Top 5 Pergamon Museum exhibits that aren't the Pergamon

The Pergamon Altar itself is, unfortunately, closed for renovation work until 2019. Is Berlin's museum of monuments still worth a visit without its title attraction? Absolutely! Here are five ancient treasures just as likely to amaze!

Ishtar Gate

The royal blue gateway was once used to lead spring festival processions from ancient Babylon. It takes one large room and an entire hallway to do the imposing structure justice!

Lamassu

These large Sphinxes were found in the ancient Assyrian capital of Aššur. The protective deities – lion, eagle, and human hybrids – adorned the palace of King Tukulti-Ninurta I.

Market Gate of Miletus

This former entrance to an ancient Greek agora is truly breathtaking! It was completely devasted by an earthquake in the Middle Ages, but the reconstruction is a must-see!

Aleppo Room

Commissioned by a prosperous Christian living under Ottoman rule, the ornate panels of this 17-century entrance room were created by some of the finest craftsmen of the time!

Mshatta Façade

Walid ibn Yazid reigned the Ummayad caliphate for only a year, never finishing his winter palace. Its façade is now the pride of the Pergamon Museum of Islamic Art. Don't miss it!

What People Are Saying About Pergamon Museum

Great way to save time getting in to the Pergamon

We were traveling with a group of 6 people on a tight schedule, so these skip the line tickets made a lot of sense for us. We were disappointed that the Pergamon Altar was not on display, but the Ishtar Gate was extremely impressive, as were so many of the other artifacts in this museum.

The Pergamon is a startling experience in each room.

There is some thing for everyone and you don't have to be an expert to enjoy the wonders of the ancient world displayed here.

Don't visit it while it's being renovated!

The museum is really breathtaking, but if I hadn't bought the ticket through the Skip the Line, it wouldn't be worth waiting for hours in the line to see only the few areas that are currently open to the public. It took us a little more than an hour to walk it through and we were left with this unfulfilled sense that there were many more things to see. So if you are planning to go to Berlin again, don't go now and wait for the re opening of the full museum. If you are not and you really want to have a glimpse of it, use the Skip the Line! It's an absolute must in all cases!

The queue to get into the museum was 3 hours... we took 2 minutes

Great visit, cost the same as at door fee and we skipped a 3 hour queue - cannot fault in any way. The museum itself is spectacular!

The most impressive museum I have ever been to.

Very impressive museum. The exhibits are huge, I have never seen anything like that. Perhaps, because of the size of the museum, there should be a rest area in the middle of the museum. I could use a short coffee break.
