A very conveniently concentrated and central collection of museums for Berlin tourists. Many many interesting things that I'd wanted to see for decades, the 'Trojan Gold' collected by Schliemann, the Nefertiti bust, the façade of the temple at Pergamon among others. In fact the Greek...More

This is a spectacular area where you are surrounded by museums and the Berlin Dom, masterpieces of Berlin architecture. If you do not have time to enjoy all museums, enjoy the garden that surrounds Neues Museum.

This little island houses some of the bigger museums to visit all conveniently located in the one place. When we visited it was a dull drizzly cold day, so although some of the outdoor areas looked nice, we didn't hang around to long outside.

It is great that they gathered all the museums in one place. You buy 1 ticket to go to the all of the museums on the island. The price is really and the student discount is shockingly good. The museums are really good as well.

One island, so many museums. Unique worldly artefacts, master art pieces through the centuries, peaceful and open park to just sit and enjoy the view. A relaxing day from the hassle and buzzle of Berlin.

One of the earliest reviewers mentioned that the museums were rebuilt in the 80s and 90s. This is not exactly true. I just refer you to the web for the details. If you like art, history and culture this area is a must visit. The...More

The many exquisit museums (losely organized by eras) can easily keep you busy for a week. A good reason to pray for rainy days during your time in Berlin!

Nothing more that I can add of value. WandererPilgrim's excellent recap said it all. Lots of walking and it will likely be cold at this time of year.

museum island tickets (6 Replies)
hey and thanks for your help. i was thinking of buying a 5 days Berlin Welcome Card when i land in The city but i found out that it does not include the museum island area, so i was wondering if there is a ticket i can buy to visit all the museums there ? i read that there is a "Area ticket Museum Island Berlin" for 18 euros, where can i buy that ? and does it allow me to visit all the museums on the island? thank you very much for your help

Agree with Abalada. The one-day Museum Island pass looks a great deal, but trying to do all four (you can't use it at the moment for the Alte Nationalgalerie, because of the special exhibition) would leave you completely exhausted and, to be honest, not much the wiser. It is still value for money if you just do two museums, but any more would just make my brain hurt. With the 3-day pass you can do the Kultur Forum and maybe Hamburger Bahnhof one day and Museum Island on the other two (or...More

Berlin welcome card vs Berlin welcomecard museum island (4 Replies)
We will be in Berlin for 6 days dec18-24. I have read the posts on TA regarding duration of validity and discounts offered and yet I am unclear which ones should I buy. We are 3 adults who arrive and depart from TXL airport and do wish to got to Potsdam for 1 day . I would like to see a few of the museums. Do the Berlin welcome card and the Berlin Welcome card museum island overlap in terms of transportation and discounts ? In which case does it make sense to buy a 3 day B welcome card (ABC...More

I am in Berlin now and we were very confused about the best card for us. As it turns out we stopped at a ticket booth in the train station after our trip from Munich. We were set to buy a 6 day travel card and were told it was cheaper to buy a week card for $30 pp. the attendent called it a welcome card without the discounts. This worked for us as the museums we wanted were not available on the normal Welcome card. We ended up with the $30 unlimited transportation for the 6 days we are here...More
