Book Museum - SLUB

The Book Museum (Buchmuseum) of the Saxon State Library is a traditional literature museum in Dresden. The museum emerged from the Zimelienzimmer of the Royal Saxon Library. The exhibition of the Book Museum is located in the SLUB building and is divided into a permanent exhibition in the so-called treasury and an area for temporary exhibitions. The Book Museum documents more than a millennium of book history. The treasure room of the museum contains especially valuable pieces from the SLUB. The most important scientific and historical exhibit is the Codex Dresdensis, a manuscript of the Maya acquired by Elector Friedrich August II in 1739.
