Dresden City Museum

In the Landhaus, only a few metres away from Dresden's Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), is the Dresden Municipal Museum. This building, erected in 1770-75 according to plans by the court architect Friedrich August Krubsacius (1710-1790), is one of Dresden's architectural showpieces. In four rooms, the permanent exhibition has over 1,000 items on display. More than twenty media terminals and many educational features create a variety of ways to engage with eight hundred years of history in Dresden. A number of film installations and a small cinema illustrate the changes that have taken place in the city over the past century.
