    Das Pergamonmuseum ist Teil des Museumsensembles auf der Berliner Museumsinsel. Es wurde zwischen 1910 und 1930 nach Plänen von Alfred Messel und Ludwig Hoffmann für den von Carl Humann entdeckten Pergamonaltar, die Sammlung nachantiker deutscher Kunst der Gemälde- und Skulpturengalerie, die vorderasiatische Abteilung mit hethitischen, assyrischen, babylonischen und persischen
    There are three huge collections housed within this grand building: the Collection of Classical Antiquities, the Museum of Near Eastern Antiquities and the Museum of Islamic Art. The Pergamon Museum was the last museum built on Museumsinsel Museum Island and was intended to house the great acquisitions brought back to Germany by archaeologists of the eighteenth and nineteenth century. The museum's best-known attraction is the Pergamonsaal. The Pergamon Altar 165 BC, from the eponymous Asia Minor city-state, is three stories high and served as the entrance gate to an entire complex. It is astounding both because of its size and extremely precise detail, especially in a frieze which shows the gods battling giants. The entire room is the same color as the building's stone, making the details on the frieze section stand out even more. Facing the stairs, on the left hand side of the room there is a small-scale model of the altar which allows the viewer to see where the frieze segments would have originally been mounted. A 1:300 scale model of Pergamon city is on the right side of the room. The monumental market door of Milet is under restoration, but it is still possible to see large parts of it.
