Impressive collection of paintings, well organized. It is good that most of important places to see in Dresden old city are very close to each other so they can be visited easily

I wanted to visit this museum for ages. Finally I did it and was satisfied. The collection is very good. I like that this museum is not overcrowded with tourists and masterpieces. Highly recommended for art lovers.

This museum is good. Not the best in Europe, but there are a few big pieces. The audio guide is worth the small fee, and the museum is air conditioned (a great respite from the hot, humid weather).

One of the treasures of rebuilt Dresden, Germany, is the collection of art museums in the former royal palace. Our tour group had only about 2 hours there. Independent travelers might allow a full day. The museum complex was built in the early 18th century by a king who as a young man had visited Louis XIV at Versailles. A walk on the roof shows the similar design. The Old Masters museum is famous for Raphael's Sistine Madonna, but there are a number of other unique works, including one of the children of Charles I of England - all of whom served as king or queen. In the same complex are a museum of porcelain and an engineering museum with early 18th century drafting instruments and a clock automaton of a young bear which beat his drum on the hour. There is something for everyone there.
