In this museum you can watch some replicas of ancient monuments, such as the Gate of Ishtar and the Pergamon. Really impressive. The buste of Nefertete is one of the most beautiful and delicate sculptures ever made.

What I saw of the museum was interesting, but about 3/4 of the museum is undergoing extensive renovations. So you might want to hold off on visiting this museum until the renovations are complete in about two years. HOWEVER, if you do go, make sure...More

All the museums in Berlin are good but this one will blow your socks off. I wish I had gotten an audio guide and spent a lot more time there. I would have learned so much more. Fantastic!

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
