A unique collection of sculpture and Byzantine Art
The Berlin Museum Island is a must for anyone interested in art: built by the Prussian kings from 1830 to 1930, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most important sights of Berlin. The Bode Museum is part of this museum complex.
The Bode Museum, named after the art historian Wilhelm von Bode, was opened in 1904 as the "Kaiser-Friedrich-Museum" and served as an exhibition venue for Bode's collection of sculpture and painting. However, the concept of the museum goes back to a woman: Crown Princess Victoria had written down her idea for the museum in 1883. It was Bode who finally realized the idea. The innovation was that the collection was staged differently than in traditional museums - sculpture and painting were presented side by side for the first time.
Today the museum houses the Sculpture Collection and the Museum of Byzantine Art. In addition, the collection is supplemented by paintings from the holdings of the Picture Gallery and the Numismatic Collection.
