The Pergamon Museum was constructed by Ludwig Hoffmann between 1910 and 1930 based on Alfred Messels blueprint. The three-wing-building replaced the small one, which was located on the same spot but had to be taken down due to building defects.
Today it is one of the most visited museums in Berlin and accommodates three different museums.

Description Pergamonmuseum

The museum consists of three different museums:

First there is the Collection of Classical Antiquities (“Antikensammlung), which among others consists of one of the world’s most important collections of Greek and Roman art.
The second one is the Museum of the Ancient Near East (Vorderasiatisches Museum) which was founded in 1899 and is one of the most significant museums for oriental relics. Thanks to the opening of the Pergamon Museum in 1930 the collection was presented independently for the first time. The main attractions were constructed in the sixth century before Christ and consist of reconstructed Babylonian monuments like the Processional Way, the Ishtar Gate and the facade of the throne hall of King Nebuchadnezzar. Another very famous attractionis the “Tower of Babel”, which was built as a dedication to Marduk (the chief god of the city). The third museum hosts a permanent exhibition and called the Art of Islamic Cultures. The exhibition displays artworks with origins in the area stretching from Spain to India but primarily focusing on the Middle East including Egypt. The Display shows artwork of Islamic peoples which date back between the 8th to 19th century, like bookart, jewelry and art handicraft whereas the architectural decorations is particularly worth seeing.
