About the Museum

Situated at the northern tip of Berlin’s Museum Island, the Bode Museum is home to the Sculpture Collection and the Museum of Byzantine Art and the Münzkabinett, one of the largest coin collections in the world. When the building opened its doors as the Kaiser-Friedrich-Museum in 1904, its founders intended to show painting and sculpture side by side, a method of curating that was unheard of at the time. The sculpture collection includes examples from the early Middle Ages to the late 18th century, including Donatello’s ‘Pazzi Madonna’ and impressive works of German Gothic sculpture by Michel Erhart and Tilman Riemenschneider, while the Münzkabinett features rare coins and medals from the 7th century BCE to the present day.
