On the 2nd level there is interactive play area for children, it looked fun! On the 3rd floor is a HUGE model railway.... unfortunately the day we went it... More

Trains, cars, trams etc all displayed very elegantly in a beautifully restored buiding in the centre of Dresden. Not a large museum but none the worse for that

I am a transportation buff and found the Museum a delight. It is on the small side compared to other City museum, but worth a look. One observation is that the model train exhibit is not open at all times. It only runs during certain times, and this is a must see for your visit. Check the times and examine... More

The kid was mostly interested in locomotives on the ground floor because you can touch everything in them. I enjoyed model of aerodynamic tube and feather falling in vacuum. Railway models on the top floor are great for all ages. Also there's a great kids corner with small push cars for kids under 4 i guess with a wending machine... More

This is well worth a visit with vehicles of all types, including locomotives and a penny farthing bicycle you can mount, if you are able.

On the ground floor is a selection of locally built cars, and a handful of local railway locomotives, along with models. next floor up is the aircraft gallery and at the very top of the building an O gauge model railway. Probably only really for the enthusiast.
