Housing three museums in one: the Collection of Classical Antiquities, the Museum of Islamic Art, and the Museum of the Ancient Near East
The Pergamon Museum in Berlin Mitte is part of the Museum Island Berlin and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The neoclassical building was built at the beginning of the 20th century by Kaiser Wilhelm II and today, it houses the collections of not only one, but three museums: the Collection of Classical Antiquities, the Collection of the Museum of Islamic Art, and the Collection of the Museum of the Ancient Near East.
Special highlights are the pieces of ancient architecture such as the Pergamon Altar (180-160 BC); the Market Gate of Miletus from around 100 AD; the magnificent Ishtar Gate and the Processional Way of Babylon from the time of Nebuchadnezzar II (6th century BC), and the Mshatta Façade (Jordan, 740s). The Pergamon Museum is one of the most visited museums in Berlin and Germany - gaining worldwide recognition due to the impressive reconstructions of these building ensembles.
