You cant miss the Neues Museum on Museum island, where you will have the pleasure to admire the masterpiece of the egyptian collection given by Mr James Simon to the Museum : the stunning bust of Nefertiti (that you are not allowed to take a photo of) Of course you have thousands of beautiful other pieces from over 1000's of...

If there is one collection of Egyptian Art you must see it is this one. I counted up to at least 50 amazing masterpieces of quality and importance that are simply staggering. Not even the Cairo Museum holds a candle to this collection because the displays are so carefully thought out and beautiful, while in Cairo you have such poor... More

If you can find your way to Museum Island and the Pergamon Museum, look to your right side and see the kiosk selling tickets to the Neues Museum. This institution is not exactly new, and history is here to prove it. Part of the building’s walls were destroyed and the central stairway and its frescos were burned in November 1943.... More

Between the architecture of the building, per and post the wars, the Egyptian displays, and with historical items from over 1000's of years, you should definitely plan on visiting and spending some time here.

This museum was one of our favourites in Berlin. It is huge with a wide range of Egyptian artefacts including Nefertiti's head. There are fact sheets dotted about with copies in English which was surprising too find! We bought the 3 day museum pass, which got us into all the museums we were planning to visit and came with an... More

A perfect compliment to the Pergamon and right next door. Besides the famous high spots like the bust of Nefertiti, the Neues features a stunning array of really beautiful treasures from all over the world, well presented and easy to tour. No complaints whatsoever except the chronic lack of useful signage on Museum Island.

I have been here several times and it is still one of my favorite museums. The architecture blends pre-and post WWII styles. It is worth a trip just to see the interplay of various architectural styles. The exhibit houses some true treasures and it is exceptionally well curated. Definitely worth a trip.

Don't get so overtired by the Pergamon that you miss this marvelous museum next door. It's one of the best I've ever visited, not just for the wonderful exhibits (yes, Nefertiti's head really is as stunning as everyone says) but for the fantastic way the galleries and halls have been designed to visually showcase the collections. Very striking, very clever,... More

Picturesque must see. Worth the price of entry. Beware of the different discount.....not accepted is the Berlin Welcome Card. Don't forget your camera, you'll be snapping many photos around this area.

First choice for me and totally did not disappoint. Nefertiti's bust is a must-see in Berlin! The rest of the exhibition also excellent. Little bit unhappy about the policy that you can photograph anywhere else but not in the room where Nefertiti's bust is...
