Berlin’s Museum Island can be the best place for those who like history to spend their holiday. Scottish historian John Strong once wrote that it will take several days to see the periphery of thousands of artists rescued in Berlin’s museum. At that time, this museum was on the River Spree: the museum of the ancient world, built by Carl Frédric Sinclel in 1830 and the first public museum of Prussia. Then following the New Museum in 1852, the Old National Gallery in 1876, the Budd Museum in 1904 and the Paragon Museum in 1930.
Berlin’s Museum Island, originally a 19th-century art and archaeological collection, contains sculptures like Ishtar Gate, Pergamon Bayer, Market Gate of Milpitas, Nefertiti of Bronze Age and Golden Haar of Berlin. After recycling, the collections that were scattered in East and West Berlin were gradually resuscitated. As a result of the loss of the war in the museums, objects stored in elsewhere are restored to their original places. For example, the new museum turned into a debris for nearly 60 years, until it was restored and rebuilt by the British star architect David Chipperfield. A new building, James Simon Gallery, will soon serve as the main entrance to the entire Museum Island. An archaeological promenade will be spatially and thematically linked to various museums and galleries and will be providing tremendous panoramas to a worldwide culture.
