  • There sure is a lot of treasure here, it would be terrible if something happened to it. But jokes aside, when I went there there was a ton of treasures and such. I am not sure what happened to it...  more »

  • A wonderful place to visit so many historical artifacts can be found here. When visiting this place I am so recommend to buy a museum card as there are multiple museum's inside Residenzschloss (Dresden castle) and in nearby areas. The museum is situated in the heart of the Dresden also public transport like tram can be used to get there. The Museum is beautiful and you can get a audio device to get to know more details about certain artifacts in audio by simply entering the artifact code Number. A must Visit place in Dresden.
  • A very large and varied collection of jewelry. The collection of Saxon electors and kings has more than 4,000 unique works of art. In the new halls of the Green Vaults, nearly 1,100 pieces of jewelry are represented, about 3,000 items are on display in historical halls. Due to limited space, the museum’s exposition includes only the most famous and valuable masterpieces of jewelry. The name "Dragon Treasure Cave" would be very suitable for this museum. Although everything looks very beautiful and interesting here, the "green room" itself with its jewels on display is really amazing. Yes, you must see this amazing place. You can take an audio guide in different languages.
  • To see the unique items, built for thousands of work hours can be overwhelming! There were pieces of art that I doubt that will be replicated ever again. Advice: use the audio gear that they give at the entrance, it really makes a difference!
  • Great exhibit but if fell short of our expectations because we could compare it with a similar but much richer treasury in Moscow, Russia. Still the visit was well worth the price of the ticket. Audio guides are included at no extra cost in a few major languages. Prepare to spend about an hour here (in the Old Vault alone).
  • I only visited the old green vault. Based on the glorious reviews, I had expected a lot more. Yes, there are a lot of valuables, but not too many memorable art works. Plus the staffs were unfriendly. If you are short of time, skip it altogether. I enjoyed the Old Masters Picture Gallery a lot more!
