“Quieter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

I love Greek and Roman art. Lots of it has been taken away from their original places, therefore I came to this museum. It is a very quiet affair, probably the less known museum in the whole Island, but the artifacts range from interesting to beautiful.

“A quiet and interesting museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Altes Museum is a wonderful neo-classical building facing onto the Lustgarten and was designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel; in fact, I believe that it is regarded as his masterpiece. The large granite bowl outside the main entrance steps was originally going to be placed on the roof as its crowning glory! The collection is of classical antiquities including statuary, vases, etc. and is well laid out, definitely worth a visit for those interested in this subject.
Remember that when you purchase a Berlin Welcome card, ask to include the Museum Island and then admission to this museum is free.

“Nice, but a little dissapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

It is a nice museum, but doesn't have anything interesting in its collection. If you ever been in any Roman museum, especially in Vatican museums, you will be dissapointed.

“Altes Museum is excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The Altes Museum seems to get less attention than the Pergamon and Neues Museums, but it was actually my favourite of the three. It has some wonderful red figure vases and statues, and is well laid out. The fact that it was also less busy than the other museums on Museum Island made it more pleasant to go round.
