“Must see museum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We visited the Pergamon Museum, Museum Island, and it was well worth the 10 euro entry. The audio guide is great (included in the entry fee) as you choose what you want to hear about. We followed the rules - no large bags (including handbags) or coats draped over arms and left our stuff in a locker, so it was awkward carrying small items like purses or phones - particularly when lots of people didn't bother and weren't pulled up for it! The exhibits were great, especially the Ishtar gate - if you like archaeological exhibitions, this is for you.

“Truly world class museums - worth the entry fees.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

All of the Museumsinsel museums are worth the steep entry fees - they truly are world-class museums. Do yourself a favour and go on a weeknight when there are less people - a much more relaxing and informative experience. The audioguides are also highly recommendable. If you live in Berlin, invest in a SMB year pass - it's only 40€ for unlimited entry into all state museums, including extra exhibits, and a free audio guide at museums that offer them.
A real treat for museum fans.

“Stroll surrounded by Culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The problem will be finding the time to visit all the museums Berlin has to offer. Plan carefully as they can be quite time-consuming but well worth every step.

“So many things to see and not enough time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

You could spend several days looking at all the different places to visit. So make sure to do your homework prior to going to figure out which museums are must see's for you and your family.

“Excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The location is excellent, with the river Spree snaking around the museums. Very important exhibition in all museums.

Sadly, there were construction project all over the Island, and we had to walk around the construction sites to enter the Pergamon Museum. Anyway, it worths the trouble!
