The Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation guards a treasure that is unique worldwide. The 19 museums, archives and libraries encompass a collection that spurs the mind to travel across the globe through the entire history of mankind. More than 5 million objects from everyday life as well as archaeological artefacts and art masterpieces form one of the five greatest universal collections anywhere in the world.
Beyond their beauty, these objects provide answers to the important questions that have occupied humans since prehistory. ‘Berlin’s Treasure Trove’ is more than a documentary about Berlin’s museums – it is an exciting and entertaining journey through the cultural history of mankind.
