What to expect
Your cultural experience begins when you greet your guide beneath the colonnade on the corner of Am Lustgarten and Bode Strasse. As you approach the entrance of the New Museum (Neues Museum), your guide provides an overview of the devastating WWI bombing campaign that almost completely destroyed the UNESCO-listed Museumsinsel (Museum Island). Skip-the-line passes to both museums mean you’ll bypass long lines of tourists waiting to behold the vast collections of the Neues Museum (New Museum) and the Pergamon Museum (Pergamonmuseum). Kick off proceedings with a tour of the Pergamon Museum (Pergamonmuseum), home to the opulent Collection of Classical antiques, the Middle Eastern Museum, and the Museum of Islamic Art. Feast your eyes on the famous Ishtar Gate, the Market Gate of Miletus, and the lovely tiles of the Processional Way, whose history and social context are explained by your guide. On a guided walk, you'll see, too, the Egyptian and prehistoric treasures of the Neues Museum (New Museum), whose recent renovation has restored the 1859 structure to its former glory: highlights include the priceless Bust of Nefertiti and portraits of kings that demonstrate the progression of sculpture throughout history.  Following your museum tour, you’ll receive a ticket that allows entry to all five of Museumsinsel’s (Museum Island’s) exhibitions spaces. Admire works from the eras of Classicism, Romanticism, and Impressionism in the Old National Gallery (Alte Nationalgalerie); see the Pantheon-inspired rotunda in the Altes Museum; and marvel at Byzantine sculptures in the Bode Museum.

Museum Island Pergamon Guided Tour with Ariel
There isn’t a better way to visit museum island than with an expert guide. Our guide from insider tours, Ariel, was highly informed, made good jokes to keep it entertaining and really made ancient history come to life. Having a guide makes all the difference; pointing out the main features of ancient history in chronological order, you learn the salient features without being overwhelmed by the size and all the reading in the museum. Thank you for a once in a life time experience Ariel !

A Brilliant Experience
Dec. 2019 • Solo
Being shown around the museums' jaw-dropping collections by the one and only Jamie, a brilliant fountainhead of knowlege and insight, was a splendid hightlight in getting more and more acquainted with Berlin as a place of reflection and contemplation of history. Jamie's compelling sense of structure in conveying information, commanding and affable delivery, and deep research and personal experience come together to make an experience of understanding, insight, and awe.
If you are a fan of history, if you appreciate wonderful art, and want to get an enhanced, layered trip into the unique wealth and depth of Berlin's Pergamon and Neues Museum, do yourself a favor and take this tour.
Perk: you get to use the all-day museum pass to all museums at the Museum Island, great value.

Pre-booked ticket online for Museums Tour by Insider Tour the day before. Greeted by our tour guide by the name of John at our designated meeting point near the museums. A group of five visited the Pergamon & New Museums. John was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable & informative with a wonderful sense of humor. Love skipping long queues. I highly recommend this tour. Thank you John.

Great review of the Pergamon and New Museums
Oct. 2019
Excellent 3 hour tour with Gabriela, an Argentinian who lives in Berlin. (Her English is perfect.) A very enjoyable tour loaded with information about the Pergamon and New Museum exhibits. Very well organized and highly recommended.

The tour also includes a Museum Island Day Pass which allows you to visit these and other museums for the rest of the day.

Great way to see both museums!
Jun. 2019
We had an excellent tour guide who was very knowledgeable. Both museums were worth seeing. We saw how long the Pergamon museum was so we were glad we chose the tour. The Ishtar Gate is incredible and the guide did an excellent job describing the history of the gate, how it was packed for travel, and how you could tell what parts were original and what parts were reconstructed. Very impressive. We saw the Neus Museum next and the guide did a great job talking about the sarcophagi through the ages and how to decipher what the Egyptian statues. Queen Nefertiti's bust is stunning. Seeing it in person truly was an experience. I strongly recommend seeing both museums and you will see them more quickly and enjoy it more if you buy the tour.
