Offering visitors a rare look into the ancient world, Pergamonmuseum attracts nearly 2 million people each year, making it the most-visited museum in Germany. It features an extensive collection of ancient Greek, Middle-Eastern, and Islamic art and architecture. Located on Museum Island in the heart of the city, this site was designed by architect Alfred Messel and built from 1910 to 1930. The museum contains reconstructed monumental buildings from around the world, including the giant Ishtar Gate and the Market Gate of Miletus. Be sure to see the Pergamon Altar, a massive marble shrine after which the museum is named. Save time by booking your tickets online. Pick up a free audio guide at the entrance.

  • It is worth entering. He has works of great historical value. The Museum has three or four captive parts: the gate of Ishtar in the gardens of Babylon, the sanctuary of Athena, the altar of Pergamon, and the Miletus room

  • Always a pleasure to visit this museum. Unfortunately we found that half of it was closed, but this was still more than enough to entertain us for almost three hours. Highly recommended!
  • Well the organization for this museum is terrible. You are standing outside in the cold, for 40min because only 2 guys sell tickets. And there were 6 other guys standing outside the whole time, doing nothing!!! They really should do better. And the museum it's ok and all (definitely worth seeing), but the problem is that more then 50% of the museum is closed off. So you can see the video how it will look in 2019 but right now you are stuck with less then 50%. Ah and you have to pay the full pride for the 50%. That means 12€. Should be cheaper in my opinion.
  • A must when you visit Berlin. The Ishtar gate is fantastic. Remember that you can book tickets on the web to get access at a specific date and time and skip the queue. The queue can be daunting at times. You can easily spend hours here.
  • A lot of exhibits are unavailable due to construction. The Pergamon Alter, the namesake of the museum and main attraction has not been on display for quite some time and might not be for at least a few more years. With all this in mind it seems a little cheeky to charge full price admission for an incomplete experience. The exhibits that are available to view are still quite impressive though, in particular the Ishtar Gate.
  • Totally worth it! Be aware the you need 1 euro coin to keep your belongings in the locker. Do not miss this museum if you need to choose from many options.
