.
  • Very good variety of art. Good cafe. Nice place
