Numismatic Collection

The Münzkabinett (Numismatic Collection) is one of the largest collections of its kind with around 500,000 objects. The collection owes its international renown to its rich diversity as well as the comprehensiveness of its coin series which range from the beginnings of coinage in the seventh century BC in Asia Minor to the coins and medals of the twenty-first century.

Sculpture Collection and Museum of Byzantine Art

In the year 2000, the Skulpturensammlung (Sculpture Collection) and the Museum für Byzantinische Kunst (Museum of Byzantine Art) were merged to form one museum. In August 2000, the Bode Museum, formerly the Kaiser Friedrich Museum, was closed for reconstruction. With the re-opening of the Bode Museum on 19 October 2006, the Sculpture Collection and the Museum of Byzantine Art, together with the Numismatic Collection and works of the Gemäldegalerie – Old Master Paintings, are once more on display in their full splendour.

The Sculpture Collection

The Sculpture Collection is one of Germany's largest collections of sculptures dating from the Middle Ages and later. It originates in the Prussian "Art Cabinet" collections, the Brandenburgisch-Preußische Kunstkammern. After decades of being dispersed, the collection of sculpture was reunited in the Bode Museum, its original home.
