Who knew that the Germans were in the Middle East? The Pergamon has outstanding permanent exhibits of the remains of a Greek city of Pergamon that was in Anatolia and the reconstructed remains of the unequaled city gates of Babylonia from the time of Nebachanezer. Not to be missed!

The way the exhibits were set up as if you were actually there made this one of the most interesting museums we have been to. Worth the trip!

I think other reviews, gave me too high of expectaions. There are some impressive things here, but it is more replics than I anticipated. The Alter of Zuess was also not open, so maybe that lowered my rating.

Huge, spacious halls of ancient treasures and reconstructed entrance gates to Babylon and the ancient Roman city of Pergamon. It actually feels like you've stepped back in time.

This museum is, to me, the one most worth visiting on Museum Island. It has the Pergamon Altar, the Ishtar Gates, and many more historical and unique pieces. It was mind blowing the first time I went here. However, this isn't a secret. The queue outside is normally over an hour long. If possible, buy tickets in advanced or show... More

The gates of Ishtar dating back to the 6th Century BC are breath taking alone. The whole museum will be closed as of Sep 14 for swveral years

Major renovation of the Pergamon Museum is underway, from Sept 2014, parts of it will not be available to the public until 2019. So if you want to see the Altar of Pergamon etc then you need to act fast! A truly wonderful museum for those that like Ancient cultures and their past lives. Having been to Pergamon in Turkey...

The museum is must go for every art lover. It houses original-sized, reconstructed monuments such as the Pergamon Altar, the Market Gate of Miletus, or Ishtar Gate. Impressive! You can watch forever the Pergamon Altar's frieze in high relief showing the battle between the Giants and the Olympian gods getting into details of this incredible work.

If you are into antiquity, a must-see. The most monumental museum I've been to, due to it's large artefacts. Take the museum 3-day pass.

This is a marvellous museum. The Pergamon gate by itself makes spending time here worthwhile. It is impressive in scale an the ability to climb up its stairs makes it so accessible. But the gate to the Roman market is also very impressive. And my favourite is the Ishtar Gate. Truly amazing. Its blue brick must have amazed the ancient... More
