The museum has a very interesting collection of sculptures, and they are displayed in a way it really tells a story, not simply lying around. I recommend because sometimes all museums have the same painting styles and in Albertinum you finally see something different, so it is a very pleasant visit.

The Albertinum is a most impressive building as we found when walking along by the side to the entrance. The downstairs foyer is open, bright and spacious and a very relaxing space. The audioguide was an informative accompaniment. The more modern sculptures are fabulous. At the beginning is the charming Little Dancer by Degas. The extent of the works by... More

I am a fan of Carl Spitzweg and Lovis Corinth and went to the Albertinum specifically to see those collections. Alas, the rooms holding those collections were closed for 'maintenance'. Despite my disappointment, I took in the rest of the museum. Much of what I saw was not to my taste, but those works were nicely displayed and in quantities... More

The Albertinum was a short walk from the Neumarkt, the area I was staying in. I had purchased a Dresden Card (a good investment), so the admission was free. The Albertinum's collection is housed in a former arsenal building from the 1500's. The museums collection includes work from the Romantic period up to the present. Many of the exhibition rooms...

We went especially for the Caspar David Friedrich paintings but the rest were good too. For the authentic experience you could go out to Saxon Switzerland the following day (Bad Scandau or the Bastei) to see the inspiration. Also enjoyed the small but interesting sculpture collection. If you like Gerhard Richter there is a collection of his work together with... More

This time we went for Max Liebermann`s paintings. Up to the 2.nd floor using the stairs we combined art and work-out. Passing the impressive stairs we gained access to the hanging of Baselitz first. but a complete wall of Max Liebermann took mre of our attention than the line art of the contempory German artist of Saxonian origin.

Although not a fan of the genre, modern paintings are well-displayed and lighted. Sculpture gallery is a highlight

Most enjoyed here because my sons love Rodin, Picasso, Degas and other German masters but we loved more M'O than this.

We went through an interesting traveling exhibition, relating contemporary artists to their inspiration by Constable and others. Then we found the museum's main treasures - post-impressionist and later German masters. These are really worth the visit. We did not have time to visit the sculpture galleries, which also have a great reputation.
