The museum building, built in 1855 by the design of Friedrich August Stüler, a student of the famous architect Karl Schinkel, is considered the most significant urban building in the style of late classicism. In addition, the New Museum today is an example of constructive and technical solutions for museum spaces – a spacious glass roof made it possible not only to visually expand the room, but also to maximize the illumination of exhibits.
