As a tourist, I hoped more about this museum, but I am not a expert. It has audio guide, with a lot of languages. Better than Neues Museum from my point of view.

If you want to be impressed with gorgeous Babylon gates, gasping from their size and color, you have to come here. Great tapestry collection, some outstanding pieces of Islamic arts. It is not huge but very well organized. Collections are interesting and sometimes breathtaking -...More

Heard so much about this museum and the collections, but only half of it was there as they have moved the collections whilst undergoing construction work. This is a real shame, as it meant much longer queues for tickets (1 hr wait), so do book...More

Fabulous museum with several massive and stunning exhibits such as the Ishtar Gate, the Market Gate from Miletus, and the stunning Aleppo Zimmer. It is not too big, and each exhibit seems beautifully chosen. We loved it.

The museum is full of history wonders, a great way of spending a few hours. You will walk through ancient empires and glaze at treasures from lost worlds

This is probably the second best museum on the island after the Bodemuseum I think. It has some quite imposing items on display, with the Ishtar Gate reconstruction taking pride of place. It is quite amazing to think that something as magnificent as this once...More

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

You will be there in low season, so less likely to need it. However, if you are on a tight schedule, it could be worth getting faster access. Loads to see in there so allow time and have fun!
