Museums are the top places to visit in Berlin

Berlin is so full of memories, it’s the natural place for museums. Even after the damage done to the city nearly 80 years ago, there’s much to preserve and the number of museums continues to grow. The usual estimate is 170. The Museumsinsel and Kulturforum museums and their extraordinary range of Prussian-German, Classical, art and archaeological heritage are the highlights and among the best places to visit in Germany.

It’s a great year to visit these museums. In 2019, Berlin marks 100 years since a revolution and the start of Germany’s first experiment in democracy, as well as 30 years since the Berlin Wall was breached and German reunification began. Berlin’s rebuilt city palace is also expected to reopen this year – as a museum.

Work going back almost 30 years on the structure and organisation of the 19 state museums of Staatliche Museen zu Berlin continues, meaning some key sites and collections are closed or offered only in limited form while renovations are carried out or new facilities are completed. Staatliche Museen zu Berlin has full details of the city’s principal museums at

A museum island

Only Berlin could name an island — Museumsinsel, actually part of an island — after museums. The grand Museumsinsel museums of art and antiquity are a product of Germany’s pre-eminence in Classical studies late in the 19th century and early 20th century.

The Museumsinsel museums (Bode-Museum, Pergamonmuseum, Alte Nationalgalerie, Neues Museum and Altes Museum) are artworks in themselves, heritage-listed by UNESCO. As well as the visual arts there is an emphasis on art in antiquity. All admit visitors under 18 free and other concessions are available. A day ticket to all the area’s museums (available at any) costs €18/9. To reach Museumsinsel, take S3, 5 or 9 to Hackescher Markt and cross the Friedrichsbrücke Spree bridge at Burgstraße or take the U-Bahn or S-Bahn to Friedrichstraße and cross at Bodestraße. Buses 100 and 200 stop nearby at Lustgarten. The recently built James-Simon-Galerie is being developed as an information and visitor reception pavilion for Museumsinsel as well as an exhibition space.

The Bode-Museum (Tu-W & F-Su 10-18, Th 10-20, €12/6) was renamed for its great founder and curator. Wilhelm von Bode assembled the basis of the exhibition of sculptures, Byzantine art from more than 1500 years, medieval European works including the carving of Tilman Riemenschneider, and the coin cabinet. The 1904 building required ingenious engineering by Ernst von Ihne to be fitted to its site at the north point of the island, reached from Monbijoubrücke.

Classical art is the subject of Altes Museum (Tu-W & F-Su 10-18, Th 10-20, €10/5), matched by its restored and colonnaded Lustgarten facade, designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel and completed in 1828. Greece and Rome are represented with Etruscan art in the standing antiquities collection.

Most of the rest of the state-owned antiquities are displayed in the Pergamonmuseum complex (F-W 10-18, Th 10-20, combination ticket €19/9.50 for Das Panorama, special exhibitions and the Museum für Islamische Kunst) on Am Kupfergraben. Central are two great artefacts from Aegean Turkey, the Pergamon altar (closed to the public until 2023 by renovations) and the Market Gate of Miletus. Das Panorama, a 360-degree recreation artwork of ancient Pergamon by Yadegar Asisi, puts the altar in its contemporary context (€6/3 as a supplement to Museumsinsel or other passes). In the associated Vorderasiatisches Museum is the extraordinary reconstruction of the Ishtar (or Lion) Gate and processional way from the walls of Babylon and the facade of the throne room of Nebuchadnezzar II. These great works are largely reassembled inside the museum with interpretive exhibits and preserved antiquities, along with a model imagining the Tower of Babel. The connected Museum für Islamische Kunst features the superb and intricate Aleppo Room and the Mshatta facade from Jordan. During renovation and extension work at Pergamonmuseum, longer waiting times are common and museum pass holders cannot jump these queues. Berlin tourism authorities recommend reserving a free timed admission tickets at the museum, or at a VisitBerlin office, earlier in the day travellers want to visit. The full new museum layout is expected to be accessible in 2026.

