OK, I admit it, I'm a total transport geek and ex-aviation professional. Nevertheless, despite the fact I personally can't resist transport history, I do commend this museum. It is centrally located and easy to find. It has sections dedicated to trains, cars, motorbikes, bicycles, aircraft, and on the top floor a huge, impressive model railway lay-out. Irresistible!

We were in Dresden in outumn 2014. It is just awesome place, very interesting both to kids and grown ups. Very friendly stuff! It is allowed to touch and try many things.

the museum is spread over four floor and there are quite a lot to see .I was expecting more antique cars and motorcycles but was disappointed . They have a good section on planes and a flight simulator. Worth a visit when you have seen the other museums.

The museum was a fun experience for me, being a fan of the technology of cars, planes and basically everything else in the museum. Like another review said the museum definitely caters towards Germans. The exhibits have virtually no other languages posted, though there was an audio guide to take you through the museum. I would have given it 4... More

I'm a car, aviation, and technology fan. This place was a joy to visit. There is an entire room full of railroad cars and equipment, and a tot road/tram play area with traffic lights, etc. What fun! I was a little surprised that despite all the cars in the automobile section there were no Audis and no Trabants! How could... More

Marvellous collection of all types of transport, and it's worth checking, before you visit, at what time the model railway is going to be run - it's a must see !

This museum is right in the middle of the old town and doesn't take very long, but if you are a transportation buff, especially of trains, it's worth a stop.

Great place to go with kids. Second floor is almost all dedicated to them, ships you can sail yourself, trains you can play with, aerodynamic room to learn. Good place to take your family to, because each of them will find something fascinating for themselves. One disadvantage- non German speakers will not be able to read a lot of descriptions... More
