Buy Tickets for Museumsinsel & Museums in Berlin

Of all the many museums in Berlin, it is Museum Island (Museumsinsel in German) to which most visitors are drawn. From the delicate bust of the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, to the extraordinary reconstruction of the Ishtar Gate from ancient Babylon. From a 6th century mosaic from Ravenna to French Impressionist paintings. The diverse collections exhibited on Museumsinsel are of international significance. Whether you want to visit only one or two, or explore as many museums as you can on Museum Island and beyond, there are a number of ticketing choices available. From single entry tickets to museum and city passes. Having tested most of them, I weigh up your options.