The collection of the Ägyptisches Museum Berlin, best known for the Nefertiti bust, and its papyrus archive have required several homes in Berlin but are at present in Neues Museum (F-W 10-18, Th 10-20, €12/6 with special exhibitions) on Bodestraße. With it is the Museum Vor- und Frühgeschichte with Heinrich Schliemann’s Troy collection and the golden ceremonial artefact known as the Berlin Gold Hat.

The Alte Nationalgalerie (Tu-W & F-Su 10-18, Th 10-20, €10/5) is a forum for 19th century painting and sculpture, notably the Romantic paintings of Caspar David Friedrich, the works of Adolph von Menzel, including paitings documenting the life of Frederick the Great, and the French Impressionist painters Renoir, Monet and Manet.

Scheduled to open late in 2019 on Museumsinsel is the Humboldt Forum, a building project combining a reconstruction of the former royal palace Berliner Schloß, the new site for the Museum für Asiatische Kunst and Ethnologisches Museum, temporary exhibition spaces and educational spaces. The museums will occupy the second and third floors. The east, south and south-east Asian exhibits go back to 5000BCE, including religious items and the cultures along the Silk Road. The ethnographic collection approaches Asian, African, American and Pacific cultures from the viewpoint of European colonial influences and increasing globalisation.


The Neue Nationalgalerie of 20th century art, centre of the Kulturforum museums at Potsdamer Straße 50 on the south-east fringe of the Tiergarten, is being refurbished and there is no firm reopening date. Nearby, the Gemäldegalerie (Tu-W & F 10-18, Th 10-20, Sa-Su 11-18, €14/7) at Matthäikirchplatz 4 has works from the 13th to 18th centuries but the highlights are the old masters of Titian, Holbein, Dürer, Rembrandt and Botticelli. The adjacent Kunstgewerbemuseum (Tu-F 10-18, Sa-Su 11-18, €8/4) presents decorative arts including medieval worked gold and silver, majolica (tin-glazed Italian Renaissance pottery) and porcelain. The Kupferstichkabinett (Tu-F 10-18, Sa-Su 11-18, €8/4) at Matthäikirchplatz 8 has an extensive collection of historic drawings and prints, some of which can be viewed by arrangement, and two-hour public tours of exhibitions (€8) must be booked through the SMB website (see above). A Kulturforum combination ticket (€16/8) is available. Take U2, S1, S2 or S25 to Potsdamer Platz and walk 700m west or take buses M48 or M85 to Kulturforum.

Also closed are the Ethnologisches Museum and Museum für Asiatische Kunst at Dahlem in preparation for their move to Humboldt Forum. Various featured items are on temporary display at the Museumsinsel museums (see above). Museum Europäischer Kulturen (Tu-F 10-17, Sa-Su 11-18, €8/4) remains at Arnimallee 25 in Dahlem, exploring and depicting cultural contacts and affinities in Europe. Take U3 to Dahlem-Dorf, or bus M11 or X83 to U-Dahlem-Dorf.

Other museums

The Deutsches Historisches Museum (M-Su 10-18, €8/4 for all collections, visitors under 18 free) in the Zeughaus and adjacent Ausstellungshalle at the east end of Unter den Linden has the standing historical collection plus periodic special exhibitions. It is important also to view the dying warrior sculptures of Andreas Schlüter in the courtyard window arches. Take bus 100 or 200 to Staatsoper or the U-Bahn or S-Bahn to Friedrichstraße.

Newer museums, some privately operated, concentrate on Berlin’s 20th century history and culture and offer an adventure in contrasts with the established state museums.

The Story of Berlin museum at Kurfürstendamm 207, including an attached refuge bunker against atomic attack, was in early 2019 closed for rebuilding. But the Berlin Story Museum (M-Su 10-19, €6/4.50 with audioguide), at Schönebergerstraße 23A with a different bunker, presents the city’s 800-year history alongside a standing exhibition examining the rise of Hitler (€12/6 with audioguide). Take S1, S2 or S25 or buses M29 or M41 to Anhalter Bahnhof. It is expected that Mitte Museum Berlin, the regional museum for central Berlin at Pankstraße 47 in Gesundbrunnen, will be able to reopen by mid-2019 after restoration and reorganisation works.

