The original Pergamon Museum (Pergamonmuseum in German) was built in 1910 to house the rebuilt Pergamon Altar, which had been excavated by German archaeologist Karl Humann, and was moved from its original home in present-day Turkey to Germany in the late 19th century. The museum is now also home to exhibits from the Collection of Classical Antiquities, the Museum of the Ancient Near East, and the Museum of Islamic Art, with many monumental exhibits which will wow visitors. Lines can get long, so book ahead of your visit to skip the ticket lines.

If you’re planning to see several of Berlin’s excellent museums, consider investing in a Museum Pass. It’ll save you money, but be aware that you don’t get to skip the line at the Pergamon Museum unless you book a single ticket with a fixed time slot.

Consider whether you can save this museum for a future trip - the Pergamon Altar, one of the major attractions inside, is currently closed for renovations for the foreseeable future, as is the cafe, so you might want to visit one of the other recently renovated museums instead. Please check the current status before your visit.
The crowd inside the Pergamon Museum just grows as the day goes on. Be there first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds.
The audio guide is included in the price of the ticket! The guide includes the highlights tour so that you can learn more about the museum’s most important exhibits.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s there to see in the Pergamon Museum?

The Pergamon Museum is home to pieces from 3 of the Berlin State Museums’ collections: the Collection of Classical Antiquities (Antikensammlung), the Museum of the Ancient Near East (Vorderasiatisches Museum), and the Museum of Islamic Art (Museum für Islamische Kunst). The museum is renowned for the monumental architecture which has been rebuilt inside its halls, especially the Pergamon Altar (currently being renovated), the Ishtar Gate from Babylon, and the Market Gate of Miletus. Read more.

Why is it called the Pergamon Museum?

It’s named the Pergamon Museum after one of the museum’s most impressive exhibits, the monumental Pergamon Altar. 35.64 m (116 ft) wide and 33.4 m (109 ft) deep, the massive structure was taken from the ancient Greek city of Pergamon (in present-day Turkey), before being rebuilt and displayed in the purpose-built museum on the Museum Island in Berlin. It has two friezes, one of which tells the story of the battle of the Olympian gods against the giants (the Gigantomachy), and one of which depicts the life of Telephus, the legendary son of Herakles. The Pergamon Altar was closed for renovation in 2014 and is due to be reopened in 2027. Due to the vibrations from the renovations, some of the more delicate exhibits have also been removed. Read more.

Is the museum interesting to children?

It really depends on the child and their interests. There are several exhibits which might be interesting to children as long as accompanying adults can explain the history of the object to them, but the information boards around the museum and the audio guide aren’t designed with children as their target audience. That being said, a child who is really interested in the ancient Greeks or Romans might find a great deal to interest them in the museum, even without child-oriented materials! Read more.

How long should I expect to spend in the museum?

You can easily walk through the museum and see the most famous and monumental exhibits within 1 to 2 hours. If you’re using the audio guide or you enjoy lingering over interesting pieces then your visit will probably take closer to 3 or 4 hours. Read more.
