Visiting this museum (and in particular the special friendship exhibition which is showing until 1 November 2015) was one of the highlights of our trip to Dresden. The friendship exhibition was very different and creative and explored a number of philosophical questions about the nature of friendship. All of the exhibitions were available in English or German. It is a... More

This museum has the most fascinating science exhibition, "The Human Adventure", featuring numerous interactive displays. The scope of the subjects covered; from love, friendship, emotions, drugs and addiction, modern medicine, diagnostics and genome. Most are interactive with further details in reference drawers. A notable exhibit called the Transparent Woman, allowed us to explore several aspects of the human body and... More

The children's area was great, my 8yo had a lot of fun running around and exploring the five senses. The special exhibition on body parts was quite different, with a number of different and sometimes confronting/challenging elements as you go through to the waxwork models of body parts used at the turn of the 20th century.

We really enjoyed this museum. It was quirky but definitely worth a visit. Good level of translation into English and some interesting exhibits. They have a special exhibition on at the moment on friendship which was different!

This is a great museum and great value! I seem to remember if you go on a Friday morning or something it is free (ask tourist info about this!). If you are in Dresden on a rainy day it is a great museum to go to if you are interested in humanity and science. Lots to see and would engage... More

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.
