Profile of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin

The Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, with its many museums, falls under the umbrella of the Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz (SPK, Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation). The other organizations that fall under the auspices of the SPK are the Staatsbibliothek, Geheimes Staatsarchiv, the Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut (a specialist library of Spanish- and Portuguese-language literature), and the Staatliches Institut für Musikforschung (a musicological research institute which has its own museum: the Musikinstrumenten-Museum).

The SPK was founded in 1957 to preserve and continually enrich the cultural artefacts belonging to the former state of Prussia. It is funded by the federal German government and all 16 of Germany’s individual states.
