Admission: €8 for adults (€4 for students with valid ID). However, if you’re really on a budget, the museum is free for all visitors after 18:00 on Thursday nights.
Get There: The Pergamon Museum can be reached using the S-Bahn, taking routes S3, S5, S7, or S75 and exiting at Hackescher Markt, or via S1, S2, S3, S5, S7, or S75, from Friedreichstraße. Visitors can also take the U-Bahn – U2 – and exit at either Märkisches Museum or Stadmitte Station.
The new, larger Pergamon Museum was conceived as a “Dreiflügelanlage”. Today, it accommodates three separate museums: the Antikensammlung (Collection of Classical Antiquities), occupying the architectural halls and the sculpture wing, the Vorderasiatisches Museum (Museum of the Ancient Near East) and the Museum für Islamische Kunst (Museum of Islamic Art). The monumental reconstruction of archaeological building ensembles – such as the Pergamon Altar, the Market Gate of Miletus and the Ishtar Gate including the Processional Way of Babylon and the Mshatta Façade – has made the Pergamon museum world-famous.
