The Berliner Museumsinsel is centrally located and can be reached by bus, underground and city train (either go to Friedrichstrasse and take a walk on Unter den Linden, take bus 100, or the S-Bahn to Hakescher Markt). It consists of various museums, which offer current and special exhibits from all over the world. Check a local paper for current events. Do not miss the best of all, the Pergamon Museum with the famous Pergamon Altar. Other museums located on the island are: Altes Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie, & Bodemuseum. Plan about 1 hour for each museum. The nearby Museum fuer Deutsche Geschichte on Unter den Linden is currently closed.
