The museum is excellent, with the tour taking longer than we expected due to the amount of information being provided at each exhibit.

Very interesting, learned a lot. The musuem shop could offer more and be better arranged, but the staff were excellent.

Well worth the tour!

This excellent museum deals with the history of clockmaking, generally, and the history of the clockmaking community of Glashutte, in particular. I found a most interesting display of how Glashutte was stripped of its clock and watchmaking equipment in 1945 as part of Russian reparations, but rebuilt, by memory, from scratch to become a watchmaking centre of East Germany and, since reunification, a producer of luxury watches I can't afford.
One gets there easily by railway from Dresden - a short, pleasant trip with one change of trains.

A good balance between exhibit, explanation and interactivity. I expected a simpler exhibit, but one can see the amount of effort that has gone into creating this exhibition.

Even for a non watch fan like myself, I got pulled into the watch appreciation fan club. I loved the huge round table that had a projection of the different watch functioning parts, it was brilliant and should be visited just for this.

Perfect and a must go even if it's a Long drive from wherever you are in Germany. Visit the kebab place next door too!

What shall I say! Please make a trip to come to The Foundation "German Watch Museum Glashütte" if you are in Dresden for few days. This museum is definitely one of a kind especially for german watch making and its development in horology including world wars affecting on industry. Very impressive with the info (displayed clearly in english and getman) and all arranged in a typical german modern manner. Free audio guide in english or german or czech. We were very lucky to have a guided tour with the museum director, Mr Reinhard Reichel who has immerse experience in german history and horology. It was lovely surprise and is worth to make the effort to visit, even I am not a fan of watches at all. You can also try to book other tours on their workshop and manufactory with local watch makers like Glashütte Original in advance. Highly recommended but give yourself few hours or a day.

This museum is not faraway from Dresden in a small town named the same as famous watch. Nice house in the centre. An attractive presentation of history, how it everything started with famous watch. We spent two hours in this museum. Great time Shame it was Sunday and Glasshutte shop beside the museum was closed. We were ready to buy a watch here.
