From 5 May 2020 the Skulpturensammlung up to 1800 at the Semperbau am Zwinger is open from 11 to 17 (closed on Mondays). The Skulpturensammlung from 1800 at the Albertinum will be on show again from 19 June. Please note the special opening hours.


The illustrious holdings of the Dresden Skulpturensammlung range in date from classical antiquity via the art of the Renaissance, Baroque and Expressionism down to the 21st century, from Polycletus to Giambologna and Permoser, and from Rodin and Lehmbruck to Glöckner and Cimiotti.


At the Albertinum the Skulpturensammlung from 1800 and the Galerie Neue Meister have been presented as one museum for art from the Romantic period to the present.
