Explore the fascinating world of the famous MEISSEN porcelain factory and discover the various steps of porcelain production. Over centuries, the human hand has remained the main tool at the porcelain factory. The demonstration workshops invite you to experience how the famous MEISSEN porcelain takes shape before your very eyes. See close-up how cups are made and how many individual pieces make up a typical figurine. Observe the principal stages of the manufacturing process: molding and throwing, the crafting of figurines (“repairing”), and both underglaze and overglaze decorations.  The tour of the demonstration workshops is accompanied by an audio guide. The Museum of MEISSEN Art takes you on an enticing journey through 300 years of porcelain history. Numerous pieces from the year 1710 to the present day, drawn from the manufactory’s vast stocks, are displayed chronologically to illustrate design developments throughout the ages.

We spontaneously decided to take a guided tour and booked a tour online. That worked perfectly. We still had half an hour to look at the exhibition before the tour started, which was interesting and worth seeing. The last time I visited the manufactory was in 1995, when it was still in a different position. Everything has become much more modern and bigger after all these years. You can also see that during the tour, digitization has also found its way here. But it was very interesting, you get a good insight into the history and creation of Meissner porcelain as well as the production steps. Highly recommended.

I haven't been to the porcelain manufactory for many years now. Wanted to see the current products. Personally, I didn't like the new products, colors and models that much. But this is a matter of opinion.

A very informative and interesting exhibition about Meissen porcelain. Special appreciation of all employees involved in the manufacturing process! Now you also know how to classify the high price.

Es war wunderbar, die Führung da durch war mega die Dame hat alles super erklärt. Und die Ausstellungsstücke einzigartig und bewundernswert.

Very impressive and worth seeing exhibition. Tickets were accepted with no problems.
