Easy to get to from most of Berlin.
Beautiful architecture with some simply stunning buildings.
Well worth a visit to look round alone, even without going to the museums.

To know and appreciate what you see and understand it is best to visit with a tour guide we did and do not regret. The history is long and via the Prussian King to the National Socialist era and the world wars to the DDR and now, all left traces and impacted the island
If you like history and art of course, THE place to go and see !

Even if you don't want to visit any of the museums it is still well worth visiting museum island for the great buildings and surrounding architecture. This is a great place to stroll around and take in the atmosphere. I would also recommend a walk along the north bank back towards the Reichstag building taking in the parks, bars and restaurants on the way. There are free deckchairs to use along the way.

we visited the deutches,altes,bode and neues and would have visited the pergamon if there wasn't a massive queue. We used our berlin welcome card which got us access to all these museums for "free". The only one that we had to get a ticket for was the altes, the others we just showed or had our welcome card scanned.
Bode = renaissance so lots of religious stuff
Altes = Greek and roman
deutches = old Germany through to modern day inc armour displays
Neues = Roman, Egyptian, Stone and iron age

All the buildings in the island are beautifully restored and the cathedral is right next to the Altes.
