We were only in Dresden for an overnight stay, so we bought tickets online for Friday evening--the ticket is good for both the historical and new green vault but only from 6-8pm. I was afraid that wouldn't be enough time, but it was plenty. After...More

For the Old Green vault (Baroque Collection): No jackets even though it is winter, no cameras (but phones OK!?), no bags including small hand bags. The lockers are just the standard museum lockers with weak locks and no monitoring. You have to go through some...More

We aren’t really museum people but enjoyed this collection of gold, ivory and other collectibles including amazing clocks from the 1600s

We were amazed at the craftsmanship that those clockmakers used in those days. They also work in ivory and gold. The treasures within the green vault or priceless.

It is incredible to believe that these treasures could have been created and collected by an individual. A must see for anyone interested in very expensive curios.

The exhibits are simply astonishing and the craftsmanship outstanding. We took a VIP ticket which meant we could ignore the rules about time of day or day of the week and just go on the day we wanted to. We'd taken a ticket which covered...More

You had to have timed tickets (we bought in advance). Then you went double airlocked double doors, two at a time. There was just too much stuff in there; it got old after a while. I mean, how many diamonds, rubies, etc. can you look...More

What a place! Especially if you are a lover of unusual artifacts, you have to see this museum, both the old and the new. The old takes about an hour and a half to two hours with a really good audio tour that is provided...More

I never realised that there is a time limit on how long you can stay in the Green Vault. I’ve been twice and never had a problem taking as long as I want.

I would buy the combination ticket. You could easily see everything, including the Green Vault in a half day or several hours.
