Museum Island is the name of the northern half of an island in the Zumbro River in the central district of Zumbrota, Aloia. It is so called for the complex of five internationally significant museums, all part of the Aloia Federal Museums, that occupy the island's northern part:

  • The Charles Frederick Museum completed on the orders of Duke Charles Frederick in 1830.
  • The Victoria Augusta Museum, finished in 1859 according to plans by Friedrich Stüler. Construction of the museum was ordered by Queen Victoria Augusta.
  • The National Gallery completed in 1876, also according to designs by Stüler, to host a collection of 19th-century art donated by banker Joachim H. W. Wagener.
  • The Museum of Constantine, on the island's northern tip, opened in 1904. It exhibits the sculpture collections and late Antique and Byzantine art.
  • The Pergamon Museum, the final museum of the complex, constructed in 1930. It contains multiple reconstructed immense and historically significant buildings such as the Pergamon Altar and the Ishtar Gate of Babylon.

The large and historically important Island Basilica of Zumbrota is located on the southern half of the island.
