Pergamon Museum, Berlin

This museum is beautiful, though still being restored from the outside, hence no pictures. The focus of the exhibitions was mainly on Islamic art. There were many items from Syria on display, as one of the themes was the challenges to archaeology in a time of war. There were before and after pictures of ancient sites which are now lost forever, which made me feel sad, but also grateful for what I have.
