Specialty Museum 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.
