Exploring Dresden's Mathematical Gallery
Since your ticket to the Old Masters Gallery in Dresden covers all the galleries in the Zwinger, to check out the Dresden Mathematical Gallery. We didn't know much about this place before heading inside, but we were pleasantly surprised at how exciting this exhibit was.
The Mathematisch-Physikalischer Salon or Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments contians within it a myriad of historic clock and various different scientific instruments. But the incredible part about this museum is that these items not only serve a functional purpose but also are some incredbily beautifully artistic creations to feast your eyes on.
We got to see polished burning mirrors, refined timepieces and me-chanical devices, monumental telescopes and astronomical models. The beautiful thing about all these creations is that although they are a gorgeous peice of art, each of them were used to collect information and gather knowldge.
My favourite room in the entire gllaery would have to be the Glibes of the earth room. In here you'll find gigantic, historical globes featuring the Earth, the Heavens, and even the Moon and Mars. The astronomical maps were so incredibley illustrated, and the old globes were fascinating to study. It is amaziing to see how we used to see the world and how different parts of it were uncovered over time. Like the blossoming of a flower.
