For a rare look at the iconic bust of the Egyptian queen Nefertiti, visit Neues Museum on the city's famous Museum Island. The museum houses vast collections of prehistoric and ancient Egyptian artifacts. The building itself draws both art and architecture enthusiasts with its award-winning use of modern iron construction and original Neoclassical design. Originally built between 1843 and 1855, it was designed by architect Friedrich August Stuler. The museum was closed in 1939 and was heavily damaged during the bombing raids of the city. Architect David Chipperfield spearheaded the post-war rebuilding efforts, and the museum finally reopened in 2009. Skip the long lines by booking your tickets online.

  • This was really very interesting visit. We have spend around 4 hours and would stay longer if we wouldn’t have other arrangements.

  • Probably the most beautiful museum in the city. The building itself is a huge part of the experience with it's award-winning architecture! The exhibits are huge and the audio commentary make for a complete and informative tour. Finally, the amazing Nefertiti bust is just mesmerizing. A must stop!
  • Incredible, just incredible. The building is stunning, the attention to detail on every level is just breathtaking. The displays are beautifully laid out and wondering round this museum is just a delight. Expect your neck to hurt from all the twisting you'll be doing as you try to take in this building from every angle imaginable.
  • Nice exhibition tour broken by a rude woman.I saw a showroom with a beautiful roof and want take a pic.then i heard a woman's scream: don't take picture! which is really scared me.scream and walked up to me even after I told her I didn't see that sign and sorry for that.but they still acted rudely as I didn't understand their words🥲I mean It's normal when watch a good exhibition and don't necessarily pay attention to the sign at the door.Even if you need to remind people many times a day but that's not the reason to be rude to your guests.You also have a thousand ways to remind the other person not to take pictures.As a museum lover for sure I will abide by this rule.but that scream really scares in my mind until today.btw the rest of the staff are really friendly and humorous so i still recommend everyone to go.
  • We went there only for the bust of Nefertiti. It pays off. The best thing to do is to take a Museum island ticket valid for 1 day, 4 museums. It makes sense, as if one visits at least two (although it is doable 4), it is cheaper than paying the ticket for each.
  • It is easy to enjoy Museum. You can walk in Your own speed and spend as much time as You want, in front of exhibition. Museum it self is beautiful.
