***IMPORTANT-PLEASE READ HERE FOR EXACT MEETING POINT*** Meet on the bottom of the steps to the "James Simon Galerie" on Museum Island That is on street level - at the foot of the steps leading up to the James-Simon-Gallery

10:00 AM
This activity will end right where it started.
Your cultural experience begins when you greet your guide beneath the colonnade on the corner of Am Lustgarten and Bode Strasse. As you approach the entrance of the New Museum (Neues Museum), your guide provides an overview of the devastating WWI bombing campaign that almost completely destroyed the UNESCO-listed Museumsinsel (Museum Island).

Skip-the-line passes to both museums mean you’ll bypass long lines of tourists waiting to behold the vast collections of the Neues Museum (New Museum) and the Pergamon Museum (Pergamonmuseum).

Kick off proceedings with a tour of the Pergamon Museum (Pergamonmuseum), home to the opulent Collection of Classical antiques, the Middle Eastern Museum, and the Museum of Islamic Art. Feast your eyes on the famous Ishtar Gate, the Market Gate of Miletus, and the lovely tiles of the Processional Way, whose history and social context are explained by your guide.

On a guided walk, you'll see, too, the Egyptian and prehistoric treasures of the Neues Museum (New Museum), whose recent renovation has restored the 1859 structure to its former glory: highlights include the priceless Bust of Nefertiti and portraits of kings that demonstrate the progression of sculpture throughout history. 

Following your museum tour, you’ll receive a ticket that allows entry to all five of Museumsinsel’s (Museum Island’s) exhibitions spaces. Admire works from the eras of Classicism, Romanticism, and Impressionism in the Old National Gallery (Alte Nationalgalerie); see the Pantheon-inspired rotunda in the Altes Museum; and marvel at Byzantine sculptures in the Bode Museum.

Museum Island Tour Guide of exceptional quality
Cynthia_B
, Jun 2022
Jamie is a knowledgeable, friendly and skilled guide. He helped us tour the important rooms of the Pergamon and Neues Museums, so that our 3 hours were effectively used. He has a PhD in Archeological studies so we were treated to his wealth of knowledge about many of the ancient cultures of Europe and the Middle East. He is witty, made the subjects interesting and showed us pictures on his IPAD to contrast and enliven different periods of the structures and their surroundings we viewed in the museum (Babylonian Gate etc) He herded our group with exceptional skill and patience. I would definitely return for any tour that Jamie led!

Very good experience! The tour was amazing, the tour guide was good at his job, informative and fun to listen to. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has a thing for ancient history! Tipp: The Pergamon Museum is open only 20% due to major renovations (80%), but the tour still is worth the money because you also visit the New Museum. The Pergamon Museum will be in renovations untill 2025 year. Wish you all good time in Berlin!

Guided tour of Pergamon and Neues Museum's a must
Toru_T
, Jan 2020
Our (English-language) guide was a very knowledgeable Irishman who studies ancient history. 1.5 hours each in the Pergamon and Neues museums to ensure not to miss the most important displays as well as get a real understanding of things. Due to the season, neither museum was crowded (so the "skip-the-line" wasn't critical) but the level of understanding was much more enhanced. Highly recommended!!

Our guide Gabriela was knowledgeable and extremely professional. She understood the key interests of group members, eagerly answered all questions and, what is most important -was keeping dialogue on many related subjects. Really worth having this tour.

We had a great tour. Mike knew so much about everything and shared the greatest stories. I loved all of his personal photos of buildings before reconstruction. i appreciate all the work that has been done to restore the buildings and the treasures. I recommend Mike as your guide for any tour he does. You will be rewarded. It is cognitive overload!!!!

Museum Highlights in Berlin

, Aug 2019
The guided portion of the tour is short, with an emphasis on the two larger museums and their collections. We had a great tour guide (Jamie) and he has a lot of insight on the artifacts in the two museums. After the guided portion of the tour, we visited the Pergamon Panorama which is a relatively new exhibit and it was awesome. We had to pay a little as the entrance fee was not included in the tour package, but we did get a small discount since we had the tour package. We also visited the Altes Museum which was also great. We ran out of energy about 4 pm and could not make it to the remaining museums on package. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the day. It is worth the time and cost.

Pergamon/Neues Museum Guided Tour Berlin
Peter_C
, Jul 2019
Excellent 3 hour tour of key points of interest in Pergamon & Neues Museums in Berlin's Museum Island (you also get an all day pass to all 5 museums for the price of the tour - we subsequently toured the Bode museum as well in the afternoon). Thomas, our guide (archaeology student from US) was excellent - he was knowledgeable and had some very good stories about various exhibits at both museums (which cover an eclectic range of time periods & civilizations, e.g. ranging from Assyrian to Egyptian to pre-historic German)

It was amazing. Tarik our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. He led us straight into the Pergamon and Neus Museums without the hassle and long line for tickets. He was very helpful, guided us to the most important highlights with full explanation. The highlight of our visit was Queen Nefertiti's Head.The Museum Pass itself allowed us free and skip the line entry to the rest of the Museums on Museum Island. This is much better than purchasing the Museum Pass alone. We only had 1 day in Berlin and having a guide enabled us to see all the important stuff without wasting time going around in circles by ourselves. I highly recommend this tour and highly recommend Tarik. He is so professional. Thankyou.
