I thought this museum was a lot bigger than it was!!! It houses some truely monumental pieces that really have chance to shine in space and light but I felt there could have been a bit more interraction or explanation. The audio guides are great for multitude of languages. I was impressed with the lady in the cloakroom who organised... More

The line might be long but it's definitely worthwhile. I waited for an hour to get in (you may reserve the ticket to skip the line), but when I entered the museum I was just shocked by the collection and forgot how tired I was. You can never see such masterpieces in anywhere else. I knew the Germans were famous... More

The displays and antiquities from ancient civilisations in the Pergamon Museum are wonderful, and definitely have that 'wow' factor. Obviously not world famous for no reason! If you only have time for one museum visit in Berlin make it the Pergamon. On our first visit we encountered what appears to be a normal waiting time of up to 2 hours,... More

We got there early and the line was maybe only 40 minutes!! Not too bad. This is the best of the five museums and does peal back history to an ancient time in the Middle East that was stunning. The Ishtar Gate is gorgeous in color and design. Also, this is just a small part of the actual length of... More

We had a late start going to Museum Island and by the time we got there the queue for tickets had already formed. We got in after about 25 minutes and checked with the information desk as we had free entry covered by a Berlin Visit card. She told us that, unfortunately, we had to get it stamped at the... More

The Ishtar gate, re-assembled Roman temple and accompanying relics, so much to see from early Eastern European/Middle East history. It was very busy in mid-July but understandably so. Best to arrange for tickets ahead of time, saved us 2 hours wait at the door.

We have been to many museums but this one is unique. It gives you an impression that you are in ancient greece. It is must seen in Berlin. Avoid the line up by buying the ticket early. It is a unique museum and even kids will like it, We travelled with teenagers and they liked this museum the best
