The Camera Obscura of Dresden is located inside the museum “Technische Sammlungen”. The Dresden Technical Collections are a museum located at a site rich in tradition.

The building with its prominent tower – formerly a camera factory and place of business for Ernemann Works, later Zeiss-Ikon AG and VEB Pentacon – counts as one of the most meaningful industrial buildings of the past century. The museum possesses more than 30,000 objects from industrial, technical, and everyday history of the last 150 years: cameras and projectors, typewriters and sewing machines, radios and television sets, mechanical music instruments, processors, computers, household machines, scientific equipment, as well as numerous industrial products manufactured in the GDR.

In the 48-meter-tall Ernemann Tower, a café offers an inviting vista over Dresden.
