Three museums in one, all brimming with ancient artefacts.

Located on Museum Island, the world famous Pergamon Museum is home to an extensive collection of artefacts from antiquity and important archaeological findings. It’s one of the most popular sites in Berlin. The museum was built between 1910 and 1930 and actually encompasses three museums. The collections include the antique collection, the East Asian collection, the Near East Museum and the Islamic Museum. The most impressive and significant aspect of the museum is the enormous altar from the Zeus temple in Pergamon, which dates to the 2nd century BC and remains remarkably intact. Visitors can actually climb the steps and walk inside the structure.
