Humboldt Box, Berlin

3.8
#61 of 191 in Museums in Berlin
A project of the Berlin City Palace, Humboldt Box is a futuristic museum that displays the city's collection of Asian art, ethnographic artifacts, and Prussian objects. The octagon-shaped, glass building is surrounded by manicured lawns that are covered with residents' picnic blankets on fair-weather days. A restaurant with a terrace overlooking the lawns is on the attraction's top floor. Enjoy a glass of German wine there after touring the eclectic collections inside the large, open rooms.
