Visited the Barberini museum whilst in Berlin for the neo-impressionist exhibition by Cross. The museum has undergone extensive restoration and only opened fairly recently (not open on last visit to Potsdam 2 yrs ago). The museum wasn't too busy on a Sunday and the entry cost was €17p/p. The exhibition should appeal to most people who enjoy the art style and has quite a good selection of oil paintings with a few watercolors and some sketches. Must say personally not really to my taste but still a great experience.
There is a collection of pre-unification DDR and modern art also on display- not my taste and some ancient artifacts, marble and bronze sculptures- usual offerings and nice to see.
The museum itself is really nice and they have done a terrific job. Take the opportunity to pop out to the back or riverside as there are nice park and river views.
Lockers and cloak/coat storage and store are available.
There is also a cafe/restaurant offering reasonable selection to suit most tastes.
Very impressed with the fantastic Alt Stadt rejuvenation in Potsdam and this museum is one of the stars.
Potsdam and this museum worthwhile side trip if visiting Berlin.More
