Three Museums—One Collection: The New Displays of Greek, Etruscan and Roman Art in Berlin


Research Institute Lecture Hall

Berlin is home to one of the most important collections of classical antiquities—and the single most distinguished museum of ancient architecture—in the world. Every year, nearly two million visitors come to marvel at the Pergamon Museum and traverse the rotunda of the Altes Museum for a glimpse of the "Praying Boy" on the city's famous Museum Island. Andreas Scholl, curator of the antiquities collections for the state museums of Berlin, presents highlights of the Greek, Cypriot, Etruscan, and Roman antiquities collections in the Altes Museum, Neues Museum, and Pergamon Museum, following a complete re-installation in 2011. He introduces numerous artworks that have been restored and newly displayed after being off view for decades.
