  • The Transport Museum has a long tradition in Dresden. We were always very happy to here. However, an adult ticket for € 9 is quite expensive. Especially when you consider that a part of the museum looks like a children's playground (Bobby car line), kid would have done too? While the experiment is a good idea. It is a pity that the exhibits on the theme of transport have been removed. Overall, it's still informative, but for us, the Museum in his character has experienced but a significant change. We hope in future planning for the Museum character is done again. At the moment but very families focus on small children, here a generation definitely concept would be nice.

  • There were four in the March 2017 (2 adults, 2 children) here. The price for the family ticket 15 EUR goes alright. The entry for a single adult is however 9 euro... The themes of mobility are strictly separated. Unfortunately it is whole in the field of aviation and not therefore in the road transport sector very dense exhibits. The navigation area is currently unfortunately converted and was therefore closed. It was pity that there were no restaurants offer up on some machines with cold drinks and snacks. Too bad also that the model railway in the upper floor only at very specific times can be viewed. Modern: You can download an audio or video guide (for the deaf) free of charge on the Smartphone. Positive also: wardrobe costs nothing extra. In short, taking the exhibits and the great buildings, would have to make significantly more can. It is worth but, at least with family ticket.

  • Here, as the name implies, you can admire ancient means of transportation. Where are the old cars and trains to highlight that I especially liked. Each piece of the exhibition there is a good description for example: engine values such as HP and speed...
