The five museums are Altes Museum (1830), Neues Museum (1859), Alte Nationalgalerie (1876), Bode Museum (1904) and Pergamon Museum (1930). Together these museums show the evolution of the museum design from the time that museums were established in the 18th century as a social phenomenon, until present day.

Museuminsel (Museum Island), Berlin was inscribed as a World Heritage Site during the 23rd session of the World Heritage Committee in Marrakesh, Morocco, 29 November - 4 December, 1999.
