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

This museum highlights the important contributions made by Saxony and neighbouring parts of the Czech Republic in the field of transport. Exhibits are somewhat cramped but there is a fascinating display of unusual cars on the ground floor. This is complemented by railway locomotives, together with models of commercial vehicles, aircraft and ships. Well worth a visit!

Other than the train section, there weren't many explanations in English. None on the automobiles. Also, I was a bit appalled that despite paying for admission, I still had to pay 50 cents euro to use the ladies room. There are a few floors in the museum, no elevators that I noticed. Probably not a great place to visit if... More

I took my son here today and he almost wet himself with excitement when he got to the kids area. He was already satisfied looking at the old trains and cars but the kids area is something else. Model trains he could play with, scoot along cars and real traffic lights as well as comfy bean bags for parents or... More

Right in the historic square at Dresden, the Transport Museum is a little treasure. There are plenty of larger transport museums, but this one is of manageable size with interesting exhibits. I visited on "Museum Night," when Dresden's museums were open until 1am. It was packed with people, creating a terrific atmosphere of fun and excitement. The cars and locomotives... More

The first floor contains early cars made and design by famous Germans including Benz and Daimler and several locomotives. Upstairs are exhibits on aerodynamics. The most amazing area is the children's play area. What clever design. Children can ride little cars and go through tunnels. There are chairs for the adults and one table set up for toddlers. it is... More

Wonderfull place to take the kids. You can interact with almost everything. Most of the displays were only in German. They should translate! Recommended.

Don't expect vast displays of vintage vehicles but do expect that the great majority of exhibits will be something you have never ever seen before. Small numbers of cars, trucks, motorcycles, trams, railway engines and (pieces of) aircraft but all very very interesting. Currently there is a special exhibition on the Dresden-Leipzig railway featuring an engine very similar to those... More
