After a period of closure lasting more than six years, the Mathematisch-Physikalischer Salon (Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments) has re-opened its doors to the public. One of the oldest collections of historical scientific instruments in the world is once again ready to showcase its collection in rooms within the Dresden Zwinger that have regained their splendor.
The design of the exhibition underscores the architecture of Zwinger and sets the excellent collection of the Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments into the baroque ensemble of pavillons and orangeries. The halls themselves are kept in white to contrast with the elegant, dark and shiny surfaces used throughout. Through the interplay of architecture and exhibition, an elegant and harmonious total picture is created. At the entrance of each hall, a characteristic and extraordinary exhibit offers an impressive eye-catcher that provides the visitor a spatial and thematic introduction as well as transition to the individual exhibition areas.
