  • There's a lot to see here. You have paintings from the Renaissance, late Renaissance, modern, ancient paintings, paintings from every period really! They have a nice coin collection, there are artifacts from Egypt and ancient Rome. Sculptures and paintings from Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain among other places. One piece of advice: don't go here if you don't have a lot of time to spend (that probably applies to most museums in Berlin though).
  • Go if you have time. Not so many interesting pieces inside. The entrance is astonishing and you go up to the café for free. wow
  • The Bodemuseum is quite pricey for the size of it but does offer a nice array of exhibitions and different pieces from around the world. I would suggest buying a museum pass and visiting all the museum's there.
  • I went to this place on a Friday about 2 hours before it closed. The place was practically empty. Feeling like I had the whole museum to myself it was amazing to see everything and have the freedom to move around and not feel rushed. The highlights were the wide range of coins and religious pieces to see. Take time and make sure you see every corner of this museum. There are so many almost hidden areas it helps to make a note of which rooms you've been in or pick up a floor plan. If you are not very religious you could find this museum boring but it's flooding with history so if this is your thing it's a must see museum.
  • The building itself is worth a visit. You can also see the entrance Hall without a ticket. The collections are important — I specifically liked the museum of Byzantine art.
