I love this place but it has got to the point now because I need to make two visits when in Berlin because I just CANNOT get in everything I want to see...there's just so much. I recommend a whole half day here, with regular breaks, then another half day the next day. Otherwise, like the Vatican Museums, cultural indigestion... More

I walk there from time to time, enjoying tourists taking pictures, small markets and the view, that is always amazing.

It is an area in Berlin with Museums "everywhere". Truly, they are close to each other and spending a day, or at least a few hours, is highly recommended.

You have to go to museum island if you are in Berlin. This is where all the huge museums are. You could spend a day in each museum easily. There is art and history to explore galore! All museums are a decent price and you are guaranteed to learn something different in each one. Also, the grounds around the museums... More

I loved exloring around the canals, eating the wurst at the various beer gardens. Summer walking around the museum island is sleek and cool.

The Island houses 5 museums (Bode, Pergamon, Neues, Altes Museum and Altes Gallery) and the Berliner Dom Church. The one day Island pass involves a headlong rush to see everything. The Berlin Museum pass (valid for 3 days) is worthwhile and provides a good amount of time to view everything at a good pace. Prioritise what you may want to... More

an astounding exhibition of Egyptian, Roman and pre historic artefacts, including the bust of queen Nefertiti, a place you can spend the whole day in awe and wonder for 12 euro (4 floors accessed by large staircase or lift), also has a small café and shop.

We bought a travel ticket for the whole city that included free entrance to the five museums on Museum Island. I recommend this, you will save a lot of money. It was worth the visit just to see the incredible bust of Nefertiti.
