Offering visitors a rare look into the ancient world, Pergamonmuseum attracts nearly 2 million people each year, making it the most-visited museum in Germany.

The museum contains reconstructed monumental buildings from around the world, including the giant Ishtar Gate and the Market Gate of Miletus.

  • a must to see! apart from the normal museum there is a total panorama of daily life in I think it was ancient Greece, there was so much to see in this panorama we had to spend quite a few hours to see...  more »
  • Interesting stuff. All very nice and tending to be interesting as any small or large museum.

  • I don't often enjoy museums and this was no exception, maybe it's not fair to write a review as I am no judge - but when I do find a good one I'll let you know and then you can be sure it must be great! The best bit was the building itself has very nice architecture inside with its super high ceilings and is really well lit with natural light.
  • This museum was worth visiting using the Museum Island ticket! Not sure if I would pay the separate admission price to see just this museum. The Ishtar Gate was beautiful, of course, but it was full of tourists and only a reconstruction. Still cool to see though!
