The Museum Island, located in the arm of River Spree, is a must for anyone who wants to learn more about human history in Berlin. The Museum Island, which is listed as a World Heritage site has composed of five museums (Altes Museum, Bode Museum, Neues Museum, Pergamon Museum and Alte National Galerie), and holds precious treasures of more than 6,000 years of human history. Here, history and art perfectly intertwine with each other, with only a few steps away from the Ancient Egyptian civilization to the Eastern civilization.

Ishtar Gate of the Ancient Babylon

By virtual reality technology, one can personally “walk” along the Grand Parade to the Ishtar Gate. Magnifying the animals on the blue glazed bricks, it can be seen that each crack is clearly visible. Read the story of the Ishtar Gate, you can discover how buried-for-thousand-year debris came to Berlin, and became a pattern as it is now. Moreover, a 3D model with a 360°view will allow you to imagine the once glory of the Ancient Babylon.

Nefertiti, the first beauty of the Ancient Egypt

Like being personally in the museum, one can appreciate the colored bust of Nefertiti with an all-round view. In addition, you can also listen to detailed audio explanations, as well as view the details of its face, neck, etc. Besides the beauty of the statue, you can feel the traces left by a time of more than three thousand years.

In the Conservatory by the father of Impressionism

The authentic work of the French Impressionist painter Edouard Manet now lies in the Alte National Galerie silently. It is hardly possible to find any trace of the past “stigma” from this 115 * 150 cm canvas. But the online channel allows you to see the details by magnifying it, and listen to the professional interpretation of this painting through the video.

Architectures on the Museum Island

Apart from the collections in the museum, architectures on the Island are of great appealing. In normal times, we can only appreciate the above-head dome. Now we have chances to look at the details closely and read the stories of these architectures.
