Happy Monday y’all!
Part II of our visit to the Museum Island here in Berlin is divided in the other three museums: Bode Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie and the Pergamon museum. Boy did we see a lot of art this day! But I did not get tired at all of seeing some of the great pieces of art in the world, just a little bit from the walking around…but still totally worth it!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did, and if you have the opportunity of visiting the Museuminsel, please do!!
The Bode Museum was really nice, it has a great collection of byzantine art and the building’s architecture is also beautiful.
A nice picture during our lunch break 🙂
The Pergamon museum is under renovation work, so part of its exhibition is closed. But we still got to see the Market Gate of Miletus, the Ishtar Gate, Processional Way from Babylon and a bit of Islamic art. All of that is very impressive, you feel so little among those great construction, I also loved the beautiful colourful carpets.
And my favourite one:
I was dying to visit the Alte Nationalgalerie, because there was an ongoing exhibition of Impressionism x Expressionism, probably my favourite two movements in art. We also saw its permanent exhibition, which was also amazing.
I have to tell you, that when I saw Renoir’s painting (Children’s afternoon at Wargemont) below…tears came to my eyes. I am not sure, but I have this memory in my head that when I was a child, my sister and I worked on a big puzzle that had that painting. And when I saw it in front of me, this memory suddenly came back!
I can’t even describe all the emotions I felt after visiting all of those museums, I am very thankful that I got this opportunity and hope to visit many more museums during my life 🙂
Have a wonderful week 😉
