Museums

Berliner museums house cultural masterpieces of world heritage, such as the Pergamon Altar or the bust of Nefertiti. They also present highlights of the visual arts, or impart major history and minor histories. Have a look at our exhibition overview 2015/2016 and our monthly exhibition overview (December) zu finden.

The Museum Pass Berlin gives you free entry for 50 museums for three consecutive days. You can get it directly at the museums, online or in our Berlin Tourist Infos.

Please note the special opening hours of Berlin's Museums and Memorials during Christmas and New Year.
