Great exhibit of Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquities including jewellery and coins, along with pottery and sculptures. If you love history, you'll love this! Not expensive and not as crowded as other museums.
We arrived and told that my wife's handbag was too big. It was normal in size. In it was money, passports and valuables. We were told to check it in. We did not and left;however, the next lady to arrive had the same size handbag...More

The museum itself is not big but I spent...More
A very beautiful building. However I did not get a chance to visit the inside. I bet there are quite a lot of interesting artefacts that have been preserved over time!
The next time I am in Berlin, I will definitely take a look at...More

Great collection! Surprising exhibit!

The museum was a nice visit, and seeing as it wasn't too expensive it was nice value for money (you can also buy combo tickets here for the other major museums on museum island). I have been to many Greek and Roman museums in my...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
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
