#4 of 31 in Museums in Dresden
A panoramic painting inside a former gasometer, Panometer Dresden shows the city of Dresen as it might have appeared in 1756. The 360-degree painting, created in 2006 by artist Yadegar Asisi, is 27 m (89 ft) tall and 105 m (344 ft) around. Portraying the Baroque Dresden skyline of 1756, the panorama displays scenes from the Saxon court, as well as the daily lives of citizens. A 15 m (49 ft) high viewing platform allows you to take a good look at the various scenes' details. Additional exhibits explain its creation and give historical context to enrich your visit.

  • If I should give something the top score under my visit to Dresden then I will give it to Panometer. I go there with train from central station and walked the few meters to the museum. I used 9 minute...  more »

  • Absolutely to recommend. Very interesting to see the former Baroque Dresden from this perspective. Think that even the Dresden 1945 absolutely interesting.

  • transported back into a time capsule and allowed to see it 360' degree in different high levels. it was worth the time and money, also how it was made, the thought process of the know how. loved it.
  • This museum seems to me rather too expensive for what it is. It would be ok (let's say it would deserve 3.5 stars) if it would cost half the price. It is rather small, and not as interesting as the 4.6 stars it has in Google would make you think it would be. Unless you are really highly into history (I'm a big fan of museums in general, history museums included, but this was not enough), better to climb up on some of the high points of the city (a church, for example) and enjoy the current view.
  • It was amazing there to see a 360° animated picture of Dresden in the middle Ages. There were also some information banners about history of Dresden. But they change exhibitons proximitly every 9 months, so you will probably see another exhibition. But the another exhibition will maybe not have something in common with Dresden.
  • It is an amazing art work, a true 360° panorama, with sounds and lights simulating a day in the destroyed Dresden. It makes you feel sad for the city, but astonished by the great work. It is not for families, as it requires some understanding of the history and the atmosphere is quite tense. But perfect for history lovers and art lovers.
  • Stunning views. Recommend to take the free shuttle back.
