Not worth the admission unless you really want to see Egyptian artifacts. Time machine on third floor interesting. Docents seem more like guards.

We did not research this museum as we were going to the pergamon museum but due to a 3 hour wait we went into the Nues Museum which has a lot of Egyptian historical items. We enjoyed this museum and it took four hours to see everything and it was great value for money, we made the error of not... More

I found the explanations to be quite in depth and overwhelming, and found myself getting a little bit bored with the endless displays of artefacts as I don't really know a lot about Ancient History. Nefertiti's bust is worth the walk around the museum, I just wish the other areas grabbed my attention as much as she did.

It might be very interesting for lovers of Egyptian and prehistoric art but to be honest it becomes pretty boring quite soon for everyone else, especially if already tired by the pergamon museum. This said, Nefertiti's bust and the golden hat are sublime and breathtaking, they simply cannot be missed if you visit the museum Island.

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.
