The Altes Museum (when the Neues Museum opened, then the Royal Museum until 1845) on Berlin's Museum Island was built by Karl Friedrich Schinkel in the style of classicism from 1825 to 1830 and opened on August 3, 1830. The educational museum building was modeled on the Athens Propylaea. It originally housed the works of art from the Gemäldegalerie. Today the museum houses the antique collection of the State Museums in Berlin. The listed building is one of the most important of classicism and is considered a high point in Schinkel's work. It is part of the ensemble of buildings on Museum Island, which was included in UNESCO's World Heritage List in 1999.

Museum worth seeing with a rotunda modeled on the Roman Pantheon – without a granite bowl. It was too big for the architect and is therefore outside in front of the outside staircase.
