The island is amazing and just walking around outside is great, the architecture is very impressive. We only had time to visit 2 museums but we would happily have spent an entire day here if we could have. The atmosphere is fairly relaxed so taking young children wouldn't be a problem. Book tickets online to avoid queues at busy times.

If you are in this area of Berlin you have to go and see Museum Island. Although we love history and architecture we thought museums would just be too much like hard work for us to go with our toddler so we skipped that section of our guidebook! Only to accidently stumble upon it when we were looking for the... More

If you plan to visit more than one museum, get the bundle that will save you money if you buy the tickets separately, and it is valid for all 5 at 18 euros, instead of 12 euros for each one, but is only valid for one day.

I did not have time to visit any of the museums but just walking around the area and viewing the wealth of museum buildings from the outside is still worthwhile just to experience the size and extent of them.

Great to go and see, but there is extensive building work being undertaken at the moment which spoilt our visit.

Didn't enjoy walking around here. From the outside the buildings needed a good clean and not what I expected at all.

We stayed within walking distance of Museum Island, so we went there in a couple of occasions. There are five galleries/museums on this Island including the Alte (old) National Gallery where you will see a good collection of Casper David Friedrich's paintings and also Arnold Bochlin's Isle of the Dead which blew me away! The Bode Museum was another of... More

You have to spend a whole day if you want to go to as many museums as you can. I recomend to book your ticket online, there are good offers and of course you are going to avoid the line waiting for the ticket to enter at the museums.

This is one of the prettiest parts of Berlin! Full of monuments and beautiful buildings. On top of all that you are on the river which is great in the summer. Visited in July 2014
