During and before ww2 German troups stole entire building in middle east and rebuilt them inside this museum. Those building are now kept safe from devastating wars still going on. Wish they'll go back home one day.

Unfortunately we did not get to see the whole museaum as it is under construction but the portion of the museum we saw was amazing. Breathtaking and giving pause for appreciation and thought. We are so glad we included this museum on our tour.

One of the main museums on museum island in Berlin. The Pergamon gates was pretty spectacular, especially the size of the exhibits. Definitely a must see

Sorry but have to say that all these precious historical artifacts were smuggled from Anatolia (Turkey), Mesopotamia and Eastern Mediterranean territory... Pergamon Altar, Sanctuary of Athena propylon, the body of Aphrodisias etc. are belongs to Turkey.

This museum offers marvellous displays from the cultures of Assyria, Egypt and Greece. As you enter, the Ishtar Gate will be an incredible view. If you want to meet Egyptian royalty, you can visit queen Nefertiti. We can recommend that you go early in the...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
