Tours of the Museum Island (Museumsinsel)
The Berlin Museumsinsel became a World Heritage Site
in 1999. Managed by the SPK (Foundation Prussian Heritage), the Island's five
historical buildings house archaeological and art collections from the nineteenth
century. The Island's first structure was the Altes Museum, built to the designs
of Karl Friedrich Schinkel. The Altes Museum opened to the public - the first museum
to do so in Prussia - in 1830. The Neues Museum, the Alte Nationalgalerie, the
Bode-Museum, and the Pergamnonmuseum followed. A 1999 master development plan
called for the restructuring of the museums and the collections divided during the
Tour of the Island and Visit to the Alte Nationalgalerie
Built to designs realized by August Stüler from 1866 to 1876, the Alte Nationalgalerie is considered one of the most important example of nineteenth-century museum architecture. The museum houses nineteenth-century paintings and sculptures, including works by Casper David Friedrich, Adolph Menzel, Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne and Claude Monet.

Tour of the Island and Visit to the Altes Museum (Including the Egypt Museum and Papyrus Collection)
With a lucidly ordered exterior and an interior structure of great precision, the Altes Museum counts among the most important architectural examples of Classicism.

Tour of the Island and Visit to the Pergamonmuseum
Built between 1910 and 1930, the Pergamon Museum accommodates three separate museums: the Collection of Classical Antiquities, the Museum of Islamic Art and the Museum of the Ancient Near East.
