When we went, only the Ishtar Gate and the Islamic Art Exhibits were open. The Ishtar Gate and the procession wall were really one of a kind. The Islamic Art was well organized by date and region but does not measure up to the British...More

Unless you are fascinated by this sort of thing, I would skip it. Maybe it's not fair to the museum but I was more interested in German history. It was difficult to tell what was genuine artifact and what was replica. Large section was closed....More

This is the only museum in the world that has vast walls and fabulous remains of the ancient cultures of Mesopotamia. German archaeologists moved them to this museum around 1900 and very probably thus saved them for us to view

Even as it is undergoing expansion and renovation and some galleries are closed, it is breathtaking. The Ishtar Gate itself is worth the price of admission. Go early, by 10 am to avoid the long lines.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
