Long queues at times,no book a timed visit online in advance. The main exhibits are still amazing, but beware that the main one is closed, as part of a rebuilding across Musem Island for years to come. To be fair, you pass signs saying this as you queue.

Order tickets on line one day in advance to avoid lineups. Pay for the audio guide. I would have liked to see 3D examples of some stones and mosaics to get a sense of depth, and the reconstruction process.

Even if the rest of the museum is not that interesting, the Pergamon Altar is breathtaking and worth the visit.

We didn't know that the highlight of the museum wasn't available when we went in and that was a great shame. What there is on view is stunning and worth a visit.

If you do not have a whole lot of time and have already been to (or planning) Louvre, I would not go to this museum. There is a nice gate structure from Babylon and some cool remains from antique Rome. Interesting, but not unmissable.

This museum, which I visited for the second time, is by far the best museum of Berlin. Very well organised and the audio system is very easy to use and very helpful.

If you are a museumlover and like especially ancient history, pergammon museum is a paradise for you. It offers a lot about both ancient and middle ages history. While walking around you feel like walking in the streets of 3000 years old society...

Unbelievable artefacts but the maximum visitor number at any one time and priority ticket holder system meant I had to queue for almost an hour to get in. Worth it though.

This is well worth queuing for. One of the most fantastic museums I have visited with Babylonian and Roman Gates. Very well laid out displays and paintings of the exploration sites taken from the originals.

Considering the events in the Middle East, with groups destroying cultural sites/artifacts, it's exciting to see such well-exhibited displays. When one believes that ancient Biblical figures, including the captive Jews, saw and probably went through these very gates and processional roads, it's a privilege to see and enjoy these priceless exhibits.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
