No real thematic overview, restorations ongoing everywhere but still full price admission, most of the pieces reconstructed replicas. Interesting but not worth the time investment

You should know that, at time of writing, this place is undergoing significant renovation which shut a lot of it down. What remains is still spectacular. The Ishtar Gate is what you see upon entry. Spectacular. The open exhibits are Assyrian and Islamic, so no...More

This is under renovation at the moment but what was there was great. If I knew I would have waited to go when it is completed in 2019 as I think it would be amazing!

This museum contains the Ishtar Gate (see in the photo), as well as the monumental-size Hellenistic Pergamon altar (which is now being restored). Although the museum is under restoration, many works are still accessible.

Interesting collection of Middle Eastern artefacts, some of spectacular scale. Includes the Pergamon Altar, the Ishtar Gate of Babylon, the Market Gate of Miletus reconstructed from the ruins found in Anatolia, as well as the Mshatta Facade. Currently includes a display on Yemeni architecture. One...More

The blue tiled arch is still there but not much else due to the current renovations going on so keep that in mind when planning your trip.

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

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

The entrance is ok for disabled people. There is an elevator in the ground floor right after the ticket booth. I think that they should also have a toilet which is also on ground floor. They were reconstructing the entrance... More
