    Ancient Greece and Rome Empire collection. Well maintained stuff and a lot of knowledge to be known. If you are going to spend whole day on the Museum Island it's better to take one ticket for 18eur

    A good but not great collection of Greek, Etruscan and Roman antiquities. If you're into this part of history, this is the best museum to visit, although not as impressive as Pergamon or Neues.

    Wunderbare austellung, sehr interessant. umgang mit besuchern aber oft nervig: häufige ticketkontrollen, verbot von taschen, wenig sitzmöglichkeiten. Das pergamon Museum wirkt da freundlicher.

    O primeiro edifício a ser completado na Museumsinsel em 1830, o Altes Museum parece um templo grego. Contém a Coleção de Antiguidades Clássicas.
