Altes Museum (Old Museum)

Built between 1823 and 1830, the Altes Museum, or the Museum of the Ancient World, is one of five museums that make up the famous Museum Island in central Berlin.

A permanent exhibition at the museum called “New Antiquity in the Old Museum” showcases a number of pieces of art and sculptures from ancient Greek and Roman times.

There are references to Rome within the architectural design of the Altes Museum building; the 18 iconic columns, the atriums and grand staircase are all elements to be admired.

Entry to this Museum and all of the others on Museum Island is free to Berlin Pass holders. Other museums include; Bode Museum; Pergamon Museum; Neues Musuem.
