I believe I've been in all the best museum of the World, and this is definitely one of the BEST!! You have to go! The reconstruction of the Babylon Gate is the best thing I've ever seen in my hole life. It cost only 11 Euros to go in and audioguide included. It's a small museum comparing to Louvre or... More

One of the nicest museums. Small, but full of everything that you'd want to see of Antiquity period.

The Pergamon Museum on Berlin’s Museum Island is often reduced down to its Collection of Classical Antiquities the main attraction of which is the Pergamon Altar. But, the Museums of the Ancient Near East and of Islamic Art make this museum a must for those interested in ancient history or those just wanting to become familiar with ancient history. The...

It is the most visited museum of Museum island. When we came, near our place in the line there was a sign that "from this place it will take you 3 hours to get to museum". In real it took 1,5 hours. Free audio guide is available. There are really impressive historic monuments from Ancient Greece, Middle East etc., but... More

Must see. I spent a half day and never felt tired. One advice is to go in the morning. When I came out around 2pm, there was a very long line for the emtrance.

For those who love history, you must be there. If you buy ticket for visiting 3 museums in the same area, it will be much cheaper. If possible, you should avoid visiting there in the weekend.

I recommend to book tickets online if you want to skip the queue. It was interesting also for people, which are not in history.

You will be blown away by the sight and scale of both the Pergamon Altar and the Ishtar gate! The Market gate of Miletus is also very impressive. We only queued for 30 mins to get in and it was worth every penny of the admission price. This museum was recommended by a Berliner and we could certainly see why.... More

I really enjoyed the gate from Babylon and the enormous constructions from ancient times. One of the best museums I've been in in Berlin.
