There are 2 Museums in this building we did the City part, very interesting and well put together, twice a month they do guided tours at no extra cost, definitely worth a visit.

I was surprised there wasn't more about the experience of the bombing in ww2 and the effect it had. Pretty good gift shop interesting cultural artefacts eg Johnny Cash poster.

Home to well-known masterpieces and many more amazing paintings, this is definitely a place to visit in Dresden. The surroundings are beautiful for a non-hurried walk too.

It was a great time, great art of all times, want to come again. If you are a student, you may get a special price but show your student card first.
