Albertinum, Dresden

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.

  • The new masters in the Albertinum Gallery is less than some other gallery. But it is incredibly diverse and varied. There are works by all the big names. Perhaps only one, but all the same. Impressionists, blaue Reiter, Picasso, Rodin. Currently, there is a featured special exhibition to the East German art.

  • Another must in Dresden, who like to visit museums. Rooms with Gerhard Richter, its glass panes and replicas of 48 celebrities. The romance collection is superb. Currently with a very extensive special exhibition to the East German painting in all its forms by the 1949-1989.

  • Entering the Museum by the Elbe side, there is only even slightly disoriented because there far and wide no cash can be seen. For this you must run one of the incredibly many stairs in this museum then come down. You bought the ticket, it may rise again all these steps (or use the elevator), to get in one of the halls. There you are asked again and again to his ticket, because each room as its own "Mini Museum" is designed. The top floor contains some interesting and very remarkable treasures of well known artists. Too bad that sometimes not so has the illumination of rooms. I found especially interesting however the first floor, where an exhibition on the East German painting in 1949 will be shown then. You can spend a lot of time and dive deep into the time and their emotions. In the sculpture exhibition, modern installations in addition to impressive Rodin - also an intense look are worth.

  • 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.
