We have not been to any of the museums in the island, but it was still worth a visit - a lot of inserting buildings and views on it.

The museum island is less than 10 minutes from Regent hotel and it's not to be missed. There are at least two you definitely must see if not all five there, which are Neus museum and Pergamon which have artifacts from Babylon time and Neferititi.

There are many different museums on the Island, all with many exhibitions which are all well presented and well narrated in English. There are some very interesting items on display with evoke a great sense of importance and history

Pergamon museum made my mouth drop in awe. It seemed like they took the entire entrance of ancient Egypt and built a museum around it. It was like walking back in time. The Neue museum was very interesting too. Don't waste your time in the Bode museum, it is boring. Buy your ticket online to avoid the lines. You have... More

We visited 3 of the 4 museums over two days and it was very convenient having everything so close. Apart from the Pergamon Museum, we didn't have to queue at all and we were surprised how few people were in the museums.

This was absolutely one of my favourite places in Berlin. The surroundings of the museums makes it almost a cosy corner. You can lay on the gras and just enjoy the atmosphere.

We loved the Pergamon Museum but didn't care for the Neue Museum adjoining. That is more dedicated to archaeology and wasn't our interest. They do have the bust of Nefertiti which is worth seeing, however. Wished we could have gone to the Museum of Art but didn't have time.
