Named the Albertinum to honor Saxony's King Albert who converted this 16th century building into a museum between 1884-1887, this collection displays art from the Romantic period to the present day. While the Albertinum suffered less damage during WWII, flooding of the Elbe River in...More

Great collection of modern art in a very old building. Beautiful architecture. Situated adjacent to the Bruhlsche Garden if you a looking for a quiet interlude.

A friend recommended that I go here even though it’s somewhat ranked low on TripAdvisor. Thank goodness I did because it was worth it. “Fun” collection with a great audio guide. Would recommend over many of the higher rated museums in town.

The Albertium has risen from the destruction wrought by the floods of 2002. It contains the Galerie Neue Meistersinger and a small sculpture Hall. The period covered is from the 19th to 21st century. There is a good collection of Caspar David Friedrich which commences...More

We visited the museum on a cold January day and spent a great afternoon inside. The building itself is very modern and spacious, but still cosy. We travelled to Dresden to see an exposition “Art from the Romantic period to the present day”. We found it...More
