While visiting the museums island, if you are getting tired of accademic art and museums huge queues, then have a break and go to a little uncrowded museum: the temportary exhibitions of the Germany history museum. 2 more reasons to get there: fewer people, and an interesting building designed by Pei.

My experience, Explo description: 

On 28 May 1695, King Friedrich I of Prussia gave the orders to lay the foundation of the Berlin "Zeughaus", the Arsenal. The Zeughaus is the oldest building located on the Unter den Linden avenue. It is one of the most beautiful buildings of the Baroque period in northern Germany.
By the end of the 19th century, the old Prussian weapons depot became a museum of Prussian history. After World War 1 the Zeughaus was incorporated into the "Prussian Art Collections" as the "Staatliche Zeughaus" or "State Arsenal". The building was then severely damaged during world war 2.
In 1987 the Federal Republic of Germany and the Land of Berlin founded the German Historical Museum.

The museum is now divided in 2 parts : the permanent exhibition (the German history in the Zeughaus), and the temporary exhibitions, located in the "Pei" building (designed by Pei (who also designed the glass pyramid at the Louvre museum in Paris), located behind the Zeughaus, inaugurated in 1998).

Usually, there are 2 temporary exhibitions at the same time in the museum.

Have a look at the Zeughaus of course ! This is the German history museum permanent exhibitions museum.
