Unless you have a special interest in porcelain you will be bored after 20 minutes of this one and a half hour experience. Other sites in this pretty town are more interesting.

The Meissen china is world renowed as the first of its kind in Europe.
We visited the museum and did the guided tour including a short film on the history of Meissen and 4 craftsmen demonstrating their exquisite technique requiring years of training on the job. Adjacent you find an outlet shop with discounts of 20-50% on products of 2nd choice but we couldn´t see any difference.
The museum of Meissen Art offers a variety of old and new arty interpretations of the Meissen style. We found the Meissen Zoo, which was put together with china animals, special lighting and sound effects, very entertaining. However I would not recommend visiting the exhibition with children.
There is also a cloakroom, a souvenir shop and a restaurant on site.
