The museums in Dresden are generally excellent. Paintings are perfectly restored and well labeled in German and English. A trip to this museum will immediately recall that Dresden is considered to be the Florence of the North. Don't miss the Vemeer.

It is a massive collection of art. The large painting of The Lady in particular is a master-piece, besides other significant works.

We visited Dresden for the first time last july and went unplanned to this extraordinary art gallery. The painters that are there present with their amazing artwork is worth every minute spent there and the size of the gallery is just right for a relatively fast walk through, especially if your children come along.

Good signage, excellent brochure to use as guide. Part of a major museum complex, pay for only the parts you wish to visit.

Not that interesting for the kids but great pictures and collection of German, Dutch and Italian artists. Very similar in style to the "Uffizien" in Florence - definitely a historic connection there.
