“Amazing Architecture”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We were a little museum-ed out and didn't want to wait on the lines, so we walked around on the island just enjoying the architecture and statuary. Seeing it all at sunset was beautiful.

TIP: Closest public transportation stop was the S-bahn Berlin Hackescher Markt

“Interesting”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

It takes days to all the museums properly but if you like museums then head to here. You can get a good value combined tickets. The museum are not as big or as good as those in London but still some interesting stuff see.

“The largest concentration of art and history anywhere”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Definitely worth a visit, you will need at least 2 or 3 days to visit all the museums on Museuminsel. If you have less time then you may need to pick and choose depending on your tastes - art, history, sculptures etc.

“Lots to see”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Just walked about this island and saw the outsides of each museum. Probably could spend a half a day or more gong thru the museums here.

“Good to walk through even without going in any museums”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

All of the museum buildings are beautiful and makes for a good walk through at night and during the day (when it will be much busier with tour groups). Starts with Berliner Dom at the corner - with good view of the TV tower.
