Berlin’s Bode Museum Reopens

“Berlin’s famed Museum Island complex moves a big step closer to recovering its former glory this week when the Bode Museum, home to the city’s sculpture collection, reopens after six years of restoration. The domed building, which juts out into the Spree River in the heart of former East Berlin, is the second of the five Neoclassical museums to get a full makeover as part of a government-funded $1.5-billion overhaul.”
