If you don't speak any German the permanent exhibit might be a bit tough, most of the information is only in German. Overall that exhibit seems a bit outdated in how it is displayed but it does have some interesting old pieces of medical equipment. The temporary exhibits seemed a lot livelier, though I only had the time to really... More

Not really a 'hygiene' museum - more a biological one, but very interesting. A few of the rooms were closed during our visit but the rooms we did see were interactive, informative and interesting. Most descriptions were in German and English and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The cafe was also very nice for a light lunch.

What I really appreciate is their admission price - one ticket is valid for 2 days, even though the price is really low (3 € student, 7 € adult). Visitors can use locker room (you need coins to use locker, but it is free) and there is no problem to just go between 2 exhibitions to drink or to eat... More

It's quite big but well organized museum. However 99 percent of the text is in german and only some very basic descriptions are in English. Could be a hit more. It has definitely some potential for international guests which could be better used. I left a bit disappointed.

Biology was the one branch of science that I never studied and this may have changed my mind if this was available when I was a youngster. The themes are presented in a logical and not quite so yuchy manner as I was expecting. SWMBO loved it as she was in her element, this is a ... and that is... More

If you are interested in science based museums. This one is for you. It may also appeal to history minded people as there are some aspects that cover the history of the museum and how related aspects of the museum were looked at at different times. It is a good sized museum with a good gift shop. There is food... More

We've been there for about 3 hours. The prices are, for the size of the museum, really low. There are several things which can be explored also by younger children. Quite interesting, even if you are not a museum fan.

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

I love this museum, it has an amazing posibility to get to know the human body more in detail, and really understand how it exactly works. There is a plenty of interactive exponates which you can move and play with . You can easily spend here a whole day.

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
