Ever since the opening of the Dresden "Zwinger" in 1728, the "Mathematisch-Physikalischer Salon" has been the key feature in this iconic architectural ensemble. It houses one of the oldest 'History of Science Collections', which presents itself after an extensive refurbishment in a brand-new light and with exhibition space almost doubled. Artificial lighting and day lighting are specifically designed to the requirements of the interior finishes which allow sensible objects to be presented in a modern approach while keeping the notion of the original genius locii.
