This is a fascinating, in-deapth exploration of the human body. There are lots of things to see, including the famous transparent woman and there are lots of interactive displays. Unfortunately I don't speak much German so could not really get much out of the displays, which are mostly in German. There was no audio guide and not much information in... More

As with many of the Dresden Museums a visitor needs to be fluent in German to fully enjoy the exhibition. Apart from the language obstacle this must be a unique display of medical matters aimed at preventing infections of all types and much of it is fascinating using models, photographs and computers. The entrance ticket allows for two visits and... More

Nice museum were you can make your own experiences of smelling, touching and more. This museum is modern, active but as well an historical view to medicine.

Perfect for all the family, daughters 5 and 6 years were excited. We spent 4 hours there, trying all those interactive things. Husband (who is a doctor) laughed that the exhibition is a bid morbid - pics of dead, organs and healthy nutrition beside, but for young (or little) doctors very nice. It shows, how human body works, there is... More

Was not sure what expect but it did excel my expectations. The Special Exhibition on waste was excellently done and very thought provoking. The rest of the exhibitions were really fascinating. My only fault was that there were some English explanations as you entered an area but that was it which was a shame because a lot of visitors spoke... More

This is an unique museum covering the human body, medicine, development - sounds dry but it is not, several interactive displays which gave us much amusement particularly the mind game. There is a reasonable amount of English labelling but we would have got so much more if there had been more - laminated cards in each room in a variety... More

Is always a place to visit with kids on a rainy day. You can spend 3-4 hours looking around. They have a little play ground for young kids. A little café in the lobby for a quick snack.

The name itself kept me thinking and finally decided to stop by as it's in the route of the hop on-hop off bus anyway. However, I wished all the display has English translation instead as with most translator machine, it's not all translated and after days of wearing headphones, my ears had gone a bit tired. It's worth an education... More

The children museum is more or less OK (everything in German, no English) but is definitely not worth the time which could be spent for much better things in Dresden. The main exposition is mainly for Medical University students and also no word in English
