Transportation History

A very good collection of forms of transport through the ages, particularly in the 19th & 20th centuries. The exhibits are in well lit halls and well displayed.

Visited with my 3 kids, 8, 5 and 3. We spent 3 hours at the museum, lots to see and do. Very interesting to read about the history of Germany and their transport history. The only thing that was missing was a gift shop, would liked to have bought a souvenier.

This museum is well presented, with sections on cars, motorcycles, trains and flight. The layout is excellent, well set out, the signs all have English translations. There are a couple of rare exhibits that are well worth seeing for them alone. I loved the set up of the mechanic's garage and little additions, such as road signs, petrol signs and... More

Not just for petrol heads this museum - it explains in great detail (and in English) the history of most modes of transport - from bicycle to Aeroplane - however the tram and boat sections where under re-development when we where here. They do have a very large model railway on the top floor and also some original early steam... More

A well presented museum , particularly of road vehicles. The rail section is a little disappointing although the vast model railway on the top floors worth a visit.

This is a well staffed a well laid out museum. Each floor has a little something extra. Exhibit labels are in German and English. Fascinated by the old cars and bicycles. Pity we just missed the model train running but time was pressing.

If you want a bit of a change from palaces, art and fine architecture this takes a couple of hours to look round. Everything from bikes, cars, motorbikes and trains.

My husband and I were in Dresden over Christmas. We stayed at a hotel across from the Transport Museum. We decided to go in. The entry was 9 Euros and there was no discount for seniors. There was also no elevator that we could see to get to the top floors. The exhibition was on the small side. There were... More

What a disappointment. This being Germany, land of great museums and transportation, I expected this wonderful building on the square to yield a treasure trove of historical planes, trains, automobiles, boats and bikes. Instead, I found a musty, hodgepodge collection of almost random (but mostly DDR-era) cars, motorcycles and trains jammed into the ground floor rooms. The upper floor was... More
