Natural History Museum, Berlin

Easter 2014 I revisited the Natural History Museum in Berlin and it is clear that they are continuing to ‘re-shape the concept of a modern research museum’.  Their website actually states that this work will focus on the ‘sympathetic restoration and modernisation of collection rooms’ and from what I could see this is well underway. They also have a ‘master plan’ that includes comprehensive renovation of existing parts of the building, extensions and a new building.   I intend to keep an eye on this development and hopefully they will maintain their high level of sympathetic restoration and remain an example of good practice.
