The Bode Museum belongs to the group of museums on Museum Island in Berlin and is a historically preserved building. The museum was designed by architect Ernst von Ihne and completed in 1904. Originally called the Kaiser-Friedrich-Museum after Kaiser Friedrich III, the museum was renamed in honor of its first curator, Wilhelm von Bode, in 1956.
Closed for repairs since 1997, the museum is scheduled to reopen on October 18, 2006, at which point it will be the home for a collection of sculptures, Byzantine art, and coins and medals.
