  • Despite the fact that a party is in the works, Assembly of Babylon is impressive and Roman mounted inside the city. The condition is fantastic and worth the half hour we had to wait to enter. A great Museum.

  • We decided to visit museum first thing in the morning to skip those long lines of which all booklets and website warn tourists (according to that, you might wait in a line for 2 hours). We came just f...  read more »
  • Louvre - Paris, Hermitage - St.Petersburg, MOMA - New York of all top-class museums. But five museums which will soon be centrally connected by a spectacular Chipperfield construction, that is unique in the world. Unique as the demolition of cultural history: from the bronze age Egypt, Greece and Rome to the expressionism of the modern era. A long weekend is almost too short to see everything.

  • One of the few museums on the "museum island Berlin". You shoud have been at this museum. It´s about the ancient, beginn of the human culture, Agypte, Babylon, and more! You can compare the museums on the museum island Berlin to the Luvré in Berlin and in London!
  • If you can gaze upon the reconstruction of Ishtar Gate and not be humbled by the smallness of an individual's experience of life, you are either a god or think you are one. The paintings reconstructing the various sites at the time of their heyday are also helpful. Point off as the island isn't yet fully refurbished.
  • Cool to see and many many ancient artifacts. Unfortunately half the museum is under construction as of june 2016. Also i was hoping to see some ancient weapons but most artefacts were chunks of walls and statues
  • Visit newly opened 3D Model of the Pergamon Altar. Simply stunning. Best museum ever so full of history and artefacts. Simply cannot miss it.
  • Just an awesome experience! I'm glad I went in, there were some closed areas but not many. The whole museum is awesome and very big. It's €12 or if you have a student card, you can easily get a reduced price for €6 (There are other ways of having the discount like age range and things like that).
