The Ducal Museum Gotha, located in the palace gardens to the south of Friedenstein Palace, is a neo-Renaissance museum building from the 19th century.
Since reopening in 2013, it has been showing the art collection of the Dukes of Saxe-Gotha with Egyptian and Greco-Roman antiquities, Renaissance paintings, East Asian art from China and Japan as well as sculptures from different epochs.
One of the exhibition's masterpieces is the Gotha lovers, a painting from 1480.
The constant growth of the ducal collections at Friedenstein Palace, which included a library, a coin cabinet, a natural history cabinet, an art cabinet, a picture gallery and a copper engraving collection, gave rise to a separate, representative new museum building.(Source: Wikipedia)
