“Gallery museum was under construction.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Well, the museums are quite large and the exhibition are quite special. I think it is worth to go there. And normally it may take you half day if you really want to see all the exhibitions. If you stay in Berlin for may be a few days. I think you can consider the 72hours Berlin pass with museum island admission fee in it. It costs 33Euro for Zone AB, 36 euro for Zone ABC. It would be much cheaper if you buy the pass. The pass can be bought in airport. And you can validate it in the metro stations when you use it for the first time.

“Too much too see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

The Museumsinsel is 5 of the top museums all in very close proximity. There is just too much to see! Can get a ticket to all 5 museums and dip in and out.
Especially enjoyed seeing the bust of Nefertiti.
3rd floor of Neues museum shut for renovations

“Spend the day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museums and the cathedral on museum island. It is worth the long lines and crowds of people. This should be a must see and do on a visit to Berlin. Yes....checkpoint charlie, the Brandenburg gate and the remains of the Berlin Wall are all worth seeing but, visit the museums on this island formed by two canals. Public transportation to and from is easily available. Take bus 104 that begins at the zoo.

“Simply amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

I only wanted to see the Pergamon museum but the ticket cost 14 euros..while a day pass allowing entry to 5 museums cost 18euros..so I went for the latter. One big tip to avoid the queues..if you can, buy your tickets a day before around 1 hour before the museums close..usually 6pm except Thurs (8pm). Saves you at least an hour of queuing time!.
My favourite was the Pergamon museum for the sheer size of the exhibits..simply awesome!
The other highlight was the Egypt stuff at Neues Museum..the bust of Nefertiti was mesmerising!.
Lots of other interesting world renowned exhibits from the age of antiquities..good if you're an ancient history buff.
