A Museum is a overall a great place to be and in the case of bad weather it might be an intelectual shelter, however in the case of the Hygene Museum man has to wonder. After a looonggggggggg que to go in, partly because of the bad weather that brought more visitors than expected, and mainly because there was only... More

the permanent exhibition in the hygiene museum is amazing and very educating. But it was disappointing that many of the explanations were in German only... The other exhibition on the migrants was superb!!

We took a long walk along through traffic laden main roads to reach the museum which is in an unimpressive modern building. The exhibits were old fashioned and seemingly mainly aimed at children - we were almost alone pushing buttons and gawping at parts of the human body until we reached the area on relationships/ sexuality where there were so...

This is a great place to see if you love the human body and have more the a few days to spend in Dresden. It is fun for all ages and is very interactive. Does have a lot of walking and stairs. There is something interesting for everyone.

We very much enjoyed this museum and its interweaving of historical background and the progression of displays mixing the history of the museum with contemporary health issues , such as Ebola, sexuality, and other topics. Definitely worth a visit.

The museum has some detailed exhibitions about human body, some are pretty basic and out of date especially the one on nutrition, but some are modern and interactive. We particularly liked the animation of the style of walk of men and women, where you can set old, young person, tired, happy person, thin or fat person style of walk. However,... More

If you're interested in younger health's history and vivid examples of progress you should take a look at this museum. Also special exhibitions are captivating to my point of view. Big plus: the ticket is valid for two days! For sure you can see most things in 2-3 hours at the exhibition, but it's optimal e.g. you're located in the... More

Exhibits are interesting (family, birth, diseases, human body etc), but there are very few english explanations (special exhibit was Immigration which was interesting and everything had english explanations). If there were more english it would be fantastic, in this state it is recommendable only for german speakers/people who dont mind only looking.

I didn't found the hygienic part, but this museum is very interesting. There are a lot of thing about the human body, diseases and stuff like that. Also, there is always some itinerant exhibitions. The day I was visiting the museum there were a exhibition about immigration in Germany and other about dancing. It has also a children's exhibition. Don't... More
