Bob,

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?

Regards,

Gordon

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.
