Mostly museums, but there is a lot to see there outside the museums themselves. The small parks in-between the museums, and the looks of it from the "main-land".

Although the Pergamon was closed for renovations, we visited the Neues Museum to see the antiquities and, of course, pay our respects to Nefertiti. The Egyptian artifacts are now in a newer, more spacious area and can be easily viewed and appreciated. We especially liked the Amarna period rooms.

The buildings are spectacular, the historical exhibits are top-notch, and there are plenty of comfort amenities to see you through your hours of meandering. My husband and I loved walking through the 3 main museums located in the same place, but we also loved the architecture of the buildings themselves just as much!

Beautiful Museum with the spectacular Ishtar Gate from Babylon. Such exquisite work that was reconstructed here from this ancient site. Plus a lot more. Plan for a couple of hours just at the Pergamon.

Where to start? What to miss out in the time available ? A quick glance at a lot or an in depth look? This place is a true treasure trove ...

It's ideal how all the museums and most of the galleries are all grouped together on museum island! It's great. All the buildings are old & impressive in themselves. Lots of coffee shops too, to just watch the world go by!

We have now been to all five museums on the Island at least once. The Pergamon and Neues are the best but they are all wonderful. The digger end offers are confusing- I spent a lot of time on the Internet deciding what to buy only to find that this was not what was actually on offer! We bought the... More

fabulous area. You need a week to explore the area as there are so many wonderful museums depending on your area of interest. So many options available it is hard to choose.

Easy to see all the main museums in one place with a free museum pass, and easy to get to. Excellent location.
