The best collection of Egypt stuff outside Cairo, a great collection of almost everything connected with the old Egypt. Surprisingly small line to get into the museum, if you're watching more the 1 museum in this place get the pass.

I really enjoyed this museum. It has many great items, most of them from the Egyptian, Greek and Roman times. One of the most exciting items, for me, was an original page from Homers Iliad, which can be seen in a room full of scriptures from those old times. The Bust of Nefertiti, one of the main displays at this... More

We had a museums pass and only went into Neues Museum because queue at Pergamon was too long and this museum had no queue. However, it was a pleasant surprise. Spent an interesting couple of hours there. Bust of Nefertiti and golden hat are both must-see exhibits.

I purchased the 5 museum pass and stopped in the Neuses following a visit to the Pergamonmuseum. Well worth the visit for both myself and my kids. The entrance fee includes free headphones and audio guide which was quite helpful. The Nefertiti bust was the highlight but there definitely was a lot more interesting artifacts to see.

We didn't have long to wait to purchase our timed tickets. We deposited our bags in the free lockers, picked up a map then went straight up to see Nefertiti. There were only two other people in the room. So we were able to have as private as possible moment with her. It took us another two hours to get... More

Nefertite is worth it all. And it is great to see the reconstruction incorporating the remains of the destroyed building. Everything is easy to see, good texts and not more exhibited than you can see without getting confused. But the staff is taking on a very strict behaviour. You can't have your jacket over your arm although all in the... More

I think at least they should put an exemption on Egyptians in their prohibition rule on photos to the bust of Nefertiti. All in all its a really magnificent museum about Egypt.

My favorites were the Mask of Nefertiti and the Gold Hat, but there is so much to see! All of the Egyptian artifacts are great. The line for tickets on the weekend was about an hour.

If you didn't see anything else except Nefertiti's bust, that would be enough but get the 3 day pass and you can see all 5 museums in this area. The artifacts and relics are fascinating. Make sure you check out the bust of Akenhaten found at the same time as the Nefertiti bust.

We went to see the Egyptian exhibits. Magnificent building with very high ceilings and well arranged exhibits on 3 floors. The museum Insel area is undergoing major renovations which spoiled the area a bit.

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.
