One of the most outstanding museums devoted to the ancient world. Much like the British Museum in London there's fierce debate about the legitimacy of some of the 'acquisitions' but nevertheless that doesn't detract from the privilege of being able to see them up close. There are three main collections: antiquity, Islamic art and the Middle East. Must sees: the Ishatar Gate from Babylon and the Pergamon Altar, from which the museum takes its name.Recommended for:

This is amazing. Simply one of the world's best museums, especially if you are into antiquities. Rivals the British Museum in size and scope of the collections. Magnificent.Recommended for:

This is one of my favorite, museums in Europe actually almost top of the list. Pergamon museum is situated at the museum island and famous due to its archeological display. My all time favorite is the pergamon altar, a sight to behold! Many of the finds came from Greece, Turkey and the middle east.Recommended for:

This the museum i liked most on the museum insel. This museum alone is almost worth a visit to Berlin. First you enter a large room that shows the frieze of the Pergamon altar, then you face the Market Gate of Miletus and next you walk through the Babylonian Ishtar gate. Absolutely wonderful ! And there is a lot more to see. They are renovating and adding an extra wing to the museum, which will all together take more then 10 years.Recommended for:

If you need to visit just one museum in Berlin this is the one! You will be amazed of how they managed to move the whole Pergamon temple and the market inside the musem! Also amazing the gate of Persepolis! Don't expect anything German here..

The Pergamon is one of five museums on Museuminsel, by the River Spree. It houses several monumental, original-sized and reconstructed buildings from Antiquity, such as the Pergamon Altar, the Ishtar Gate and the Market Gate of Miletus, all consisting of parts removed and transported from Turkey in the early 20th century. The Pergamon is subdivided into the Antiquity collection, the Middle East museum, and the museum of Islamic Art.

The namesake of the Pergamon Museum on Museum Island. The Pergamon Altar stands as the first visual piece you see as you enter the museum. You'll be surrounded by fellow guests as you walk along the steps. The altar itself is pretty small, but the steps leading up to it are fairly wide and, for a lack of a better word, epic.

This is great you go to Pergamon in Turkey and the original Great Altar is here. This is one major piece of architecture in the building to see and experience. The museum is in an area called museum island and it is worth it to get the museum pass so that you can visit the ones you like and just see the good stuff and then go to another place.

There's a greek temple, rebuilt, inside the museum. An actual Greek temple. Obviously the Pergamon, one of the best museums in the world, has much more to offer, but for someone who's never been, that should offer some perspective on the size and willingness-to-pull-out-all-the-stops of this museum.
I think I spent 4 hours here wandering the halls, stopping at anything that caught my eye. I could have spent days, weeks even, though. If you're at all into history, sculptures, and larger-than-life exhibits, the Pergamon will be right up your alley.Recommended for:

Extraordinario museo. Una obligación ir mientras se visita Berlin. La cutlura griega y asiria en su esplendor. De especial inter-es, el templo de Pergamon, original, descubierto a finales deel siglo XiX y reconstruído en sus instalaciones. También la casa de Aleppo y las puertas de Babilonia
