Pergamon Museum - Review
The Pergamon Museum is a museum of art. The Bode Museum and the Altes National Galerie weren’t sufficient to display the extensive collection of art in the possession of Germany. The Pergamon Museum had to be constructed on the site of an older museum as a result.
The building itself is beautiful. It has Corinthian columns at the entrance and beautiful sculpture adorns its exterior. It consists of 3 separate museums; the Collection of Classical Antiquities, the Museum of the Ancient Near East and the Museum of Islamic Art. Together they form the amazing collection of art from all over the world. The amazing works of art on display are sure to leave you enthralled as they have for many tourists over the year. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Berlin itinerary 7 days.

Pergamon Museum, Berlin Reviews
Some of the museum pieces are truly beautiful piece of history of mankind. Among them the best one was certainly the Ishtar gate. However, apart for the big pieces, the rest is quite poor and not very interesting. One of the major problem was probably with the audio guide which was quite boring and rarely explain anything about the history and functionality of each piece. Moreover, most of the labels for pieces not covered in the audio guide were only in German and I think that this is a bit ridiculous. Honestly, given the fact the that at the moment the Pergamon altar is not visible due to maintenance, I believe that the price of the ticket (12€) is a bit high.
This probably the most visited museum in Berlin and the line to get in is long. Reserve ahead if possible. It is well worth waiting and going in to see the many items from the ancient world in its collections. Allow at least 90 minutes or more if possible to see everything.
One of the beat museums I’ve ever been to about Middle Eastern archaeology with displays of artefacts that don’t appear anywhere else in the world. Only downside was the often inconsistent approach of offering English translations on many of the cases. Some were very thorough. Others were absent entirely. Quite a few rooms under construction too but otherwise a great place to spend a morning.
This is an AMAZING museum! You can learn so much here and there are SO many things to see! Additionally you feel like you are in that time, since there are giant and beautiful historic architectures that you can walk through! All in all this is a wonderful museum, where you can learn more, see beautiful history and not be bored!
Yes it gets warm when the temp is anything over 24 and yes there are queues but both are worth seeing the treasures inside, particularly the Ishtar Gate. We had been to the British Museum which complements this collection perfectly. Art, jewelry, architecture and carving from long ago all housed in a beautiful and well organised museum. Half the museum is being renovated but still the visit is worth every cent.
