A little bit doubtful if I should visit the Pergamon considering that the Grand Altar is not on exhibit. A major renovation is ongoing probably to enlarge the museum. The current exhibits are interesting and informative, esp - the Gates of Babylon - so it...More

A museum with a lot of wow factor. I challenge anyone not to be quite overwhelmed by the gates of Babylon! The Pergamon is a museum for everyone. You can read about the exhibits or you can just gawp! It's pretty relaxed & you can...More

Pity the museum was under renovation so parts were closed off Deapite that the Syrian and Turkish collections were interesting. I enjoyed the audio guide narration - right mix of detail and overview

Definitely a must visit although I do recommend you get there early as it is the most popular. Also some of the museums are closed on Mondays

The museum has recreated ancient architecture. It's a combination of original parts and reproductions. Beautifully blended. Gives the viewer an insight into the scale and beauty of the settings. Only a part of the museum was open to the public when i went, so spent...More

Pergamon museum communicates heavily that the Pergamon Altar is closed, so no problems there. However, as half of the museum is under construction, you actually do not see that much. They should call the museum "Ishtar gate and friends", as that is the only great...More

We arrived at Pergamon with great expectations. Half of the museum is under reconstruction, so it's quite surprising that one can only enter for the original price. Other than the epic Ishtar Gate, the museum is pretty dull, and its collection is not enough for...More

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

What is the best way to get into this museum if you have purchased an advanced ticket for it? Is there a special entrance so you don't have to stand in line with those who don't already have a ticket? Thank you.

Hello (: Are there any lockers in the Pergamon museum? Or a storage room where we could put our suitcases? And if not - where could we put them? We would be arriving the Pergamon Museum directly from the airport, complete with the luggage, as there are no lockers now in the Schonfeld Airport, and we only have a few hrs in the city. Tnx (: Michal
