Welcome Reception at the Verkehrsmuseum on October 23, 2017 19:00 - 22:00
We invite you to an exciting time journey through the history of transport at the JOHANNEUM – Dresden's oldest exhibition building. On an area of 5,000 square metres (53,820 square feet), the collection offers an impressive variety of exhibits including unique originals, imposing models and fascinating rare vehicles.
You will discover how mobility has changed through the centuries and how modern means of transport have fundamentally influenced our society.
The Transport Museum is dedicated to a wide range of topics in the field of mobility. It houses exhibitions that cover all four modes of transport under one roof. The Dresden Transport Museum (founded in 1952) has its origins in the Royal Saxon State Railway museum founded in 1877 as one of the oldest technical collections in Germany. The Dresden Transport Museum is housed in the former royal stable building used by Saxon kings for their coaches and horses over 400 years ago.
