  • 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.
  • Very nice collection. If you are interested in ethnology and anthropology, then you must visit.
  • 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.
  • Wonderful museum, definitevely worth going there. Be ready to be fascinated. It is a huge museum.
  • Fantastic museum with an impressive collection beautifully displayed.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
