  • Has a magnificent collection of King Augustus the strong. It was the first museum in Europe. There are several rooms: the jewelry, bronze statues, weapons, war, a huge and wonderful tent and the largest green diamond that exists. I bought the tickets over the internet-it costs more £ 1 but pays off-won't start line and has to enter the time you want.

  • Must be seen, fantastic treasures, great presents. Very nice modern museum architecture in the entrance area before you enter the historic rooms

  • One of the most beautiful treasure Chambers that I was able to visit. The many exhibits were preserved thanks to the collecting passion of Augustus the strong. The rooms are so well equipped that it does not come out from the Marvel. See the Court of the Emperor and the cherry stone with many faces at, that is unique in the world.

  • Mind = blown. It takes quite a while to see it all. Gold, jewels, mother of pearls and porcelain. All used as material for a huge collection of masterpieces of functional art. I would give it 5 stars if I could make pictures. Seriously I'm not going to make my own jewerly form the pics when I get back home, sheesh.
  • Interesting place. But you need spend many hours for being there.
  • Heavyweight European museum. This treasure collection is mindblowing, no wonder it is referred to as the most important in Europe. Imagine what the treasures of the Saxon capital must have looked like before so many of them got destroyed in the War, if even what is left today is enough to amaze a well-travelled museum-goer. The containing building - the Residenzschloss - is beautiful in itself. All in all, a must for every visitor to Dresden.
  • A bit expensive to visit, but definitely worth it! A small tips, if u buy a museum card online, it not works here, and remember to print the museum card in advnce.
  • Excellent exhibition. Book your tickets on line in advance.
