Museum Island, Berlin Reviews

  • Brilliant collection of museums in Berlin. The best is the Pergamonmuseum. This statue below is of the Roman emperor Trajan. Brilliant collection of Roman and Greek art and architecture in this museum and many others. Definitely worth a visit if you want a break from the war museums that Berlin is full of. 5.out of 5 for me. 18 euro gets you into all museums there.

  • Amazing! There are all kinds of antiques and ancients, including gates from Syria, some pieces of architecture from Iraq, the whole Rome, most importantly the original "Nefertiti Bust". There are so many museums in the island and there are many things to see. I'd recommend to go there early.

  • Must visit place for all the museum lovers. You can get here some breathtaking view. And also good place for photography.

  • Awesome place to go in Berlin if raining or otherwise. There are 5 museums although the best one (by far) was the museum with the Ishtar Gate (forgot its name). Didn’t love it as much as I could as almost everything is in German and there’s limited info for English speakers.

  • A must visit place for a person visiting Berlin. A proper visit would last two to three days. It's massive.
