An island of museums

The Museum Island is an island of museums. It has been a part of the UNESCO world heritage since 1999. It is located on an island in the Spree River in central Berlin, which is located in the Mitte district. It gets its name from the many museums that can be found there. The site was founded by Frederick IV of Prussia in the late ninetieth century and started off as a residential area that was devoted to science and the arts. The collections were made public after the First World War, and now the foundation is managed by Prussian Cultural Heritage. These collections were divided during the separation of the two Germanys, but now they are together again. Some of the museums that you will find on the island are the old Museum (Altes Museum) that was built in the 1830s, the Old National Gallery, the New Museum (Neues Museum), the Bode and Pergamon, which is one of the most important museums of ancient art in the world.

Museum island

This is situated between the rivers Spree and Kupfergraben channel, and consists of five buildings: The Altes Museum, the Neues Museum, the Alte Nationalgalerie, the Bode-Museum and Pergaminmuseum. The five museums reflect the history of museums and German culture. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. I have been in the Altes Museum and the Pergamon. You can also find Berlin Cathedral, a jewel. I recommend it.
