Neues Museum, Berlin

4.4
#3 of 191 in Museums in Berlin
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.

  • It's a marvelous museum! The atmosphere produced by the mix between the modern and the historical settings is absolutely amazing! The walls, the ceilings, the columns are themselves masterpieces and they made a perfect frame for the antiques shown there!
  • It was insightful while visiting such a historic place. One must visit while being on tour to Berlin. I had a chance to grab a student price ticket for all the five museums. It was really wonderful. Highly recommended
  • Amazing museum for everyone. The misery of the Egypt and mix of cultures dives into the infinite space of emotions and understanding the nature of those times. Yo will find a lot of artifacts you have seen at school at books. Nefertiti head is wonderful. The part of the museum is not renovated, that allows you to understand how people are struggling to preserve the history amd the culture.
  • Great museum! Huge collection of primarily ancient Egyptian artifacts, including the iconic bust of Nefertiti, which is heavily monitored by security. The museum itself is architecturally interesting— many traces of damage from severe shelling during WWII. Def worth a couple hours if you’re interested in Egyptology.
  • Had a great but to short experience here. There is more than a day worth of information available, for which everyone is able to pick his or her amount of info. The audio guides are highly recommendable as they provide additional highlights and always provide another perspective into the matter. Last but not least: the sight of Nefertiti is breath taking, the replicas cannot be compared with the original. Fortunately there is a bronze replica in the same room, that you can touch, which makes the whole experience more sensible and available to visually impaired.
