It has to be said, quite frankly, that there is no museum in Europe quite like the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum founded in 1912. It is something of a theme-based museum, an exhibition venue for showcasing issues relating to culture and society, science and art. Here you’ll find not just the permanent exhibition with the Transparent Woman and other highlights, but also a Children’s Museum where younger visitors have the opportunity to find out more, in a playful way, about how we explore the world around us using our senses. Then, several times a year, a number of elaborately staged special exhibitions also go on show. And all this and more just a stone’s throw from Dresden’s Frauenkirche in the city centre!
