Neues Museum Open!

Just a post to record that the Neues Museum on Berlin's Museum Island (Museumsinsel) is finally open after a major rebuild overseen by British architect David Chipperfield. And very nice it looks too! Haven't gone inside yet, but from the press coverage it appears to have been sensitively and tastefully done.

Here's a photo of a sculpture of a man grappling with a lion outside, for some reason!
