Archeological Promenade

Corresponding to the north-south axis of the New Museum on level 0, the archaeological promenade, the architectonic and thematic backbone of the Museum Island, is being developed. The sequence of rooms is to lead from the Old Museum via the new Museum to the Pergamon- and the Bode Museum presenting themes of multidisciplinary interest. The sequence of rooms with the themes: Time and History (0.01), God and Gods (0.04), the Netherworld and Eternity (0.09), Travel to the Netherworld (0.12), and World Order (0.13), are already a central part of this concept to which ten different departments of the state museums have contributed. The archaeological promenade intends to motivate visits to the other museums which have contributed to the exhibition and to inspire and stimulate visitors to consider their own beliefs concerning the fundamental question of our existence.
