Education and outreach
Who were all the ancient gods and what were their stories? What was daily life like for ancient Romans or Etruscans? What stories were being told in the sculpture frieze known as the Pergamon Altar? With its monumental architecture, worlds of the gods, portraits of rulers, and objects from everyday life in the ancient world, the Antikensammlung (Collection of Classical Antiques) gives visitors insight into a wide range of life and thought in the ancient world.
Visitors can explore ancient art and culture in the Altes Museum, the Pergamonmuseum, and the Neues Museum. These museums offer audio guides, guided tours, workshops, and other activities that can accompany your exploration of the collections. All three museums also offer private guided tours. In booking your appointment, you can select a time as well as a topic that interests you.
There are many exciting ways for children to discover the ancient world. They can find out what ancient cities looked like, learn how colourful antique art used to be, try on ancient garments, and even take a turn playing ancient games. They can also delve into the worlds of ancient gods and heroes, make the kinds of sketches archaeologists make, or create mosaics like the ones that adorned palaces and magnificent villas thousands of years ago.
The Antikensammlung showcases its unique objects at the Altes Museum, the Pergamonmuseum and the Neues Museum on the Museumsinsel Berlin.
Addresses, opening times, admission prices, and public transport links are available on the individual pages of these museums.
