if not closed yet, run and go see it before it closes down for renovation for 6 years! small in size yet rich in information not the best i have seen in my life, but worth doing while in Berlin. well organized, free headsets and explanation nice surroundings, great for coffee breaks, or a tour in a boat

The ruins reconstructed were grand! It gives you a feeling of being right there at that ancient time.
