So much to see in this museum, well worth the queue. We purchased the 18 Euro ticket for all the museums, which was well worth it. We had visited the Pergamon a long time agao and were hanging out to see the Ishtar Gate from Babylon. As stunning as I remrmbered it from Xmas 1988. The blue colour is wonderful.... More

The museum is gorgeous, also if I don't like archeology that much. The Mileto Market Door is fabulous, and also the Ishtar Door. But the Pergamon Altar won't be open to the public until 2020, and because of the restoration works, many other finds are no more in thecas because they risk to be damaged. So maybe you've better wait... More

A very interesting museum in Berlin but unfortunately right now its under renovation and there is very few things to see. I suggest go only if you have Museum Pass or some other unlimited museum card, I don't think its fare to pay full price for such small exhibition. Same as other German museums check in your coat or you... More

The Pergamon queue was very long when we first went to this museum but we decided to come back the following day and it was well worth it. The archeological installations are quite surreal and the scale is amazing. The Middle eastern sections with the full room installations and great carpets and artefacts are worth the visit alone. Like nothing... More

Don't miss this one. This has been my 2nd visit to this museum. It host pieces of history from a variety of eras. unbelievable w=how they were able to restore this piece of history. It is pity the museum is going through renovation, as the great entrance is now closed and some of the article are missing.

Unfortunately the museum is being restored, but that does not meat you have plenty to see. Our tour with the audio guide was fantastic and for those who love ancient history this is a place you cannot miss, along with the Neues Museum.

The bottom floor of this museum was dedicated almost entirely to a single collection of Assyrian and Babylonian archeological finds that were brought to Europe in the 19th century. Huge walls and gates. Very impressive. The upper floor was pieces from the Moslem period, but I did not have time to see that. This collection is relatively small compared to... More

Our 16 year old son thought this visit to be the highlight of our trip. He still relates to the Byzantine gates here a few months after seeing them live.
