Staatliche Museen zu Berlin – Preußischer Kulturbesitz
The Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (National Museums in Berlin) have fifteen collections, forming a universal museum with objects ranging from the beginning of art and culture to the present.
In their fifteen collections, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin preserve over fifteen million objects of art, archeology, and ethnology, ranging from Nefertiti in the Neues Museum and works by Caspar David Friedrich in the Alte Nationalgalerie, to magnificent prayer niches in the Museum für Islamische Kunst (Museum of Islamic Art) and the masterpieces of Surrealism in the Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg (Scharf-Gerstenberg Collection). Three famous research institutes and the Gipsformerei (Replica Workshop) are also part of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
The collections are presented at various locations throughout Berlin: Museum Island in Berlin-Mitte, the Kulturforum in Berlin-Tiergarten and in Charlottenburg, Moabit, Dahlem, and Köpenick. As of the end of 2019, exhibits from the Museum für Asiatische Kunst (Asian Art Museum) and the Ethnologisches Museum (Ethnological Museum) will be shown in the newly completed Humboldt Forum in the heart of Berlin.
