The museum had an interesting range of items on display from different periods through human history. The bust of Nefertiti was well worth seeing. There was a good selection of well preserved swords. One with red garnets inland on the pommel was very interesting. The museum was a warm and peaceful place to spend a few hours out of the... More

12 euros for entry, discount with a travel pass. You are asked to remove coats and leave bags (at no cost) on entry. A lovely building itself, the collection is interesting and well displayed, with English translations. Good cafe and reasonably priced.

Interesting, worth a visit if you're in the area. Some unique exhibits, with signs in multi languages, and free audio guide on entry to the museum. Visit on a multi-museum ticket though. Possibly not enough to engage your interests for a full day, but well worth a trip when combined with other museums on the island.

We went there on a weekday, in November. Hence it wasn't that crowded. Expositions were amazing, loved it. We had the audio guide in English. Some of the pieces did not have the audio guide available, it was in the making. Unfortunately, the curators / workers there didn't speak much of English, so asking them for addition information was a... More

Very impressive museum. The Egyptian collection is outstanding up there with the British museum. Got a ticket for all the museums on the Island . Worth it. Staff are not very pleasant. Tend to be a little aggressive and rude.

The star exhibit even if you do not like Egyptology, is to see the famous bust of Nefertiti. Displayed in her own room. Atmospheric.

I went straight to Queen Nefertiti's bust before seeing the rest of the collection. No photos allowed but seeing her is so worth the visit.

I went to the Neues Museum to see Nefertiti. And it was far more better - in all ways possible - than I ever expected. She was so amazing - it made the experience almost religious. While standing there and walking slowly around her, it was apparent that no picture ever was able to describe her beauty. But in addition... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
