Museum island is extremely nice to visit and their are plenty of things to see and do. Berliner Dom is beautiful! There is a museum for any taste of history or art. There are many people around the island which is great. Visiting museums or lounging in the grass. It is also close to Humboldt University and Bebel Plaza. It... More

There are 5 museums here, and they do a combined ticket for a discounted price, saving quite a bit. Be aware that 3 of the 5 are closed on Mondays. The Pergamon will shortly be closing for a 5 year restoration project, so plan accordingly. Good cafe at the Bode museum. There is also pier where boat rides are offered... More

The place itself is probably the nicest in Berlin, and it is extremely convenient to have all the major museums of the city clustered together in one place.

We went to several museums and the Dom. All good and worth the time. You can buy a pass that lets you into most of them and save some $$$

Berlin has wonderful museums. Take the time to visit, plan to spend a full day if not more. Have your hotel book your time online to avoid line buying a ticket

We got the Berlin Welcome Card which was a pass that gave free travel, free access or reduced prices to museums, other sights and restaurants. The pass is available for different prices- we got the 3 day one for €38.50 each. Easy also as you have the one travel ticket for that time period making the U bahn and S... More

Was blown away by the restoration of the Neues Museum building (and the collection housed in it.) On our visit they were just starting to remove some of the marbles from the Pergamon which will also close for restoration. If they do even half as good a job on this one as they have with the Neues, Berlin will be... More

If the lines to the museums are too long, this is still a very interesting area of Berlin to explore
