Under construction, but still worth a visit

The museum is being refurbished and won't be full open until 2020. Even so, what is on display is magnificent and well worth a visit if you are in Berlin.

After walking what seemed miles through a building site we were met with possibly the rudest museum staff of our trip. There seemed to be a rush for lockers for our coats and bags, and attendants shouting at us. The only thing missing were snarling dogs and batons to beat us with. I decided to leave my husband there at... More

Really a great museum to visit. Hard to believe all this stuff was shipped over from the mideast. Folks did audio self-tour, but we just read the many placards in English.

The museum is fascinating and it's a privilege to see so much Syrian art and architecture when it's difficult to know what else of it may survive the next few years. It's a big shame however that they are charging full price for tickets when a lot of the museum is closed to the public - including the hall containing... More

This is a must in Berlin! Today when so many of the ancient artefacts is destroyed in the Middle East it is great to see som of the masterpireces of the ancient world being conserved with great care.

Best museum in Berlin. It is an absolute must-see. Just pre-book your tickets to make sure that you get in. One of the last places in the world to see old style Babylonian architecture.

Pergamon museum has so much to offer that 1 day is not enough to cover it. You just need to know what portion of the museum might interest you beforehand and head towards that section. We tried to do the whole museum and were quite unsuccessful. But happy that this is going to be one of the reasons why I... More

It's hard to say how impressive and fascinating this place is. The two huge town gates are enough and give a sense of antiquity as reality, rather than the scraps that you see in other museums -but there is so much more that it's impossible to take it al in on one visit. Highly recommended

Thank Ray K

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
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.
