I wrote a review of this museum that was rejected because it was "political". I'll try to avoid that again. Simply, if you are in Dresden, visit this museum. It has important historical artifacts that you can evaluate for yourself. Be sure to look at...More

This was an interesting museum, not only for the special exhibit about race, but for the interactive exhibits.

We have seen a number of museums like this that are based on an exploration of the human body and human nature. As such, it was well done, but certainly not novel. Had we known this, we would have taken in other attractions.

This museum needs a serious makeover and upgrade. This was nothing more like an old oversize biology book for me. Depressing building and unimpressive. I fled disillusioned.

I visited the museum while I was on a study abroad program. My professor explained that we were visiting a hygiene museum so we all assumed that we would learn about pretty much being clean. It was a huge surprise when we walked into a...More

The name of this museum is somewhat misleading as it is not really dedicated to hygiene but to health care, which I don't think are the same. It is similar to, but smaller and more to the point than, London's Wellcome Collection. The admission price...More

We really enjoyed looking at the exhibits in this museum and wish there were more museums like it in other cities but our visit was quite spoiled by the fact that there are almost no explanations for any of the exhibits in English; consequently we...More
