the main attraction is not available to visitors until 2020, that is pergamus altar. Other than that the museum has some impressive things to see, but it is really restricted as to variety. Will visit again after 5 years.

Even with the renovations, I still enjoyed the museum. A word of warning though, a lot of the museum is unavailable due to construction. Was it good, sure. Was it worth the price and time, not really. Don't go out of your way to see it, at least until they're done renovating.

The museum offers some impressive archeological structures and exhibits. The museum was fairly cheap and it was free admission for under 18's. Unlike some of the other museums on museum island the Pergamon is open on Mondays.

Pergamon is a great example of well designed museum - it's has a great architecture and great exhibits. You'll see there huge amounts of Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Roman, Greek, Arabic art and history. There are rooms with just one exhibit of an enormous size - Isthar Gate with a long corridor, Mshatta Facade or Market Gate of Miletus. It's good to... More

After paying the admission fee, we discovered portions of the museum was closed for renovations. We did find the gates of babylon spectacular as well as the other ancient exhibits. It was a brutally cold day and the walk from the Ubahn was quit long, however, it is the thing to do in Berlin.

One of my favourite museums. The big public attractions still open - well most of them - but it is a building site. It is my 5th visit (museum nerd) so I was disappointed but it was still worth a visit.

The two really impressive things for me were the pergamon altar which is huge and of course the Babylonian Ischtar gate. It is really well preserved and it's as if one can literally see the glory of this ancient culture.
