As an extension to the classical Berlin WelcomeCard variants, there is also the Berlin WelcomeCard Museum Island for art and culture enthusiasts. In addition to the services of the Berlin WelcomeCard 72h Berlin AB or ABC also gives you free entry to the museums of the Museum Island (special exhibitions are excluded). For three consecutive days, the holders of the Berlin WelcomeCard Museum Island can visit for free the five famous museums (Ancient National Gallery, Ancient Museum, Bodemuseum, New Museum and Pergamon Museum) of the Berlin Museum Island. 

Please note the opening hours oft the Berlin Museum Island: On Mondays, the National Museums in Berlin are closed. 

The Berlin Museum Island

The Museum Island in Berlin is the northern tip of the Spree Island - and it is also a magnificent work of art itself, involving world-renowned museums gathered in an extraordinary ensemble. The many outstanding exhibits include the Nefertiti and the Pergamon frieze.
Since 1999, the museum complex in the city centre of Berlin has been the only architectural and cultural ensemble that is considered part of UNESCO World Heritage.

Pergamonmuseum: The most visited museum in Berlin. Permanent exhibits in the museum such as the Pergamon frieze and the Market Gate of Miletus have already been restored.

Bode-Museum: The museum houses an extensive collection of sculptures and treasures of the Museum of Byzantine Art and the Numismatic Collection.

Neues Museum: Since reopening in 2009, the Egyptian Museum and the Museum of Prehistory and Early History have once again found a place to display their treasures in the museum. The showpiece of the New Museum is the bust of Nefertiti.

Alte Nationalgalerie: Built between 1867 and 1876 the museum Alte Nationalgalerie features works of Classicism, Romanticism, the Biedermeier era, Impressionism and early Modernism.

Altes Museum: Designed by the architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel, it was thus the first public museum in Prussia. The museum's permanent exhibition entitled “New Antiquity in the Old Museum" (collection of classical antiquities and gold treasury) presents Greek and Roman art and sculptures.

Please note:

Since 2013, the Pergamonmuseum has been undergoing staggered renovation work, devised by the Ungers architectural practice, as part of the Master Plan Museumsinsel. During the current stage of renovations, the hall containing the Pergamon Altar closed in  2014 and will remain closed to the public until re-opening in 2024.

Attention: Please book a free time slot ticket for your visit of the museums on the museum island. No time slot ticket is required for Bode-Museum and Altes Museum.
