Humboldt Box, Berlin

3.9
#49 of 168 in Museums in Berlin
A project of the Berlin City Palace, Humboldt Box is a futuristic museum that displays the city's collection of Asian art, ethnographic artifacts, and Prussian objects. The octagon-shaped, glass building is surrounded by manicured lawns that are covered with residents' picnic blankets on fair-weather days. A restaurant with a terrace overlooking the lawns is on the attraction's top floor. Enjoy a glass of German wine there after touring the eclectic collections inside the large, open rooms.

  • This equipment was a sensational idea. With a few floors, houses some rooms that promote the Instituto Humboldt and feature what is being done. On the top floor there is a small restaurant with a terrace overlooking the Lutsgarten and consequently to the Berliner Dom and Altes Museum. Access is given by both elevator as by stairs. It is quite interesting to be able to observe this area of Berlin from a vantage point. The site also has an area of enterimento.

  • Free to remember how the reconstruction of the Château with sculptures in model is envisaged

  • We were mainly in the Humboldt box because we wanted on the panoramic terrace. It was however closed due to an event last Sunday. There was no warning, that gave only the security staff us in the 3.OG. You can rely so, that the terrace is available. Otherwise, the small exhibitions in the box are very interesting. As I me the model of the new Humboldt Forum looked at, directly an employee came up to me and explained to me in detail the layout of the new Museum. You can forward so to 2019, when Berlin has a new Museum, which supposedly can keep up with the natural history museums in New York and London and offers also great venues for concerts. Up to the opening of the Humboldt box is a nice idea, the exhibitions so I found personally but to different/random. First, it concerns the new Humboldt Forum, on the next floor and others war refugees, then the current eating habits of children around the world and early models of child car seats etc. May be that these exhibitions and switch and have also a sense, good, I found the current mix but strangely little related to the future Humboldt Forum. The box also offers a great program for kids who can make guided tours and programs with their parents, including small craft activities :)
