As ancient Egypt is a great interest of mine, I was a bit disappointed by their collection. The only impressive parts are the bust of Nefertiti and the papyrus scrolls but the rest of the collection is very limited. Also the order of the rooms isn't really good. It's a bit chaotic. My expectation were high but the museum didn't... More

If you don't have much time but you have a museum pass you can nip in to museums and have a look at their star exhibits. Nefertiti does not disappoint. She is breathtaking, a real portrait of a real person from more than 3000 years ago. Beautifully exhibited in her own vaulted space which was not overcrowded. The rest of... More

The museum itself was attractive and interesting. Unfortunately staff was focusing on whether we have too large bags or not. Unfriendly start spoiled almost everything. I'm not museum-orientated but I feeled sorry for my family who truly wanted to visit this nice museum.

High expectations well and truly met - the exhibits were outstanding and organised/presented incredibly. The size of the museum is vast (spread over four floors) so make sure you allocate enough time for this especially is visiting other museums on the same day. Would recommend getting the day pass to see at least a few while on the island -... More

I didn't find the exhibits of any particular interest and the staff were unfriendly and rude. I was very disappointed with it altogether. The entrance fee of €12 is a rip off, avoid like the plague.

This museum is very large and extensive. Museum island is definitely a multi-day endeavor. Nefertiti was absolutely beautiful. However, if you don't like ancient history or ancient Egypt, this might be boring for you. The building itself is also very pretty, especially the detail on the inside of the ceilings.

The Neues Museum in Berlin is big and well organised museum. Its location is near other museums on a small island in Berlin. The collections are very interesting if you like Ancient Egypt history. You can spend half of day there and the time will be very well spent. The most famous exhibit is the coloured model bust of Queen... More

We were admiring not only the collection of the museum, but the building itself! It's newly renovated and looks great!

The Neues (“New”) Museum in Berlin is outstanding. At the time of my visit in May 2013, the must-see exhibit was that of Tell el-Armana, the Egyptian city established by the Pharaoh Akhenaten. This was a beautiful exhibit which culminates in the lighted display of the famous bust of the Pharaoh’s wife, Queen Nefertiti. There is much to see throughout... More
