If on a short trip to Berlin, like us, you HAVE to visit the Pergamon Museum. We didn't, but my advice is to pre-book tickets online prior to your visit, and if you wish, purchase a museum island ticket which lets you into all of the museums on museum island. I was totally amazed by the entire museum! The museum... More

You need to visit this place when you're fresh, and not at the end of seeing all the others. Because you just wont appreciate how truly amazing this place is Early in the morning before it gets massively busy is best. Marvel at the amazing blue gates of Ishatr, and then marvel even more at the wonderful rebuild of the... More

We went to the museums on a rainy day which was perfect. I recommend either purchasing your tickets online or find one of the museums with a short ticket line and by the all museum pass. That way if the line and any of the museums are long you have you ticket. Another suggestion is to get there 30 mins... More

It's fantastic, a step back more than 3000 years in time. The Ishtar gate of ancient Babylon is impressive, the Pergamon altar is amazing, and the other statues, reliefs and relics are amazing.

Amazing displays of a Roman market gate, an entrance to the ancient city of Babylon and the huge Pergamon altar. I loved looking at the artefacts but felt uncomfortable about their removal from their original location.

OK, I am going to add to the long queues outside but this museum is amazing and it should not be missed when visiting Berlin. Despite the many visitors I found it spacious and there is so much to see. Allow at least 2 hours.

Reconstruction of an actual Hellenistic altar/temple, a Roman forum and marketplace, beautiful Persian gate with lions. Be sure to make reservations in advance during high season as people were waiting in line for two hours in the hot sun for access. Stunning museum.

Visited on a Saturday morning. Came early but still queued for two hours. After the wait you feel that whatever's inside better be pretty spectacular. It is pretty amazing if you're a museum buff and you don't have two tired fed up children with you ... Or maybe that was just me. The thing to do is get a timed... More
