  • Collections they have are really rich. Because of that I spent much more time in visiting this museum that I had expected to. Building itself it's very nice. 
  • You gotta admire the large foyer and the equestrian statue of Elector Frederick William before marvel at European-shame sculptures that we should do on the run forced in the past three days-not not forget mourning man Riemenschneider Room 212 - masterpieces

  • At the northern tip of the Museum Island is the Bode. I confess, my interest in the Bode has less to do with its collection, which is impressive no doubt but with its exterior and its position on the banks of the Spree.  The Bode holds collections of art and sculpture, many from the Byzantine period. Its collection might not be as vast or impressive compared to others in the region but the building itself is worth a visit. The main Entrance Hall for example holds the brooding statue of the Great Elector before a grand staircase.  During my visit I managed to catch the Holbein exhibition in the Bode.
  • There's a very large amount of interesting sculpture ! You need to go if you have the additional time in Berlin.
  • From all the museums on the island this one was the least interesting. The bulding itself is stunning, but the exhibition wasnt really interesting, but that ofcourse depends on personal taste.
  • Good museum and well laid out. A bit repetitive if you're not into medieval art.
  • Superb sculpture collection in a beautiful restored building which was heavily damaged in WW2. Also, an excellent display on coinage which draws on the Bode's unparalleled collection of over half a million coins.
