Classical treasures in Berlin's most frequently visited museum
Berlin's most frequently visited museum has an incredible collection of exquisite classical treasures such as the striking reconstructions of archaeological buildings – the Pergamon Altar of Zeus, Roman market gate of Milet and Ishtar Gate with the Processional Way of Babylon and the Mshatta façade.
The impressive building - one of five on Berlin's Museum Island - houses no fewer than three museums: the Collection of Classical Antiquities occupying the architectural halls and sculpture wing, the Middle Eastern Museum and the Museum of Islamic Art.
Since 2013, the Pergamonmuseum has been undergoing staggered renovation work, devised by the Ungers architectural practice, as part of the Master Plan Museumsinsel. During the current stage of renovations, the hall containing the Pergamon Altar will close at the end of September 2014 and will remain closed to the public for five years, due for reopening in 2019. The South Wing of the Pergamonmuseum, featuring the Market Gate of Miletus, the Ishtar Gate and Processional Way from Babylon, and the Museum of Islamic Art, remains unaffected and will be open to the public during this time. Attention: Longer waiting hours. visitBerlin highly recommends time slot tickets.
Please note: For technical reasons, the lift in the Pergamonmuseum is currently out of use. Wheelchair access in the museum is limited! We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
