The restored Bode Museum finally reopened to the public in 2006. The museum first opened in 1904, designed in the elegant neo-classical style for which Berlin became famous. But wartime bombing and years of neglect under East Germany''s communist regime left it a ruin. Now, after five years of restoration, its treasures are on display again. These include Germany''s largest collection of sculpture, Byzantine artefacts, works by old masters and a gallery for children.
