What people are saying about Altes Museum

Overall rating

4.5
(1,417 reviews)

We walked past a long line of people waiting to buy tickets at the counter and got in immediately. Worth every penny. The museums are world class

Amazing value for money, the Neues Museum is probably the best museum I’ve ever been to in my life. The amount of things on show is insane

It was great, we saw a lot. I thought the children's prices were a bit high. We booked here anyway because it was close to our hotel.

In the alter gallery they made us wait in line, the rest was perfect

The tour was very good. The ferry was top notch. I recommend it.
