Have the grandkids see so much art and history from the Middle East, when they come from rural Vermont, is so important. The Ishtar gate always brings me to tears and the Islamic art always amazes me.

It is being renovated and although it seems to me they shouldn’t charge for what’s left to see. Small exhibit Id skip until they are done renovating it

Wonderful and worth every penny. Loved the Ishtar Gate and the Miletus Gate, as well as all the Assyrian material, especially on Ashanasapal II. Useful lockers too.

12euro entry is pretty good, we werent that interested in it but still spent well over an hour learning more about it all, however I can imagine that for someone who is really fascinated by it all it would be crazy

There were a few impressive exhibits - the Ishtar Gate reconstruction, for instance. But the cost of entrance was expensive, especially when half of the museum was closed for renovation.
