  • Very interesting Museum with many practical stations. We have spent over three hours and intensively looked at about half. Next time I would allow more time. The discounted price is totally justified for the offer.

  • The Museum is interesting from a historical point of view, offers entertainment but also younger children. As a building, it is also worth seeing

  • The exhibition is good, but almost all only in german. It's a shame, really.
  • Amazing museum with an interesting permanent exhibition about the body and impressive temporary exhibitions on day-to-day topics.
  • Interesting place but avg. waiting was 30 to 45 min
  • We utilized the kinder museum. The kids loved the sensory exhibits. It's worth the 13€ for two x adults and kiddos.
  • Impressive building and very well curated exhibitions. A must for every visit to Dresden!

Where to stay in Dresden

The Old City, or Altstadt district, is the city's historical center. You'll find a wide selection of accommodations around the major tourist sites. For an area that stays active both day and night, consider lodging in Aussere Neustadt, located northeast of the Old City. The Hellerau District has an urban and hip vibe, thanks to the fashionable young locals who populate the area. Boutique hotels contribute to the area's chic feel.
