Dresden Army Museum visit 2019

Recommended Posts


Thanks for the pictures.  The last time I was at this museum the main building was still under construction and the only part open was the small building behind the main one.  Is the main museum construction completely finished now?

It all looked completed when we were there, except for a souvenir shop in the main foyer which was closed for some reason.

There wasn't much WW2 stuff on display, but they did have a superb Luftwaffe complete flight Schellenbaum....

Some external photos of the museum.


I discovered the hard way that using the flash on my camera brought the wrath of a rather fierce looking female security officer...  🙂

Good photos, Bob! You have made me want to visit the museum, when I am in Dresden next time. Still, I think all the museum collections will not counterbalance the loss of the Diamond and Ruby Suits of the Order of the White Eagle, stolen from Grünes Gewölbe last year.

BTW: times do change. When I lived in Germany in 1990s it was impossible to see any items with Hakenkreuz symbols on display in public. Even in a museum! Now it seems very different indeed.

Thanks guys, and sadly Chuck, I didn't manage to get any photos of the Imperial Saxon Awards mate...

The Berlin Tech & Science Museum has no problems showing the swastikas on their various WW2 displays.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
