Altes Museum, Berlin
Posted by Lisa Hill on September 5, 2012
After the Bode, (and a restorative coffee in the cafe) we visited the Altes Museum. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it’s full of splendid classical antiquities.
I was pleased to see a bunch of primary school children sketching the vases and statuary, and only too happy to submit to being ‘interviewed’ by some of them. The two little girls that you can see in the slideshow were ecstatic to have found two such exotic subjects as a couple of Australians, and they were pleased to find a use for the English they’ve been learning at school. They were lovely kids!
