... on one island within the city. It is an impressive site with an "overdose" of culture and history. We enjoyed an entire day in the various museums.

If you like culture and history, then Museum Island is the place to go! It is overflowing with these... Its got several main museums, and other sites, so it can get very busy. Probably recommend to go early in the morning to miss some of the crowds. But because there is so many things to see and do, your pretty... More

Well worth a trip. We visited Museum Island on our Original Berlin Walk and the background and explanations were very useful in appreciating the buildings and the history behind them. Before going, read up a little in advance.

Boasting five museums and one fantastic church in one spot dead in the middle of the city, art lovers cannot afford to miss out on this area of Berlin.

There lots to see and do here. Do not try and do it in one day you would be wrecked. It is a busy place so try to plan your visit. The buildings are great too look at.

When visiting an exciting city, it's hard to consider spending hours in stuffy museums, right? These are not boring or stuffy museums! We visited several museums while in Berlin and can vouch that are exciting places to see art and artifacts, and learn about the history of the place. We purchased the 3-day Museum Pass at the visitor center beside... More

Absolutely fabulous museums and great exhibition of Rembrand Bugatti at the moment, a must-see ! If you have only one day and it is your first, don't miss the Pergamon museum. The rest is also mindblowingly beautiful. We visited for the 4th time and I spent 3 hours at the Alte Nationalgalerie thanks to the great mix of paintings and... More

It's wonderful to have all these fantastic museums in one place. We bought a three day museum pass. While this was good value, it meant that we were a bit museumed out by the end of the three days. I don't know if Berlin has something like the New York Pass; if it does this would be better, so that... More
