Public unveiling of the Pergamon Altar’s 3D model

Within the scope of the “Museum Island” master plan, the Pergamon Museum is being renovated in sections. Work began in 2013, and the Pergamon hall has been closed since the fall of 2014, presumably until 2019. With the support of the federal government’s commissioner for culture and the media, the Antique Collection of the National Museums in Berlin and Fraunhofer IGD were able to realize an elaborate 3D scan of the over 2000-year-old masterpiece of Hellenistic art in September 2014. The resulting 3D model of the Pergamon Altar is now unveiled to the public.
