“Buys museum pass!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Buy a pass and see it over three days other wise it's not worth seeing. You can go straight I and avoid the lines. Plus every museum as a free audio guide which made it all the more informative.

“Gallery museum was under construction.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Well, the museums are quite large and the exhibition are quite special. I think it is worth to go there. And normally it may take you half day if you really want to see all the exhibitions. If you stay in Berlin for may be a few days. I think you can consider the 72hours Berlin pass with museum island admission fee in it. It costs 33Euro for Zone AB, 36 euro for Zone ABC. It would be much cheaper if you buy the pass. The pass can be bought in airport. And you can validate it in the metro stations when you use it for the first time.

“Too much too see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

The Museumsinsel is 5 of the top museums all in very close proximity. There is just too much to see! Can get a ticket to all 5 museums and dip in and out.
Especially enjoyed seeing the bust of Nefertiti.
3rd floor of Neues museum shut for renovations

“Spend the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museums and the cathedral on museum island. It is worth the long lines and crowds of people. This should be a must see and do on a visit to Berlin. Yes....checkpoint charlie, the Brandenburg gate and the remains of the Berlin Wall are all worth seeing but, visit the museums on this island formed by two canals. Public transportation to and from is easily available. Take bus 104 that begins at the zoo.
