With the Museum Barberini, supported by the Hasso Plattner Förderstiftung, there is now an art museum of the extra class in Potsdam. Directly opposite the Landtag, at the Old Market, the Palais Barberini, which had been destroyed during an air attack in 1945, was rebuilt with a historic facade. It is part of the reconstruction of one of the most beautiful squares in Europe and the historical center of Potsdam. The Barberini Museum was voted "Building of the Year" by the "City of Germany" association in January 2017 and is one of the most important current museum openings in Europe. Starting point for the presentations is the art collection of Hasso Plattner, whose collection focuses on Impressionism, American Modernism, the art of the GDR and painting after 1989. For the exhibitions of the house these works are combined with important loans from museums and private collectors from all over the world.
