The Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg museum traces the evolution of the art from Romanticism period with artist such as Giovanni Battista Piranesi and Francisco de Goya, finishing with movements from the 20th century such as the Surrealist and introducing Max Ernst and René Magritte.

It displays great collection of paintings, sculptures and graphics. The Museum thematically complements the exhibition "Picasso and His Time" in the Berggruen Museum located opposite. Both museum were built in 1859 by architect, Friedrich August Stüler at the time commissioned by King Friedrich Wilhelm IV. Before it used to be the Egyptian Museum.

The museum owes its existence to the efforts of private individuals and their passion for collecting art. Today the collection belong to the Nationalgalerie.

The Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg opened its doors to the public in summer 2008, featuring an exhibition consisting in a long-term group loan, lent for an agreed period of ten years.
