In earlier Blender versions, the "Transform Properties" panel showed the object dimensions (i.e., bounding box: width, height, depth). Now, it just shows location, rotation, and scale.

Press N to bring up the Properties Panel of the 3D View, the Dimensions are listed below Scale in the Transform panel (bottom right):

  • $\begingroup$ In Blender 4.0, hitting "N" shows some tabs to the right (editor in Layout mode). To show the object dimensions, one has to click in "Item" tab. But this is not often enough as the corresponding pane is collapsed by default, requiring additional gestures: a) park the mouse pointer near the right border until the mouse curser becomes a left-right arrow; b) press and drag it to expand the panes. This is a bit hard to find. $\endgroup$ Commented May 16 at 14:02

While CoDEmanX's answer is still correct for Blender 2.8, you have to have the Modeling view mode (bar at the top) selected and be in object mode for the dimensions to appear in the transform panel. User serdar.sanri added this information here, however this question pops up first in the google search, so it might help to find this comment here, too.

As of Blender 3.0, Modelling view is no longer required.
