Through the foundation of the Hygiene Museum, "Odol"-inventor Otto Lingner donated one of his mouthwash million to Dresden in 1912 all in the spirit of health education. Heavily targeted by bombs, the museum was swiftly rebuilt in 1945 and a congress hall was added in 1958. This grand hall was a major venue for the Dresdner Philharmonie until the opening of the Kulturpalast. The general restoration of the building took place in 2002-11 including the re-establishment of the old interior design. The multitude of possibilities offered by the new grand hall make the Deutsches Hygiene Museum an ideal location for musical experiments and little escapades further than just the framework of classical tradition.
