There was a fair bit of the exhibition under reconstruction but it didn’t take away from what was available to see. The Ishtar Gate and the market gate of Miletus were truly impressive. And I am not big on museums but I found this really...More

The first part of the museum was very interesting but there was so much information you struggle to chose what to listen to on the auduo guide!

Really impressive museum, representing an age of time not enough studied in Italian schools. Better to visit with a guide

A place every visitor of Berlin should see. A aignificant amount of archeological monuments, very well preserved (such as thabgate of Babylon), in wich each chamber take you to a different historical period...Really amazing and worth paying for

Definitely not a must if you came to Berlin to find out some german history. Ticket costs around 12euro which is a lot for what it has to offer if you’re not an archaelogy lover

Although there is quite a few exhibit closed for restoration it still worth a visit. It’s never going to be exhibited in another country as of the shear size of it (The gates of Babylon). There are plenty of other Asian arts and Artefacts to...More

The museum mostly deals with the history of the middle east and the empires in that area. It has some excellent exhibits and reconstructions as well as descriptions of both the cultural history and the archaeological research. Lots of "attendants to advise if you need...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
