  • Roused us Member of our group, as Professor of physics, and finally we went 19 people! Delicious the same Museum building, in the heart of the city and next to the Frauenkirche. It has a very long and interesting collection of means of transport, with particular emphasis on wagons and public vehicles. It has interactive activities for younger guests, a beautiful small souvenir shop to watch or to relax.

  • Reluctant as I was to attend.. my husband is the. Ar nut, I went along and had a fantastic time. Well worth the 8€ entrance fee. All types of transport are covered, starting with the horse and ending ...  more »
  • This museum is a must for families with Kinderrn. Here is something for everyone. It's all about bicycles, car, aircraft and trains. Anywhere short explanations! Super there are several stations where they could be active (Fahrradparcour, build paper airplanes, ships and more) family ticket cost €18 (2 adults and up to 4 children)

  • The staff were pleasant, and I like the organization of each floor being a different mode of transportation. But there could be more information provided in english. I felt like I was just walking around looking at things most of the time and not learning a whole lot.
  • One of the best museum in Dresden! Its wide, magnificent, well organised collection will gratify anybody. For sure, it's a must-visit place if you in Dresden. Notice, if you want to rid off your bags and outerwear during the visit there is a cloakroom.
  • No cafe inside, only vending machines. Opportunity lost - there is a captive audience of parents stuck watching their children go around and around in the play area (which is admittedly a lot of fun for the kids). Impressive model train set too.
  • Always great for kids and interesting for adults especially with the audio guide...
  • Great place for parents with children, knowing all kinds of transport and its history, at the 3rd floor is very nice place for little children, we spent there nearly four hours.
