“Truly world class museums - worth the entry fees.”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

All of the Museumsinsel museums are worth the steep entry fees - they truly are world-class museums. Do yourself a favour and go on a weeknight when there are less people - a much more relaxing and informative experience. The audioguides are also highly recommendable. If you live in Berlin, invest in a SMB year pass - it's only 40€ for unlimited entry into all state museums, including extra exhibits, and a free audio guide at museums that offer them.
A real treat for museum fans.

“Stroll surrounded by Culture”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The problem will be finding the time to visit all the museums Berlin has to offer. Plan carefully as they can be quite time-consuming but well worth every step.

“So many things to see and not enough time”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

You could spend several days looking at all the different places to visit. So make sure to do your homework prior to going to figure out which museums are must see's for you and your family.

“Excellent location”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The location is excellent, with the river Spree snaking around the museums. Very important exhibition in all museums.

Sadly, there were construction project all over the Island, and we had to walk around the construction sites to enter the Pergamon Museum. Anyway, it worths the trouble!

“A MUST!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Some of the finest antiquities in the world are here. One must go see them when in Berlin. Be aware of long ticket lines.
