Permanent Exhibition in the Hunting Lodge Graupa

The color design of the museum in blue and purple tones is also atmospheric, which refers to the fact that Wagner was a highly emotional, lively man of the theater. In terms of content, the focus of the presentation is on the years in Saxony up to 1849 – Wagner's childhood, youth and school days, as well as his years as a conductor in Dresden. Later stages of life and the impact of his work up to the present day are also depicted.
