The Pergamon Museum is realy uniqe for its complete sites brought into the giant halls, especially the Roman temple and the Babillon and Assiria streets. However, I think it still looks like a hundred years old museum and needs renovation and more modern approach of presentation.

When it does open again, I preferred the walls of Babylon to the altar of Pergamon. It was just by chance that we visited just a week before it closed!

Even though certain parts of the museum were closed, I will remember the collection for as long as I live. If you choose to visit only 1 museum in berlin, you should choose this one.

I went there for the first time with some friends the Babylon gate and the first floor was amazingly beautiful. The voice "guide" was amazing as you could listen a lot of important informations for everything in the museum. At the second floor I was astonished by the old ottoman wooden wall. I completely recommend it :)

Bought a day ticket for Museum Island which is great value if you plan to visit more than one place. Free audioguide is a bonus - it's very thorough with regular bits to listen to as well as lots of written signage. Still a lot to see despite the altar being closed at the moment. The imposing Ishtar gate is... More

If you go there to see big stuff then it is good, because the ancient doors are gigantic as is the alley. But for the rest it is quite poor, only a few things here and there, it may be better when the huge works will end up... in 2025!

How this museum is the top Trip Advisor attraction in Berlin is beyond me. It was the only museum that we had to pay for (12Euros each) and it has absolutely nothing to do with Berlin! It is basically a smaller version of the British museum in London (and similar museums in other cities) and contains various artefacts (some of... More

Loved seeing the Ishtar gate and the section of the palace, the Roman ruins. The section with the Pergamon Altar, for which the museum is named, is currently under renovation and not available to visit, which is a shame, but the rest of the museum is really awesome anyway. You can get a pass at that museum that is good... More
