Located on Museum Insel with a number of other museums is the Berlin Alte Nationalgalerie, or Old National Gallery.
Unfortunately the museum was heavily damaged during World War II, and many of the artworks either burned or were stolen by the incoming Russian forces. In addition to this, many of the works created by Jews were destroyed by the Nazi's as they were seen to be degenerate.
However since the fall of the Berlin Wall and reunification in Germany, many hours of restoration work have gone into the museum and much of its previous artworks returned. These renovations were completed in 2001 and the museum has since then been open to the public.
The collection at the Alte Nationalgalerie focuses on 19th century paintings and sculptures which are displayed over three floors.
