Japanisches Palais, Dresden

2.3
Japanisches Palais is a Baroque building in Dresden, Germany, on the Neustadt bank of the river Elbe. Built in 1715, it was extended from 1729 until 1731 to store the Japanese porcelain collection of Augustus the Strong that is now part of the Dresden Porcelain Collection. However, it was never used for this purpose, and instead served as a library. The palace is a work of architects Pöppelmann, Longuelune and de Bodt.The Japanisches Palais was partly destroyed during the allied bombing raids on 13 February 1945, but was reconstructed in the 1950s and 1960s. The final reconstruction work continued until 1987. Today, it houses three museums: the Museum of Ethnology Dresden, the State Museum for Pre-History and the Senckenberg Naturhistorische Sammlungen Dresden.

  • Decentralized palace near the Augusto Bridge and the exhibitions are not on par with the other of Dresas.-

  • In the rich Museum landscape in Dresden, the Japanese Palace goes down frequently. The building itself is very beautiful and wonderful to explore during a walk on the river Elbe. Unfortunately hold the exhibitions, which presented the Senckenberg Museum in a small part of the building, not always that what the posters and title promise. Already the dinosaur exhibition was very clearly laid out some time ago. You must plan not more than 30 minutes for the current exhibition "Monsters and myths". The promised search for clues is hardly for the origins of sea monsters and legendary creatures. For this work the exhibits sometimes unintentionally comic... What a pity.
