Pergamon Museum Gets Restoration Funds (Germany)





BERLIN -- The road is now clear for a long-awaited restoration of the Pergamon Museum, after the government approved a budget for the project.

The neoclassical museum, home to such treasures as the Pergamon Altar and Babylon's Ishtar Gate, will gain a new wing during the overhaul, which will cost about $417 million and be financed by the federal government, Berlin officials said Monday.
