Berlin Museuminsel Altes Museum

The Altes Museum (German for Old Museum) is a museum building on Museum Island in Berlin, Germany. Since restoration work in 2010/11, it houses the Antikensammlung (antiquities collection) of the Berlin State Museums. The museum building was built between 1823 and 1830 by the architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel in the neoclassical style to house the Prussian royal family’s art collection. The historic, protected building counts among the most distinguished in neoclassicism and is a high point of Schinkel’s career. Until 1845, it was called the Königliches Museum (Royal Museum).ABMUS_IMG_5980ABMUS_IMG_5981 ABMUS_IMG_6039 ABMUS_IMG_6037 ABMUS_IMG_6036 ABMUS_IMG_6030 ABMUS_IMG_6027 ABMUS_IMG_6026 ABMUS_IMG_6022 ABMUS_IMG_6021 ABMUS_IMG_6018 ABMUS_IMG_6017 ABMUS_IMG_6014 ABMUS_IMG_6011 ABMUS_IMG_6010 ABMUS_IMG_6008 ABMUS_IMG_6004 ABMUS_IMG_5995 ABMUS_IMG_5992 ABMUS_IMG_5990 ABMUS_IMG_5989 ABMUS_IMG_5988 ABMUS_IMG_5986 ABMUS_IMG_5985
