  • I can not believe connect me, that the Museum was confusing (or was). Each part Museum was clearly organized and gave a foreign world which is why we often visited it. On the Internet was to read that the South Pacific Division was closed in early November. On the ground we then discovered that North America and the Indian Museum (my main interest was) are not accessible. Ancient America is also to a large extent (as the Aztecs and old Peru), but one scares not afraid to demand the full entry of €8. At the weekend the Museum opens 11: 00 only, which is why we've been here a lot () time on vacation. But above all, it is annoying that whole three years before moving to the Humboldt Museum be deprived the public the rich ethnological collections. And then the apologies, no I not sorry!

  • In October, many halls were closed to the public. Because of this, moving the Museum seemed ill-conceived and illogical. I am interested in were the ancient halls of America and Africa. In the building there is a restaurant (large plate soup ~ 5 euro) and a café. A lot of supervisors.

  • If you are interested in ethnography and Asian Art, then this is well worth a visit. The leafy suburb of Dahlem where it is located, is also very pleasant in itself, and a nice contrast with central B...  more »

  • My second favorite state museum in Berlin. A fantastic range of collections, wonderful curating and presentation. Being redesigned at the moment, so I can't wait to see what the future holds for this wonderful museum.
  • Fair ticket pricing, huge collection. Unfortunately only half of the descriptions are English, and hopefully the new museum will be more critical to the question of how these artifacts ended up in the museum.
  • Very nice collection. If you are interested in ethnology and anthropology, then you must visit.
  • Wonderful museum, definitevely worth going there. Be ready to be fascinated. It is a huge museum.
  • Fascinating museum, witness to crafts, arts and cultures which no longer exist in the world. Beautiful sections on Polynesia/Melanesia (the boats are a must), Mesoamerica, Africa and the fascinating reconstruction of an ancient Buddhist cave-temple from northern China, including some of the original artwork from 5th century CE,plus a small but good exhibition of musical instruments including a complete Javan gamelan orchestra; while I was there some young people were practising on these instruments: extraordinary sound! You can spend a day there.
