Museum of Islamic Art

Museum für Islamische Kunst

This is the part of the Pergamon Museum and one of the most interesting museums of Berlin. It displays household and cultural objects of Islamic population of the VIII-XIX centuries. The first exhibit of the museum was the the Mshatta Facade of the Umayyad Palace of Qasr Mshatta in Jordan that was presented to Wilhelm II by Osman sultan. This piece is still considered the most valuable part of the museum's collection. During the war one of the towers of palace's facade was considerably damaged while many valuable carpets were fully or partially burnt. The renewed permanent exposition on the upper floor of the southern wing of the Pergamon museum was opened in 2000.
