Pros: Good collection of Greek and Roman artefacts; informative and free audio guide. Cons: No "must-see" pieces in the collection; even for a history fan, it gets abit repetitive/ boring after awhile.

€10 to see a lot of marble statues. I expected more for the price. 40 minutes and you're done. The building itself it beautiful and the location is amazing.

This collection is found in the Altes Museum on Museum Island. Many high quality antiquities from Greek and Roman times are housed here even if there is nothing as in-your-face as Nefertiti's bust. If I could visit just two museums in Berlin, this would be...More

oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
