Technically impressive and deeply moving display. Worth getting a good look from every level of the tower - it's surprising how much the view changes.
I went there for the "Dresden 1945" exhibition. The main theme was the bombing of Dresden. The story is built up with some history and background (which is a must) and the music makes the experience even more impressive. It's a very intriguing place to visit if you are not only interested in the hard facts bit also an emotional experience.
