Portraying the Baroque Dresden skyline of 1756, the panorama displays scenes from the Saxon court, as well as the daily lives of citizens.

  • Very very impressive. I recommend visiting to everyone. I'm interested how Great Barrier Reef looks like....
  • Gigantic panorama. Very beautiful and so many details to catch your attention for a long long time. Definitely a unique experience and more stunning then the version in Berlin.
  • Awesome museum that is different from the normal stuff out there. Really cool concept. Specially nice if you know the city!
  • There is probably nothing to see here if you're not interested in art or history of the area. All it has is the giant dome shaped wall painting of Dresden in the past which is very impressive if you appreciate art but entrance fee was too much for it.
  • Beautiful museum-theatre. We visited here in April 2015 and the panorama was Dresden right after the bombing. It was breathtaking, it looked so real!
