Well everyone goes on and on about the Nefertiti bust being the best thing in the museum, but I disagree. Although it is a good artefact there are many better things in here....they might not be as precious but they are a lot more fascinating....More

The museum is excellent and is worth a visit in conjunction with the Pergammon. The amazing bust of Nefrititi is here in its own room.

If you decide to go to the "Neues museum", keep in mind that it is originally located is former East Germany, and that continuous refurbishments are ongoing. The Nefertit bust is fine, but the other artifacts are sometimes even more impressive.

The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

First: as you are planning to go to seven of the State museums: all five of the Museum Island museums, plus the Gemäldegalerie and the Neue Nationalgalerie, you should get the 40 euro Annual Museum Pass. You will then be able to spread your museum visits instead of cramming them all into three days, and that will open out your whole itinerary. The Annual Pass pays for itself in 4-5 visits, so it also makes it possible for you to split your visits and just "drop in" a second or third time...More

Time for Pergamon and Neues Museum (3 Replies)
Hi! I am planning to visit Berlin with 2 kids 7 and 10 years old. We would like to see the Pergamon Museum and the Neues Museum. But I am afraid that the kids will be tired. How much time do you think that Pergamon will take us (not a thorough look - only the highlights maybe) and how much time the Neues (they want to see the mummies...). Do you think that we can combine them and see them in a day since they are both in Museum Insel? Thanks Maria

Response fromAlabastron|
Of course you can. Just spend as long as your children’s attention span and stamina allow, and then leave when they’ve had enough. Even if you see only the mummies and Nefertiti in the Neues Museum and the Ishtar gate and the Miletus gate the Pergamon Museum it will be worth it.
