Dresden City Museum
Dresden City Museum
Dresden City Museum (Stadtmuseum Dresden) is the central city museum for the German city of Dresden. Its displays tell the 800-year story of the city and is the largest and most important of the Dresden State Museums (Städtischen Museen Dresden). Its art collections split off in 2000 to form the Dresden City Art Gallery, but both the Art Gallery and the Museum are housed in Dresden's Landhaus.
The Landhaus houses the Dresden City Museum. It was built between 1770 and 1776 and designed by Friedrich August Krubsacius using a mixture of baroque, rococo and classical elements. It was the seat of the Landtag of Saxony (Parliament of Saxony) from 1832 to 1907, when the Landtag was moved to the Ständehaus. The Landhaus is at edge of the Innere Altstadt between Wildstruffer and Landhaus streets, and between the Neumarkt and Pirnaischer Platz. The Polizeipräsidium and the Police Museum is next door. The Church of our Lady and the Kurländer Palais are also nearby. The Dresden Fortress Museum and the Albertinum are also nearby.
