“Museums”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The island was first viewed from a boat on the River Spree and attracted us as we learned we would be able to find a range of museums to suit all tastes.There are indeed lots to choose from and they are all different. They are all within walking distance and coffee shops offer relaxing breaks between visits.

“Buys museum pass!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Buy a pass and see it over three days other wise it's not worth seeing. You can go straight I and avoid the lines. Plus every museum as a free audio guide which made it all the more informative.

“Gallery museum was under construction.”
4 of 5 stars 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 stars 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
