Wonderful and worth every penny. Loved the Ishtar Gate and the Miletus Gate, as well as all the Assyrian material, especially on Ashanasapal II. Useful lockers too.

12euro entry is pretty good, we werent that interested in it but still spent well over an hour learning more about it all, however I can imagine that for someone who is really fascinated by it all it would be crazy

There were a few impressive exhibits - the Ishtar Gate reconstruction, for instance. But the cost of entrance was expensive, especially when half of the museum was closed for renovation.

Best Museum in the world. Not too big. Not too small. It shows the progression of workmanship in humanity with several large architectural pieces.

Pergamon Museum was fantastic for me, having exhibited ancient times from Pergamon, Mesopotamia and variety of Islamic civilizations. Although the most important piece, which was Pergamon Altar was not on show because of intensive restoration works, what I saw was still 'a must see' exhibition....More

I don’t think it’s necessary to buy tickets in advance. Buy them when you arrive - in March there shouldn’t be a need to purchase ahead of time. Also , the audio tour which is included in your ticket price is one of the best... More
