Museum Island is Berlin’s culturally rich mini metropolis that draws in innumerable tourists each year. With stunning views inside and outside the buildings, no wonder why this isle of enrichment is so alluring. UNESCO substantiates this sentiment with its famous words, ‘The museum as a social phenomenon owes its origins to the Age of Enlightenment in the 18th century. The five museums on the Museumsinsel in Berlin, built between 1824 and 1930, are the realization of a visionary project and show the evolution of approaches to museum design over the course of the 20th century‘.
