This district surely deserve a visit if you're in Berlin, and why not going in for a visit in a museum?! =)

There is just so much to see and do here. You can spend days sight seeing and taking in the attraction. Really plan to see as much as you can.

A trip to Museum Island is a must if you visiting Berlin. Buy one day-2 day or 3 day pass and explore 5 museum and art galleries in campus with your own time.
