One of the most important collections of oriental antiquities in the world
Discover art and cultural treasures from Syria, Mesopotamia, and Anatolia from the last 6,000 years! The Museum of the Ancient Near East houses one of the most important collections of oriental antiquities worldwide. A very special highlight is the Ishtar Gate and the Processional Way of Babylon: See this ancient wonder of the world with your own eyes! The colorful reconstruction gives you an idea of how magnificent the original once was. In addition, the collection of the Museum of the Ancient Near East includes architecture, art, and pictorial works, including some 30,000 cuneiform script panels on which fragments of literary texts as well as legal documents can be found. The Museum of the Ancient Near East is located in the Pergamon Museum, which is part of the Museum Island and is, therefore, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The neoclassical building was built at the beginning of the 20th century by Kaiser Wilhelm II and houses the collections of two other museums in addition to the Museum of the Ancient Near East: the Collection of Classical Antiquities and the Collection of the Museum of Islamic Art. The Pergamon Museum is one of the most visited museums in Berlin and Germany - it became world-famous especially due to the impressive reconstruction of the Ishtar Gate and the Processional Way of Babylon.
