  • Is one of the museums of art and architecture more important in the world. Built between 1909 / 30. It hosts a wide collection of relics and temples, undoubtedly the most impressive is the Ishtar Gate, dating back to the 6th century BC. NOT TO BE MISSED

  • We visited the Pergamon Museum in February and time was good for that purpose. It was raining almost daily in Berlin and museum visits were good indoor activities. Timing was also perfect because ther...  more »
  • I have to admit that I'm not a person that likes to visit any Museum, but after seeing this change of opinion, is impressive, the gateway to Babylon ufffff of searches with the mouth, the same with the gate of Miletus in Pergamum, and all the rest without a doubt be in Berlin and not to visit it would be a big mistake.

  • Some fantastic exhibits including the impressive Ishtar Gate. We went on a Sunday morning and did have to queue for about half an hour to get in, but once inside were enthralled. The excellent audio guide helped to provide detail and explanations of what we know about the ancient treasures that were on show. The museum is undergoing renovation and some of the exhibits aren't available to view, but there is still more than enough to keep your attention for a good couple of hours.
  • Where else can you see an intact 2500 year old gate from Babylon without actually going to Iraq? The gate which is part original and part restoration is magnificent, the blue tiles and intricate detail of Sirrush help it come to life. Imagine the scene in candle light when there were no electronic screens. The free audio guide is essential and finally don't miss the Islamic exhibit on the 3rd floor.
  • Incredible collection!! The prices are so reasonable too! I would recommend the 3 day pass for all 5 museums because there is just so much to see!
  • Absolutely wonderful place and one of the top places that you shouldn't miss in the city of Berlin. A very old architecture and i can tell you if you know the history of it, then believe me you will literally be jumping in joy watching it in front of you. I strongly recommend everyone to visit this place.
  • I would come here if I can only choose one museum to visit. The doors inside are just incredible, like out of the world! Immerse yourself in it and feel the history.
