Not spectacular but quite impressive. Lots of beautiful from the Renaissance era. Dont forget to check out the cupids painting, Raphael, van eyck collects Dont forget to take the audio-guide with you. The stories behind each painting are very fascinating

Of course, of course, you should try to catch the opportunity to visit it. In case you want to see only famous Rafael's masterpiece it will take you not a lot of time, but all the works are great and its a part of world culture. I advise you to look at Madonna without moving left or right when you... More

I think it is a small collection of paints, but some of them are really unforgetable. B.e. Rafaels, Rembrandts and Duerers...and so on

This is one of the great museums of the world, but be warned it is undergoing major renovation at the moment, so what you see is only a fraction (albeit the best fraction) of its collections. I'll be returning when the renovations are complete and all the works are back on show.

I find this gallery tricky to review. On the one hand, I wasn't bowled away by the collection. I don't regret our visit, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend certain pieces (the Sistine Madonna, a lovely Vermeer, Holbein's portrait of Charles de Solier and Bellotto's paintings of Dresden among them), but I passed through several rooms where nothing was especially...

With my wheelchair bound husband and another relative I visited this otherwise excellent museum on June 21st 2014. We were politely guided around the outside of the building where, after the arrival of an operative, a wonderful elevator arose from the ground! This took us to the lower floor where we purchased our entry tickets, submitted them to the official... More

This is a small art museum with some great collections. The admission is included in the Zwinger ticket, which is about 10 euros. Raphael's Sistine Madonna is definitely the most famous one in this collection and I it alone is worth the price of the admission ticket. Upstairs, you can also find some paintings of Dresden in 1800s. It is... More

We were delighted!!!! Very nice Museum! Small, but it has a very good collection. They should play a classical music to build a comfortable place! Totally worthy!

Certainly worth visiting. There are some construction activities nearby and the emplacement of the exposition is interim but nevertheless, a very good collection. The original of the Sistine Madonna is breath-taking.

Have you ever wanted to view a painting created by an artist you absolutely love? The Sistine Madonna by Raphael with the two sweet cherubs has long been a family favorite and, when I visited Dresden, it was at the top of my list of things to see. Standing in front of this masterpiece was magical for me as was... More
