Meissen Porcelain Museum
The Museum’s permanent exhibition tells the story of Meissen porcelain on the basis of some 2,000 items. It is the only museum in the world to map the entire evolution of Meissen porcelain from the earliest beginnings in 1710 to the present day.
Changing special exhibitions often reveal hidden gems.

White gold meets historic pipes
A set of chime bells in Meissen porcelain already exists. It comprises 37 tuned bells and has hung in the tower of the Church of Our Lady in Meissen since 1929.
In an act unprecedented anywhere in the world, the historic Jehmlich organ in Meissen’s Church of Our Lady is now to have 37 pipes in Meissen porcelain added. To this end, a technology is being adopted that was first mastered by Ludwig Zepner, erstwhile artistic director of the Meissen State Porcelain Manufactory, who devised a method of producing organ pipes in porcelain in 2000.
A musical instrument and a traditional material – organ and porcelain – are thus set to be combined and brought together in a way that is utterly novel.
Sounds of tomorrow – for you to sponsor! More ...
Ten crates of porcelain return to the Meissen Porcelain Museum after more than two years in a travelling exhibition during which they covered a distance of 13,750 miles.
A total of eight museums were involved in running the exhibition, two from Germany, five from China and one from Japan.
Peter Strang – One-offs in porcelain
The modeller Peter Strang had a decisive impact on artistic developments at the Meissen Porcelain Manufactory in the second half of the 20th century. He joined the Manufactory as an apprentice in 1950 and, following academic studies, was active from 1960 in the Artistic Development Collective, where he authored various series of figurines, items of figural tableware, murals and, from 1977 onwards, a number of one-offs in Meissen porcelain.
Peter Strang turned 85 on 7 July 2021. The Museum of the Meissen Porcelain Foundation is marking the occasion by exhibiting some 30 one-offs by the artist in this special show.
Paul Scheurich. Porcelain modeller, draughtsman, graphic artist
Paul Scheurich (*1883 New York, †1945 Brandenburg) was one of the most important porcelain modellers in the first half of the 20th century. Our theme exhibition marking the 75th anniversary of his death delves into his life and work. Scheurich’s porcelain designs for Meissen and other German manufactories, augmented by rare bronze statues, drawings, illustrations and commercial art by the artist, yield a multifaceted portrait of the man.
