Toys from childhood. Objects from fairy-tails. I didn't plan to visit this small museum. But occasionally visited it and was very glad. Especially for girls - the collection of wonderful dolls. Really nice feeling to come back to own childhood - some memories, impressions. Really recommended place.

We went to see this museum, because it was on our way and we had the Dresden Museums Card, which gave us free access to it. After we visited it, I must say that I would have bought a ticket anytime, no matter if it would have been more expensive that the Zwinger Palace Museums at one place. We discovered... More

This Museum has interesting examples of furniture, household items and clothing. Additionally there are fascinating examples of wooden carved goods, originally hobby items, but later commercially produced. Also there is a collection of toys and puppets - some of which can be tried.

This museum is known for its massive, impressive puppet collection ("Puppentheatersammlung"), but currently only one small room of puppets is available for public viewing. The rest are in storage. Huge disappointment for us. We were told by museum staff that a new museum is being renovated/built now, and it will not be ready until 2016. (They did not know what... More

We had an unexpectedly wonderful experience at this museum which holds two delightful collections: folk art and puppets. It was great fun to be able to actually play with some of the puppets, and we very much enjoyed the span of puppets and puppet theaters on display. As well the two floor filled with folk art hold many amazing objects,... More

I love folk art museums and seek them out where ever I go. This is easily one of the best I have ever been to...a magnificent display of wooden painted furniture, antique textiles and costumes, ceramics and wrought iron, furnished rooms. There is the most incredible display of antique toys, automated religious tableau, clocks and marionettes. All beautifully displayed and... More

If you love antiques, folk art, dolls, puppets, hand painted furniture and costumes, then this is your museum. Fantastic collection- including an amazing mechanical doll theater depiction of the life of Jesus, and a huge collection of hand-carved and painted marionettes spanning over 150 years of creativity. The building that houses the collection is unique and wonderful. The only downside... More

On the Neustadt side of the Elbe, a twenty minutes walk from the Zwinger, this three floor museum displays a great collection of works, including rustic handcrafted furniture, costumes, historic toys, Xmas paraphernalia, woodcarvings, metal forged items, miniatures, and much more. Unfortunately, the famous puppet collection was on display elsewhere on the day we visited; had we not been to... More

After viewing the Old Masters at the Zwinger we took a break and went to the Neustadt. While there we happened upon the Saxon Folk Art Museum that also includes a collection of toys and puppets. While relatively inexpensive, this museuim was included in our museum pass (The Dresden City Card) making entry a "no brain" decision. The museum is... More
