Museum Quarters


The Museum Island

Built between 1830 and 1930, this ensemble of world-famous museums, comprising the Old Museum, the New Museum, the Old National Gallery, the Bode-Museum and the Pergamonmuseum, displays six thousand years of culture and history from ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt to Classical Antiquity to 19th Century European art.


Cultural Forum and Potsdamer Platz

The museums clustered in and around the Cultural Forum (Kulturforum) offer a wide range of artistic forms and media, including paintings, drawings, prints and decorative art from the Middle Ages to the Twentieth Century.


Around Charlottenburg Palace

Charlottenburg Palace is at the centre of its own museum quarter. The former garrison building opposite houses the Museum Berggruen, the Collection Scharf-Gerstenberg featuring Surrealist art, and the Bröhan-Museum.
