Specialty Museum
A visit to Military History Museum in Dresden offers an insightful look into the human aspects of war, as well as the evolution of German military technology. The original building, which served as an armory, was built in 1873 and was a Nazi museum, a Soviet museum, and an East German museum before being closed in 1989. It reopened in 2011 with the striking metallic addition on the facade, which is meant to make visitors reconsider the way they think about war. Pass through the exhibit spaces divided into nine categories, such as politics, human aggression, and art in war. At the top level, you can walk along the modern structure, which is open to the elements and offers views of Dresden.

  • The Museum has a really great exhibition, however it is very dark and it's exhausting to read the many signs. Unfortunately, the staff was not very friendly. We were allowed to take the diaper bag with inside and feeding our babies with the bottle brought us dirty looks.

  • For a museum, it is very good and requires at least 2 hours for the visit. The exhibits are outstanding and very informative even for students. Take your time and visit all the floors.  more »
  • Wonderful Museum located in Neustadt. Introduction begins with the appearance of the Museum. You can get there by taking tram 8 and 7. 4 floors of exhibits telling about the life of the German army, very many interactives (lockers) and documentaries. Tickets 4-5 euros. Audio guides are available in English and German. Free cloakroom. The Museum also has a small restaurant. We recommend that you allocate around 3:00.
