There are so many things for you to gaze on here.Interesting artifacts, reconstructions of archaeological ensembles, magnificent artworks just to name a few.. The Pergamon museum houses three important collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin namely Collection of Classical Antiquities, Museum of the Ancient Near East and Museum of Islamic Art.I spent about 3 hours plus in the museum just by going around, exploring these three great collections and I wasn't really reading much on the descriptions.Instead, I was having fun taking photos most of the time and listening to the audio guide as I walked from one room to another.You'll be amazed by the things you'll see here.It's beyond your expectations!
I'm gonna write at least two posts on the Pergamon Museum.I'll start by writing about the first collection which is called the Collection of Classical Antiquities.This collection mainly display the Greek and Roman architectural structures.The main attractions in this collection would be the Pergamon Altar and the Market Gate of Miletus. Here are the pictures to show what this collection has to offer.. Enjoy!!!
