The collection is nice but overall the quality of the pieces is not the tops. We visited the Meissen Factory's collection and found the artistry and variety of the pieces to be far better than the Zwinger's collection. The Animal room is pretty good but...More

While you may not know much about porcelain, once you have visited this place, and read the details, you will appreciate how important it was to collect and show off. A multitude of wonderful examples.

Not very easy to work out the flow of this collection, but had lots of nice pieces and presentation style for pieces was good. In a beautiful setting, so look out the windows as well.

I enjoyed our visit. Even though I am not that "into" porcelain, I still found myself enjoying the beauty of the items. The west side was a bit too warm to enjoy as the summer sun was beating into the beautiful windowed corridor. Had it...More
