Incredible collection.

Even tho the museum is not that big, the collection it holds is incredible. A must for anyone that likes history. Went at the end of November and it was not packed at all.

it is to bad they are undergoing a construction remodeling, that limited access to 1/2 the museum. But we got to see the gates of istar. Well worth the time, and I can't wait to go back and see the rest of the museum in a few years. Get the audio guide You could easily spend a day in the... More

Nice place, but the pergamon gat won't be available to see until 2018 or so. So if you want to see that only, save a few bucks there. They hit a water pipeline of some sort and is taking them longer to open it to public.

Simply they have cheated. The 2/3 of the museum is closed for renovation. No adequate warning exist but the endurance fee remains high. Pergamo and the rest Greek roman are not available to the visitors

The pergamon alter exhibition was closed and opens again in seven years, which is bad luck on our part! We enjoyed the rest of the museum though, if you're into stone work wow, there's a good deal of really beautiful stuff.

Unfortunately did not have time to see it all, but it is breath-taking. So much to see, and so impressive. Well laid out. One little tip: Leave coats and bags in the lockers provided. Not too crowded in November.

Despite portions of this wonderful museum being closed for renovation, this is a museum I have wanted to visit for many years. It did not disappoint. Apart from the brick reliefs from the Ishtar gate (other parts of which are in Istanbul), the whole of the gate of Miletus is displayed (sometimes I wonder whether that should be in Miletus... More

Loved this museum. The Ishtar gate was transported by the Germans from Babylon Iraq in the early 1900s and its incredible!

We went to the museum to see the Gates of Ishtar and were not disappointed the layout of exhibits is fantastic and for us the explanatory notes in english were a real help in understanding the timeline of the various cultures that are exhibited.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
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 way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
