Even if you have no deep interest in medieval history you should go to this museum, especially if you are from the US. You are in Europe and should develop some understanding of the culture and times of the European past which will add to your understanding of the present. Do not leave Berlin without coming here.

Lovely exhibition and statues. Not as impressive perhaps as Pergamon or Neues Museum, but well worth a visit if you have time.

This place is incredible. We spent most of two visits in the mediaeval and Romanesque galleries which have some amazing and important exhibits not just from Germany but around Europe. Good coffee in the café too, and relaxing after a lengthy walk round. (Poppy seed cake a bit heavy!) Definitely a must if you're doing the MuseumInsel...go here first to... More

I loved this place! From the culture to the architecture, it's a must see if you go to Berlin. I wish I could go back and spend a little more time there!

I bought the three day concession card here and it was my first stop of many museums in Germany. I found it really interesting. It's an absolutely beautiful building, and the exhibits were well laid out. The signs were in both English and German, and there was a free audio guide - I recommend taking advantage of that as it...

The Bode Museum was the highlight of my holiday, and I didn't even get a chance to go inside! We were fortunate enough to be walking back to our hotel one evening after an early dinner past the Bode Museum when we stumbled upon a classical music concert being performed on the steps of the museum. People were sat and... More

Here's a museum you can skip unless you really want to see how they've spruced up the old building in anticipation of their sprucing up the Pergamon (also on Museum Island). But what the Bode makes vivid is that museums are what's in them, not around them. While the Bode building has been nicely renovated, the art is surprisingly third... More

This museum is a little out of the way from the remainder on Museum Island and not easy to get there as you have to cross the Spree off the island to get to a bridge near the entry and with the current building works it is not easy to negotiate the way round. However on finding the museum it... More

This has always been a Museum and it used to host a collection of very famous paintings. Most of them are now in the Gemäldegalerie/Kulturforum. But the place is worth visiting. And the artifacts, too. This Museum is not so (over) crowded like the others in the close neighbourhood.
