The collection of the Altes Museum, known as the Antikensammlung or collection of antiquities, is one of the most important collections of ancient Greek and Roman art in the world. Highlights include stone sculptures, vases, craft objects and jewelry from the 10th to the 1st century BCE. It is housed in Friedric Schinkel’s Altes Muesuem, a triumph of neo-classical architecture famous for its ionic columns and emblazoned with an inscription that can be translated as “Friedrich Wilhelm III has dedicated this museum to the study of all antiquities and the free arts, 1828”.
