Arts & Museums
Richard Wagner only lived in the little village of Graupa for three months, but his former residence has now been decked out with period furniture and turned into a museum in honour of him. The exhibition contains a broad variety of information about Wagner's life and times, including rare photographs and priceless manuscripts. Visitors would also be well advised to take a walk along Lochmühlenweg to the bronze Wagner Memorial at Liebethaler Grund.
Although the was establish in 1963, it's history dates further back to 1876. Housed within the Schloss Pillnitz, overlooking the River Elbe, this museum displays European decorative artworks that were actually intended to provide inspiration to students of an older fine arts and design school. Several ceramic and iron works, furniture and textiles displayed are actually a part of the original 1876 collection. Apart from these, over the years, the museum has collected more recent artifacts and contemporary artworks as well. Open from May to October, this museum makes for an interesting visit.
