This museum presents a great collection of especially German and Italian gothic and Rennaisance sculpture. Also other countries or regions like France and Flanders are well presented. The baroque collection is interesting. The presentation is modern and with great taste, you can just enjoy walking arround. Visit and enjoy as a connaiseur or as an explorer of these masterpieces.

This is for people who are interested in European religious art which doesn't float my boat, personally. The building is wonderfully Baroque and splendid. We had it virtually to ourselves so if you would like a quiet hour, this is the place.

We only visited briefly -- you can do that with the museum pass -- but the two rotundas are marvellous and the cafe at the Bode is the best of the museum cafes. Dining in majestic surroundings.

A lovely looking museum which has paintings, sculptures and various altar pieces depicting religious scenes. Very well laid out and worth a visit.

We bought a museum pass and was our last museum on the Island to visit. It is probably the most beautiful of all. We enjoyed the Byzantine period the most. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially as we had an infant.

At the far end of Museum island you can visit this beautiful building with baroque and renaissance objects. Unfortunately lot of it was closed temporarily to the public, I don't know why.

I wanted to make my first museum the Neues Museum, but when I realized I was already at the far end of the island and at Bode Museum! The Bode Museum features sculpture collections and late Antique and Byzantine art, which was quite new to me since most of the art museums I’ve been to are mostly paintings. Spent about... More
