“TONS To See - Best Deal”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

There are several museums on Museum Island. When you go into one of them, ask for the all-museum pass. For a very low price (around 7 Euros) you can get a pass to all the museums. Each museum houses different collections. They vary vastly and are immensely interesting. You could spend an entire day - or two - venturing through these museums!

“Something for every art-lover”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

With five museums, there is something for anyone who likes art. I visited the Alte Nationalgalerie, because of the paintings of Friedrich, but most visitors of the Museuminsel visit the Pergamom Museum.

“very nice atmosphere”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

the Island is really fancy and beautiful. But certain part of buildings is under restoration now. It is a pleasure just to walk between the monumental buildings and along Spree!

“Must see in Berlin”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I visited their temporary exhibition "Russians and Germans – history, culture (and something)", which was very nice. They had free audio guides in multiple languages, making my 9-year old sister patiently watch the entire exhibition without complaining.

I also paid 4€ (student) extra to see the rest of the museums. The Pergamont is also a must-see. It was truly amazing! Can't really describe it, you have to see it yourself! It is well worth the time and money.

The Nefertiti bust was incredibly beautiful too. You can't go to Berlin if you are a cultured person and not see the Museumsinsel. Get a Berlin card or pay the small extra fee and spend a day there, watching whatever interests you in particular.
