Any one who has any interest in world history and in the Bible simply must visit this reconstruction. It stands as testimony to the grandeur of empire and Babylon in particular. It is also a timely reminder to our modern empire builders that the mighty do fall!!!

its not a very big museum. the signature Ishtar Gate of Babylon is really quite impressive and worth the visit. there's a lot of saying about how long the queue was. My experience was I asked the lady at the Tourist Centre to help book a time slot for me when I bought the museum card. I'd wanted to do... More

This museum exceeded my expectations. It's stunning to see a temple and gate reconstructed. The wall and gate of Babylon were beautiful. If you're interested in ancient history/culture definitely go. The ticket price includes a detailed audio tour which is very educational and really good! Two downsides 1. Some of the exhibits are closed due to reconstruction (I assume. There... More

This is one of the five or six wonderful museums one museum island in Berlin. The ancient materials have been well preserved, having been protected during World War II, they are still reconstructing parts of the museum and the museum complex. Parts of this museum will not be completely finished for construction until the end of 2018 or 2019, but... More

Loved this museum just as much the second visit. Even though you don't get to see the pergamon gates it's still so worth the time. The museum is clearly laid out and the free audio guide is easy to use. I did find most of the staff (with the exception of the girl on the front desk) surly and brusque... More

This museum holds ancient reconstructed Egyptian temples and Egyptian artifacts. It is definitely world class. Unfortunately when I was there this month, large portions were being renovated so that access as limited.

Fast end of day visit that took only 45 minutes but there's are many advantages in visiting an emptying museum. From the moment we enter, we were greeted with the awe inspiring blue wall of Ishtar. The rest was also gigantic statues, whole courtyards, huge columns that evoke the grandeur of the ancients. My favourite museum in Berlin.

While my study group was in Berlin we spent an afternoon at the Pergamon Museum. The Pergamon Museum is on Berlin's "Museum Island" and just a short walk from the Neues Museum where we had spent the morning exploring art objects from the Amarna Period of Egypt. The Pergamon Museum has large galleries to accommodate more monumental pieces including The... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
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 way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
