About the History of the Bode-Museum

For the very first time, the Bode-Museum itself is the focus of an exhibition. The Bode-Museum welcomes around a quarter of a million visitors every year, and its façade is one of Berlin’s most iconic images. However, the history of the building and the exhibitions it houses are often less well-known. And yet, the past and present of this building are intricately intertwined with the history of Berlin: just like Berlin, the Bode-Museum has survived the two World Wars, the Nazi era and the division of Germany, and is now confronting the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The special exhibition webpages allow audiences to explore the individual topic areas online. They have a range of material, including the info-sheets on selected works and a chronological overview of the history of the museum.

The exhibition is divided up into four central sections that define the museum:

A special exhibition of the Skulpturensammlung und Museum für Byzantinische Kunst, Münzkabinett and Zentralarchiv of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin

Important restoration and conservation measures as well as art-technological examinations presented in the exhibition were made possible by the generous support of the Ernst von Siemens Kunststiftung.
