4.4
#9 of 31 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!

  • A very nice collection of contemporary art. There are paintings, sculptures and more. There are large rooms containing collections of ancient works that are not on display but can be seen. Downstairs we really enjoyed some of the ancient Assyrian stone carvings. Don't forget about the combination tickets, which will save you a lot of money if you plan to see several museums.
  • A mixed collection of arts and history from different times. A was especially caught by the artwork 'Woman to go ll', and find this to be an important and very enlightening piece of art in a very male dominated world-of-fame. Also the different exibishions featuring paintings from Dresden and around gives a great insight in the dramatic history of the area.
  • The Albertinum is a good museum, even though their collection is so huge that it does get a bit boring and repetitive after a while
  • Clear, redesigned old museum building, with some must see classics and uptodate temporary exhibitions. Worth the time.
  • This museum seems to get a lot of very good temporary shows. I've seen a couple that were really fantastic. The permanent collection is very interesting too. If you like sculpture, the bottom floor is something to see. The building itself is beautiful and is centrally located in the old town and near good restaurants.
