The buildings are amazing, and we got a nice tour through the places. There was lots of construction at the time I visited. I recommend you to take a biking tour throughout the island, an ideal choice! There are 5 museums in one location, and in one of them you can even learn to understand hieroglyphs through a workshop.

The museums are a treasure in the centre of Berlin and well worth a visit. Get a museum pass and see them all in a day, then see Berlin Cathedral which is also on the island, and climb to the top of the dome. A lovely day in Classical Berlin.

Very interesting museums. Please be aware that there are renovations going on. There are passes available which are good value for money. Particularly recommended Neues and Pergamon Museums.

Oh, so busy, so complicated. And annoying that the middle bridge has building work on it. Try to avoid weekends.

located near to berlin cathedral, looks really awesome even from the outside, cause we were out of money so we couldn't enter museums..almost every museum is facing the river with the wall so it looks interesting..and ofcourse, visit museums if u are able, u probably won't regret it! :)

The selection of the museums is only beaten by the sheer size of them all; especially the Pergamon and Neus museums. Prioritise these two and if doing all on the same day you can feel free to browse the other museums a bit more casually - all worth seeing and the combi ticket is great value for money!

The architecture itself is already a piece of art. I visited Pergamon and really loved it. But the line is extremely long. I would recommend to book the ticket online so you won't waste half an hour in line.

Lots too see.. Best is Nefertiti .. Very wonderful. Beware.. german museum staff are quite officious if you don't follow the rules.. My name also went down on the list and I wasn't allowed in with a small camera bag as the zip was broken. Although allowed into the other three museums. Some amazing stuff to look at. A museum...
