A 40 days trip in Europe

Museum Island

with one comment

Museum Island.

It’s a small island in the heart of the Berlin (yes it is completed surrounded by water and linked only through bridges) and it has 5 awesome museums on the island.

They are the Bodes Museum, Altes Museum, Neues Museum, Pergamon Musuem and the Altes National Gallerie.

I’ve got a Museum pass that granted me unlimited access (woohoo!) for three days (you mentioned that there are 70 plus museums in Berlin and I get access to about 60 of them?) which really means you have to cherry pick the best Museums if you want to see the best of Berlin.

I decided to commit myself to at least seeing the five Museums on the only Museum Island in the world. In doing so, rate the museums. If you’re on a tight schedule in Berlin, you can come to the island and visit the most important one.

But really, everyone knows what the best Museum in Berlin is.

So I’ll start with the least of 5 on Museuminsel.

5.

Altes Museum

“That’s it?”

This museum has like bits of everything, paintings, sculptures etc. But it does not have like 1 thing that makes it a must see. It has the most impressive exterior, its steps and 2 statues that flank the entrance.

Its most interesting exhibit, is its eroticism in ancient times exhibit.

I wonder who was the model for these lamps….
