The whole museum is great and there's lots of interest to see, but in the end, it is Nefertiti that makes the whole visit. You are allowed to take pictures in the museum... Everywhere except the Nefertiti exhibit, which is really too bad.

As an Egyptian history nerd I had to see the bust of Nefertiti with my own eyes - it was one of my reasons for visiting Berlin. I was not disapponted. No Mona Lisa let down here. She is amazing. Likewise the Schliemann Troy treasure - the famous headdress and necklace are in the Neues. The museum overall is fantastic... More

Bought pass to see two museums (pass will get you into five). We were pressed for time but did get to see the bust and bought souvenirs in the shops. You probably have seen it on tv or in pictures but it is breathtaking in person. We've seen lots of museums with Egyptian artifacts, still enthralled by this.

This museum is worth the price of admission just to see the bust of Nefertiti, which is in amazing condition. We bought a museum island ticket which was a good deal. Wonderful collection.

If you're interested in Egyptology then this is a worthwhile visit. There is so much there and the pieces are intact and beautiful presented. The building is stunning and a treat to walk round in itself. My only criticism is the lack if information of the age of the peices and where they were taken from. Very frustrating.

Very good collection from all over the world,including Cyprus. Of course you cannot leave without seeing Nefertiti bust. Very good Egyptian collection,for the ones that like me love this civilization. You can also use the Berlin welcome card and get discount on the tickets. Students, from all the European union, also have discount. Must go

Fairly good collection of Egyptian artifacts. Not as crowded as Pergamon museum. Staff was friendly, and there's lockers for your coat and bags.

If you are interesting about Egyptian history, this is a must place visit.It is located in Museum island, and if you get Museum pass, this museum is also included.Two hours will be enough to cover all the places, collect a map and audio guide from entrance and follow the map so you can cover every thing in 2-3 hours time.

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.
