The Pergamon Museum truly is a world-class museum. It houses the gigantic 52-foot-wide Pergamon Altar, 95-foot-high Market Gate of Miletus, and 575 BC Babylonian Ishtar gate.  All were carefully reassembled and reconstructed for the display.  The collection’s focus is the Middle East, including Egypt and Iran.
