Albertinum, Dresden

4.4
#9 of 30 in Museums in Dresden
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.

  • Beautiful building on the banks of the Elbe, completely renovated after flood in 2002. There are four sections in the Museum: the art gallery with important masters mainly German romanticism and contemporary, with some concessions to the Impressionists, Monet, Degan and others with lesser works, the collection of Greek and Roman vases, a remarkable collection of sculptures, especially Rodin and a section that will temporary exhibitions currently dedicated to Carl Lohse, German expressionist. Very large spaces and manicured, ticket 10 euro

  • A friend recommended that I go here even though it’s somewhat ranked low on TripAdvisor. Thank goodness I did because it was worth it. “Fun” collection with a great audio guide. Would recommend over m...  more »
  • It seems that fame Dresden gallery of old masters outshines other Museum of this city. Meanwhile, the Albertinum provides an opportunity to enjoy as an ancient sculpture, and works of fine artists of the 19-20 century. In addition to the rich collection of German artists, here you can see some fine works of Oscar Kokoschka, several works by Degas, including stunning sculpture of dancers, the work of renowned European masters of various schools. If you get modern art, you should spend a couple of hours to get acquainted with the outstanding Albertinum collection, exhibited in beautiful halls!

  • Slight mixed bag here- laod out very well, sort of chronologically. Beautiful artwork from Caspar David Friedrich, Degas, and many many more wonderful artists including lots of German artists lesser known outside of Germany. Some amazing and powerful pieces in this gallery for sure and you will discover some great artists here. However, there are also some "just a square" paintings. If you like that sort of thing, good for you. Not my cup tea though. You can basically breeze through the last few rooms if you're not interested in this sort of trite po-mo anti-art stuff. Still worth the visit though.
  • It has a good collection of paintings of famous artists. Totally recommend to visit, especially for those who love imressionism
  • I really enjoyed this museum in Dresden the most, but probably because I am generally a fan of the new masters, especially expressionism.
  • It has a limited collection and focused art pieces
  • interesting museum with nice exhibitions, though nothing really special about it. I would say it is a bit over rated. but the sculpture hall was very nice, also the security guy was very pleasant there
