BERLIN MUSEUM - BERLIN - MUSEUMS IN BERLIN GERMANY

Berlin History MuseumBerlin Museums - It should come as no surprise that a city like Berlin has much to offer in the way of museums and exhibitions. With such a chaotic and turbulent past, it is only fitting that Berlin has a section called Museum Island.

Museumsinsel (Museum Island) is Berlin’s first and oldest museum complex, dating back to the 1830s. It includes the Altes Museum for classical antiquities, the Museum of Antiquities and Byzantine Art, the Alte Nationalgalerie - Picture Gallery, the Bode Museum, the Neues Museum of Egyptian and pre and early History, and the Pergamon Museum collection of classical antiquities.

Museums in Berlin cover a wide variety of areas, including:

Ancient World and Antiquities
Art Design and Architecture
German History and World War Two
Jewish Culture in Berlin
Transport and Communication
Gay and Lesbian
Theatre and Music
