  • Absolutely worth it, even for just the Ishtar gate alone. If you are in Berlin and have the opportunity to come here, do it. You might want to brush up on your art history first, because there are so many famous and important peices here. This is a very impressive museum.
  • One of the best museums in Berlin. The experience is really great and fantastic. Here you can find the famous Babilonia's Door. Really good. In the museum island, very easy to reach it with the metro underground. I suggest you this place if you like art.
