The name of the museum is a bit misleading. It is the Museum of Man, respectively. human body - body structure, life, food, drink, sexuality, senses, movement, skin care and hair ... There is an opportunity to try many different experiments. We were satisfied (me, wife and daughters (12, 16). The younger daughter was the most satisfied in the "children's"... More

If you want to know, how your body works, if you want to show your kids why they should wash and brush teeth or just for looking through a complete glas body: Go there.

The name of the museum turned me off going there for quiet a while, but when a friend came to visit me in Dresden we took the trip to the museum. The exhibits deal with human life and there were lots of interesting things. Suitable for all ages and definitely worth a visit, even just to experience the building itself.

I think, this museum is the one what I impressed by the most in Dresden. (Well, I m not so interested in history). I don't know why the name is 'Hygiene' ,cause, it should have been 'anatomy' or something. You can find almost everything about human body and also about some animals. The animations/interpretations about birth were so amazing and... More

We'd had our fill of cathedrals and art museums and thought we'd try something offbeat; what better than a German Hygiene Museum! I can't say that after visiting I understand why it was named that; it does have some interesting exhibits (not sure what the theme was) and was not surprised to learn that the original director, a Jewess, was...

Interesting 1930's building in the park slightly away from the centre. A mix of old and new exhibits focussing on life. I've never seen anything else quite like it

it was closed when we visited on Monday, even though we got into the building - what we saw thru the locked doors looked interesting

When you look at this building it is difficult to realise that it has been completely rebuilt in exactly the original 1930s art deck style.As for the exhibition there are some English translations..Basically this is a science museum wishing to preach to you.Not sure I quite go along with this approach having paid to go in.

This museum is less about hygiene, specifically, and more about the human body as a whole. It has many interactive areas, and it also had an interesting friendship exhibition. What was very disappointing is that most of the exhibits are not translated to English. We missed a lot of the experience because of that.
