Well worth buying the pass for 3 days for 24 euros as 8 euros to get into most of the museums so a huge saving. So much to see!

It's a very beautiful space with important museums. Besides you can find many good angles to take photographies. I chose just one museum to visit, Pergamum, it was amazing, I spent 3 hours inside. But I think worth it visit all of then.

The Neues museum is wonderful, the Berliner Dom is so opulent, it's hard to believe it is protestant. The Pergamon museum is under construction and is hard to accept that you cannot see the Pergamon alter until 2019, but such is the plight of a city bidding on the 2024 Olympics. Overall, worth the trip!

We wondered around the Island one evening, the architecture is lovely and there are lots of beautiful sculptures to enjoy. We're not huge art lovers, so didn't go into the museums, but walking around as enjoyable enough.

i visited all 5 of the museums, and managed to get in for free with my berlin pass which was well worth the money for the 4 days i was in berlin. the museums are so interesting and the audio guides helped understand so much more!!! The museums can get busy but i suppose its to be expected.

Surrounded by museums, nice cafes and restaurants and the river Spey. We came in winter and so it was a bit quiet but definitely well worth a visit. Make sure you visit Pergamon Museum while here.

This is a fantastic way to see history. 5 major museums in one locations. It's worth getting the Museum pass - 3 day/24 euros versus 10-12 euros per museum. Use the pass for the many other museums in Berlin.
