In 1866, building work began, and when Stüler died the same year Johann Heinrich Strack took over the site management. The National Gallery was opened on 21st March 1876.

Altes Museum

Erected between 1843 and 1855 according to plans by Friedrich August Stüler, Neues Museum represents an outstanding example of 19th century museum architecture, both seen on its own and as part of the Museum Island complex. The Neues Museum was severely damaged by bombing in 1943 and 1945. Only in 1985 was the reconstruction of the building decided upon; initial emergency safety measures and a new foundation followed in 1989. The architectural office of David Chipperfield is responsible for the restoration of the Neues Museum within the context of the Masterplan Museum Island. After the estimated re-opening in autumn 2009, the Egyptian Museum and parts of the Museum of Pre- and Early History will be presented in the Neues Museum.

Museum für Fotografie

The Museum of Photography has been a magnet for photography enthusiasts from all over the world since its opening in 2004. In the last few years alone, over 700,000 visitors have flocked to see exhibitions organised by the Helmet Newton Foundation, ranging from 'Sex and Landscapes' to 'Newton, Nachtwey, Lachapelle: Men, War & Peace' and 'Pigozzi and the Paparazzi'.

The Museum of Photography is shared between two main organisers, with a total of 2000 square metres of floor space at their disposal. The first is the Helmut Newton Foundation itself, which occupies the two lower floors that have housed the successful permanent exhibition 'Helmut Newton's Private Property', as well as individual exhibitions on the Helmut Newton's work and his contemporaries. The second is the Art Library's Photographic Collection, which presides over the newly resplendent Kaisersaal on the second floor.

 

For four years, the Kaisersaal's prevailing state of ruin formed an unusual venue for contemporary art and photography exhibitions held by the Art Library's Photographic Collection. A group of photographers and artists (Raimund Kummer, M+M, Philipp Schönborn, Boris Hars-Tschachotin and Hannes Nehls, Regina Schmeken, Reiner Leist, Raymond Depardon and Simone Mangos) designed spectacular installations specifically for the room that had been severely damaged in the war. Their exhibitions always tested the very limits of photography, its relation to other media such as sculpture and film, as well as its relation to religion and history.
