  • Amazing collection. I will need to go again one day as there was just to many pictures. I was hoping the gift shop would have a better book covering the collection but will have to settle with the small guide.
  • They have done so much work on this overall structure it is wonderful. The museums here are fantastic. You start with the marble sculptures and go up a floor to see a variety of paintings. The third floor has some incredible paintings of Dresden from the 1700s.
  • The museum has a very interesting collection of paintings, especially those of the Italian artists (there are some masterpieces that every Italian student has studied at high school). However, the ticket is definitely overpriced. My brother who is 19 was forced to pay the ticket at full price instead of reduced because he couldn’t prove that he’s a student, despite showing his ID card and saying that in Italy there’s no such thing as a student card for high school students. Quite narrow minded and unfair treatment from the guy selling tickets.
  • If you are in Dresden this is definitely a place to visit if you enjoy art. You can spend a couple hours wandering the halls and enjoying each painting.
  • Am amazingly curated gallery. Make sure to check out the masterpieces highlighted by the guide and stop by the cafe for some tea.
