Altes Museum
Altes Museum, Berlin

The Altes Museum (Old Museum), is one of several internationally renowned museums on Berlin's Museum Island in Berlin, Germany. Since restoration work in 1966, it houses the antique collection (Antikensammlung) of the Berlin State Museums. The museum was built between 1823 and 1830 by the architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel in the neoclassical style to house the Prussian Royal family's art collection. The Egyptian and Papyrus collection on the upper floor includes the world famous bust of Queen Nefertiti – a name which translates as the beauty who has come - dating from 1340 BC, one of Berlin’s top highlights.
