Museum of Saxon Folk Art

in detail

This museum, founded in 1897, houses approximately 27,000 objects illustrating the folk art of all regions of Saxony. Since 1913, the collection has been on display in the Jägerhof, a building dating from 1568, in Dresden-Neustadt.

The three-storey exhibition shows a wide variety of folk art creations, mainly of Saxon origin. On the ground floor there are painted cupboards, trunks and beds, ornately decorated household objects such as pots and baskets, indigo-dye cloth, ceramic and tin kitchenware. The first floor displays include Saxon and Sorb folk costumes, lace and crochet work, and a large selection of carvings, toys, Christmas decorations and miners' folk art from the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains). Special exhibitions taking a closer look at particular branches of folk art, or at the folk art of other regions, are held regularly on the top floor.
