The Dresden State Art Collections are among the most eminent museums in the world. A total of 14 museums offer a unique variety of themes and objects. Historical sources date the founding of the princely art collection in the residential palace of the Elector August of Saxony to the year 1560. August the Strong was a notable art connoisseur. His systematically ordered galleries, which were open to select circles even then, form the core of the Dresden State Art Collections’ artistic treasures. The museum management system robotron*Daphne is a key tool for all of the SKD’s employees. So far approximately 1,000,000 objects have been catalogued.
