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

It was MUCH better than I expected! it was a little hard for speakers other than German. NO OTHER LANGUAGES. Other than that it was great! Don't go there if you get grossed out! but do not let that scare you! I would like agree with Norm T with the lack of English

Even if this museum had some actual interesting things on display, it wouldnt be any good because there is barely any descriptions in English. Which is extremely disappointing because i considered Dresden a sort of international city. Me and my girlfriend looked at it as a waste of time and I recommend that you dont go there if you dont...

Very old museum which to be honest was just boring. I guess if you're into body parts and illnesses you might find it entertaining but it needs some upgrading.

The cost for 1 adult is 7 Euros. If you are into learning about the body be prepared to spend at least 2 hours. Some of the exhibits are interactive. On the top was an exhibit but there was not much in English. Most of the other places in the museum had German and English. There is even a short... More

I was not expecting to spent 3 hours.... I was thinking that 1 hour will be enough. It's not enough for sure. If you have a child >4 year than you have to visit it. The museum contains very interesting hall for them. My daughter is small but she was also excited with the hall. Where are very interesting games... More

Having read other reviews, I expected an informative and entertaining experience even knowing that English descriptions were limited. However, these tired "plastic" exhibits do not appear to have been updated since Watson and Crick and many were clearly prepared well before the latter's genetic breakthrough in the early 50's. See this only if you'd be entertained by the quaintness of... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from this museum. It was actually quite good. The exhibits focus on human physiology, health, and modern medical history. Most of the exhibit descriptions and audio are solely in German, but are often self explanatory. The sexuality section may not be suitable for young children. It is frank and factual but not explicit. Good... More
