This museum rivals the Pergamon Museum. There are four floors of fabulous displays including some awe inspiring Egyptian displays, wonderful sculptures, and of course the beautiful Nefertiti. You can't photograph Nefertiti- the staff are very watchful. However there plenty of souvenirs available including books, postcards, bookmarks, magnets, computer mouse mat etc. There's also a beautiful cafe with great coffee and... More

What an amazing museum, almost all dedicated to Egyptian history, with of course Nefertiti. It is a shame though that you can not take any photo, even without the flash as it is allowed in the rest of the museum. And the 2 guides (or guards) around will come at you even if you check a text message on your... More

Lovely museum, especially the Egyptian collection. Such a shame that our visit was spoiled by a rude and hostile female cashier who refused to issue student tickets for my 2 children. After complaining to management, we were grudgingly sold tickets by her, despite her continued protestation to the manager and swearing at us under her breath (yes, some middle aged... More

We were really surprised by how much we enjoyed the Neues Museum. We only had the ticket because we'd bought a Museuminsel day ticket, and thought we'd just check it out because we'd already paid for it. The building itself was beautiful with lots of stunning features. The museum itself had a lot of great exhibitions, and a lot on... More

A beautiful place with exquisite displays - unfortunately, the ticket office clerk was irritable and hostile, thus a poor welcome - shame she sabotaged the marvellous impression made by the rest of her colleagues at the museum.

After many times in berlin, we finally managed to visit this very nice museum; the collection & how it is displayed is really impressive... the combination of old & new elements in the architecture of the building work really well! Nefertete is so beautiful...

Hard to believe that this great building was a pile of stone in dereliction in 1999 it has certainly risen to an interesting museum. Especially liked the gold Berlin hat which I had never heard of before and is particularly German and the Nefertiti head which is very elegant. Museums quite often give me cultural overload and I begin to... More

The highlights are well worth the trip. The Berlin hat is wonderful - a real wizards hat. Parts of the museum are quite sparse but the Egyptian section is very worthwhile.

Overall I really enjoyed my visit to the Neues museum in Berlin. I entered using my Berlin museum pass which I would highly recommend travellers obtain if they are going to see a few different museums, you'll save money. We spent about 4 hours looking through the collections but you could easily spend a couple of days here if you... More

Very well laid out museum - excellent documentation - give yourself a few hours to browse and learn. I saw Nefertiti which was the reason I went there. Great experience - well worth a visit.
