#1 of 12 in Childrens Museums in Saxony
Deutsches Hygiene-Museum--a popular location for events, exhibitions, and educational programs--is also one of the most popular museums in Dresden, with more than 280,000 visitors per year. The Human Adventure exhibit is a permanent display that follows the human race, health, and the body through its long evolution, as well as questioning health's role in culture and society. The children's Museum of the Senses continues the adventure with interactive displays that give children an appreciation for their senses.

  • This was an interesting museum, not only for the special exhibit about race, but for the interactive exhibits.  more »
  • Visited with a group of people from the medical sector, modern interactive museum, time ca 2-3 hours, leadership was unfortunately too fast in the hau ruck mode. Also suitable for children

  • We have seen a number of museums like this that are based on an exploration of the human body and human nature. As such, it was well done, but certainly not novel. Had we known this, we would have tak...  more »

  • Fascinating in every way about the human mind and body. This original exhibits are still beautifully explicit, and the modern ones are all based on cutting edge research too. We spent hours in this museum instead of going into the cold wet park as planned. It's situated right next to the park and has a very good restaurant for lunch too.
  • The museum is really interesting and it also has many participative activities. The entrance fee is fair. The special exhibition about racism was also really well set up covering past and present. However, in the museum, more English translation is needed to welcome people from everywhere. Many information boards are only in German.
  • Fun place to go with kids in the 5 senses exhibit, but it could use a renovation or makeover. I would go again! Kids under age 15 I think are free, which is nice.
  • I was there for the special exhibit on racism and it was really well done, trying to make sense of history and its atrocities - interesting and thought provoking. There are free tours (we caught one at 4pm) and the guide gave some additional information and brought it all together. Definitely one of the better museums I've been in!
  • Interesting place. There are also interactive exibitions. Unfortunately only in German