The popular DDR Museum (Su-F 10-20, Sa 10-22, €9.80/6), facing the river Spree at Karl-Liebknecht-Straße 1, is a hands-on experience in a small, busy museum of life in the East German socialist state with exhibits and artefacts from the period down to room settings. At times a little fun is made of the subject and the coverage can seem superficial, but a jail cell interior shows a harder edge.

Stasimuseum Berlin (M-F 10-18, Sa-Su 11-18, €8/6/3) at Ruschestraße 103 exhibits the machinery and environment of the former communist security ministry and its secret police in its former administration building, Haus 1. The three floors show how the ministry was formed and operated until citizens overran it in 1990 to stop most of its secret files being destroyed. Audioguides (€2) are available to background the displays but there are also public guided tours in English (Th-M 15.00). Take U5 to Magdalenenstraße.

The Checkpoint Charlie museum complex Mauermuseum – Museum am Checkpoint Charlie (M-Su 9-22, €14.50/9.50, visitors 7-18 €7.50, children under 6 free) at Friedrichstraße 43 is the story of the Berlin Wall at the site of the chief US sector and border crossing from 1945 to 1961. It shows the stories of escape, division and frustration and occasional triumphs. Take U2 to Stadtmitte or U6 to Kochstraße.

Explaining coercive power is the mission of the free museum known as Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors, M-Su 10-20) is near Checkpoint Charlie at Niederkirchnerstraße 8, a site where the SS and state police planned many operations during the Third Reich and which afterwards lay in the Berlin Wall area. It examines the workings of the Nazi terror apparatus and its agencies and, step by step, the unfolding of Nazi state security. The outside area is open until dusk. A documentation centre (M-F 10-17) is included and there are one-hour tours (Su 15.30) in English (sign up at the information desk at least 30 minutes in advance). Take U6 to Kochstraße or S7, S25 or U2 to Potsdamer Platz.

The Jewish Museum Berlin (Jüdisches Museum Berlin, M-Su 10-20, €8/3, families €14, children under 6 free) in and around the Postmodern complex at Lindenstraße 9-14 has a permanent exhibition tracing two millennia of German-Jewish relations as well as special exhibits. Audio guides (€3) are available in English. Take bus 248 to Jüdisches Museum or U6 to Kochstraße.

In a city known as the international centre of espionage, it was natural to establish Deutsches Spionagemuseum (M-Su 10-20, €12/8, families €35) to focus on the work of spies and their Berlin Cold War history. The museum, at Leipziger Platz 9, includes an interactive spy map and details intelligence operations, electronic monitoring, the story of spy swaps on the famous bridge Glienicke Brücke near Potsdam, and what work goes on today, even in foreign embassies. Tours are an additional €8/5 per person.

The Berlin city website offers a sometimes outdated listing of selected museums at but there is a summary with links at the VisitBerlin site There is also a sample at Many other Berlin museums have their own websites.

Museum and tourist pass options

The importance and public accessibility of Berlin museums have been institutionalised and there are several types of access tickets for multiple museums. Berlin, like many cities, offers a card specifically covering museum entry. A three-day Museum Pass Berlin (€29/14.50) covers more than 30 museums, including special exhibitions in key Museumsinsel museums. The list is available at the VisitBerlin website. The days of use must be consecutive, and many museums close Monday, but it is easy to squeeze value out of this deal. Thursday is a good day to exploit a museum pass. Museumsinsel and most Kulturforum museums are open to 20.00 on Thursdays and this is true of many Berlin museums. The Jüdisches Museum Berlin is open to 20.00 daily. For museum buffs prepared to concentrate their visits this way, the pass could be quite valuable given admission costs. Special exhibitions might incur an added charge. A Museumsinsel pass, at €18/9 for a booked day, allows access to all the famous central museums.

The Berlin Welcome Card covers all transport plus discounts up to 50% at attractions and covers children travelling with card-holding adults – up to three aged 6-14 – but the value component could lie in transport only as the main museums admit visitors 18 and under free. Museumsinsel and other key Berlin museums are in this category. The Welcome Card adult Museumsinsel option for inner Berlin includes full adult admission to those museums for 72 hours at €46. Discounts at a range of other museums are included in Welcome Cards for two to six days at costs from €20 to €43. For access to only the SMB museums over a longer period, buy the annual membership card at €25.
