You need to spend a while here. There is a huge collection, including an amazing Egyptian collection. One afternoon is not really enough time to do it justice,The museum is on ' Museum Island', so you can visit other museums easily

Such a pity that such a wonderful collection is spoilt by staff attitudes. Museums like this, full of first rate ancient art, should uplift the soul. Instead the guards seem to think that they are running a prison - removing a sweater in the over-heated basement triggered a telling off worthy of a nineteenth century school ma'am with a demand...

This museum is definitely one of the very best in the world. Access to the displays is easy and convenient. Especially-recommended are the bust of Nefertiti, the rest of the Egyptian exhibit, the Berlin Gold Hat along with the entire iron-age collection Be aware that there are convenient lockers and a coat-room. You should plan on using these and on... More

My visit to this museum was completely spoiled by the rudest and most aggressive staff I have ever encountered in any museum in Europe. They commented openly on my leather handbag as I decided to carry it with me, they stood hovering around me as I toured the museum with my husband looking at the artefacts with them standing over...

Architecturally this restoration and reconstruction is marvellously achieved, visually stunning, and a magnificent backdrop for a world class collection of fascinating and beautiful art.

It's a great museum but there is no way that you can do and hear everything in only one day! A must if you come to Berlin But i suggest planning a two day visit to get the most out of the museum

The museum of worth it for the Golden Hat and Neferetti alone - stunning pieces of history. I actually preferred this museum to the Pergamon, which is undergoing renovation. There are a lot of displays here so allocate a couple of hours to really take it all in. Highly recommended and if you don't do all of the Museums in... More

I do not know exactly why, but it is fascinating. Go there just to see Nefertiti. On you way you will see a lot of interesting stuff. I am not into marble statues, but the Eduard Müller's Prometeus outside is extreemly good.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
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.
