About
The Museum of Man. Just a stone's throw from Dresden's Frauenkirche, the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum invites visitors to experience people and their bodies. For over 100 years, the unique hands-on museum has been offering a look "under the skin". In addition, there are annually changing exhibitions on current topics from science, culture and society. The museum impresses both - from inside and from outside: Nowhere else in Dresden, the world-famous Bauhaus architecture can be experienced better.

A good place to spend time with your family and learn about your body and health issues.
Jan 2020
Quite interesting both for kids and adults. We could carry out different experiments - it was funny and useful. Spent there several hours - weren't bored at all.
Recommend to visit, ecpecially for families with children 8-14.
The only problem people might have - the descriptions were in German, so if you aren't good enough in German, you may feel a bit confused.

Surprisingly interesting
Aug 2020
When we decided to visit dresden driving back to base we were quite surprised to find this odd museum. We were expecting toilets and water systems and most of it had to do with humans and health, quite interesting some of the human organs and the weird exhibitions they had. Super cool, make sure to drop by instead of waisting time at primemark like the girls on our trip did. :D

Interesting and fun!

It's an important historic museum, and very informative and interactive (also a great modernist detour from all of the rococo architecture and art in Dresden). Easily accessible from the tram, it provides a friendly introduction to the history of science and medicine.

An excellent museum with good displays many of which are interactive and good for ( older) children. Very good information, you could spend a lot of time here. My husband who is a Doctor thought it was excellent and could have stayed a long time as it was the best museum of this sort he has ever seem. Educational but fun. There is parking nearby and a restaurant.

Interesting but there are better tourist options
May 2019 • Family
While the Hygiene Museum was a unique concept, interesting, well done, and included a variety of information about the human body. We ddn’t feel like it was the best option for spending our tourist time and money in Dresden. It was expensive, even with the Museum Pass which only gave a small discount. The audio guides were 10 Euro each, Even with the audio guide it didn’t hold our interest. There were several school groups visiting that were quite noisy. I would recommend any of the other Dresden museums before checking this one out.

Good museum for learning biology
Apr 2019 • Family
We really loved this museum. There were so many interactive exhibits.
My niece who is 18 years old and I had so much fun to learn the human body here.
Also, my son had fun in the kid museum, which explained 5 sense to him in details by providing games.

Important to visit to understand history
Jun 2018
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 the IBM Deutschland card sorter and consider what role it played in history.

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