Albertinum, Dresden
(4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Albertinum is definitely a must-see for all artlovers visiting Dresden. the expositions are curated is such a way that they show the progression of sculpture and painting from Romanticism to the present. From this I got a better understanding how different schools relate to each other and enrich each other. I also discovered some new artists I really liked. In addition to the expositions there was a very interesting performance piece going on in the courtyard of the museum. This certainly added to the experience.
  • Just right next to Dresden’s Academy of Fine Arts, the Albertinum is a gallery dedicated to the modern art. The New Masters Gallery (contrast to the Old Masters at the Zwinger) showcases Romantic era pieces to present day art pieces by contemporary artists.
  • Fantastic large space museum! Great even for just a quiet moment with a coffee and some silence for the soul!
  • Trochu moc schodů
  • Phenomenal collection of c19th - c20th art and sculpture. Outstanding architecture.
