Museum Berggruen

Berlin - The Museum Berggruen, open since 1996, is situated in the Western Stόler building opposite Charlottenburg Palace. This building, originally designed by August Stόler to house the stables of King Wilhelm IV, was once home to the Antikensammlung (Collection of Classical Antiquities) from 1960 to 1993 before the Antikensammlung was reunified with collections in East Berlin and moved back to Altes Museum on the Museum Island. The conversion of the Museum Berggruen was executed after plans by the architectural office Hilmer und Sattler.  The Museum Berggruen is about to gain an extension to its building. Due to extensive renovation work, the museum will be closed until Spring 2013.   Link: www.smb.museum
