We really enjoyed the Neues Museum. Nefertiti is just a very small piece of the exhibition, the museum offers a lot to see and to amazed about. There was almost too much of the Egyptian artefacts to see, after a while you just realize you don't have the time to discover everything in detail the museum has to offer. I... More

If you have a couple of hours to spare, it is worth seeing. Not one of the best museums I've been to though. The fact that the staff was extremely unpolite and almost aggresive to many visitors did not help. I saw one young man who obviously not understand German be scolded, and then the staff member went off complaining... More

Everyone came to see the Queen, but there were much more than that. It had golden hats from the Bronze Age, and whole array of Egyptian artifacts.

Excellent museum. Of course, the Nefertiti bust and the golden hat are the main draw here. Be sure you see them. The rest of the museum too is fab. There are so many museums to see in this wonderful city so be picky and sort out what you want to see in each before you go or else you'll end... More

The Neues Museum is one of the big five museums on Berlin's Museum Island. The big draw is the 3000 year-old bust of Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, but this museum has so much more to offer than its most famous artifact. The Egyptian collection, the artifacts from pre-history and the collection from ancient Troy are all must sees. The excellent audio... More

... I was really surprised that we could take pictures everywhere except to the Nefertiti bust... I didn't like that at all, that was clearly for having you buy a postal card or any of the others souvenirs... I loved the museum, the egyptian collection, and I was hipnotised by the bust, I actually went there to se it...

Even though I am in Berlin rather often I have never been to the 'Neues Museum'. I knew that the Egyptian museum has been moved/returned to the 'Neues Museum' and of course seeing Nefertiti is always a wonderful highlight. However, I was even more impressed by the building itself - even though the exhibition is not completed yet and also... More

This is a wonderful museum. I was particularly keen to see the bust of Nefertiti, and it lived up to my expectations. It's in a separate room, so there's nothing to distract from it, and it wasn't too crowded, so it was possible to walk all round and really look at it. So beautiful. There's lots else in this museum... More
