At the first place I wanted to visit this Palace because it was bought bz August the Strong for his porcelain collection. It is a piece of architecture from hs time. First we went to seen the part where is the etnographical museum and saw beautiful carpets, tapestries from the Middle East such as“Suzani” – large silk embroidered fabrics from Central Asia, so-called Turkish Towels from the Ottoman Empire, knotted carpets from Eastern Anatolia and sequinned embroideries, a printed cotton fabric and fine wool embroideries from Persia.Both of us most admired The Dresden Damascus Room - reception room from a luxurious home in Damascus was used for welcoming guests. The richly decorated wall and ceiling panels are worked in the style known as Turkish Rococo. In the other part is the State Museum for Pre-History, where we saw two intersting exhibitions - Fossil Art and the second was about the Life of Wolfs.

The Japanese Palace is a large palace that has curved roofs that may resemble Japanese architecture to some, but really has Baroque architecture. The building was started in 1714 and enlarged between 1723 and 1733. Among the architects who worked on it were M.D. Poppelman, J.C. Knoffel, Z. Longuelune and J. de Bolt.

It has two museums now, one is the State Museum of Prehistory and the other is the Ethnological Museum.
