We were excited to go to Museum island before our trip as I had heard so many good things about it. However, we were quite disappointed once we got there. Although the day pass we got was reasonably priced, especially as my husband managed to use his student card we still felt if you only wanted to go to one... More

I liked the concept of having so many museums all in the same area. The area is beautiful. Impossible to see all of the museums in one day. Read about it before hand and picks which ones you want to see. I also believe you can purchase a museum pass to save money.

The museums were fantastic as I expected but I was overwhelmed by the visible bomb damage from the Second World War. What a powerful reminder of the horrible War years when even museums were smashed without mercy. I don't value buildings over people but to see the damage to these structures housing World important historical relics is a punch to... More

There are 5 museums on the museum island and the Berlin Catheral is also there. If you have time, it's worthwhile to pay a visit there. The museum structures are beautiful themselves. In fact, Alexander Platz and TV tower are also nearby, just about 10 minutes walk. Thus, you can visit those attractions altogether at the same time.

What an amazing museum, with castle walls and palaces rebuilt in huge rooms, making it seem as if you are really there. Spent 3 hours in awe, whilst traversing this museum. A must see if in Berlin!

Whenever I travel to Berlin, I just have to visit the Neues Museum and see the statue of Nefertiti. It is magical! Just seeing that statue is worth the wait. But if you get early to the museum ticket booth, you can be among the first ones entering the museum. They have restored the building beautifully. There is lots more... More

5 Museums in one place. If you love art, and history, this is a must. Its a UNESCO world heritage site, what else can be said? Oh of course, the location is beautiful and very scenic, esp in fall!

Loved Museum island. Easy to get to. Loads to do. I go back every Berlin visit. You can see the the Berliner Dome, Neues Museum, Pergamon Museum, the National Gallery and loads of other stuff. Would pay to make a day of it if you're up for a musuem day :)

Loved the art museum, found the original of a print we have at home there, by Adolf Mendez, made our day

I liked the Alte Nationalgalerie and the Neues (Egiptian) Museum. I didn't like the Bode Museum and the Pergamon Museum (under reconstruction and with restricted areas).
