After the opening of the first State Museums, five more houses of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation are due to reopen their corona-locked doors in June.
Visitors can then again visit Nefertiti in the Neues Museum
on the Museum Island, one of Berlin's tourist highlights. In addition to the Neues Museum, the Kupferstichkabinett and the Kunstbibliothek will open their doors (from 19 June) as well as the Museum für Fotografie
(25 June) and the Museum of European Cultures (27 June), as the National Museums announced on Friday.
All the Foundation's museums were closed since 14 March due to the pandemic. The National Museums of the Foundation of Prussian Cultural Heritage, which is supported by the Federal Government and the Länder, alone have 13 collections in 19 museums. The Museum Island in the centre of Berlin, which has been designated a World Cultural Heritage Site, was last visited by a good three million people every year.
