Many museums on the island but this is the best. The exhibits are first rate and the museum space and design is as good as it gets. I recommend doing this one first if you're exploring about Museum Island.

Very nice collection of famous Egyptian artifacts. Be aware though that you cannot take pictures of Nefertiti's bust, which is annoying. But otherwise, a very cool museum if you're into Egypt or other ancient artifacts.

If you are interested in ancient near Eastern art, there is no more wonderful place. We went on Christmas Day. Who says that the Germans have no sense of humor? A chocolate Santa was slyly inserted in a display case in the Egyptian area. There was an incident in the Nefertiti room where a visitor leaned against the glass case... More

Very good collection of Egyptian artefacts. Shame you can't take a photo of the Nefertiti bust. Fantastic building too.

The only saving grace for me was the fact that I had purchased Museum 3 day card and I did not care how long I stay here. The best of all of course is to see Nefertiti, and there were Gold Hats as well. What makes me give this place only 2 circles is extremely rude staff. First of all... More

I was amazed but the size and proportions of this museum. Unfortunately it was at the end of my week in Berlin and I admit to be too tired to exploring it. Be prepared for a great journey through time as you visit this extraordinary collection of history and art.

We spent the afternoon here. The layout , lighting, and display of the exhibits was superb. The high-light has to be the the bust of Nefertiti and the Green Man. The building itself is of great interest having been sensitively restored by the British architect David Chipperfield, leaving much of the WW2 bomb damage still evident. We would like to... More

The Neues actually had a really spacious layout. Thought it wasn't very crowded anyway, it had a very good flow. Of course, Nefertiti was the highlight but there were many other really interesting pieces in the collection. Again, this is a state museum and so you can use the yearly pass for it. In fact, the pass is only available... More

One of the museums in the museumsinsel. For me, now that Pergamon Altar in Pergamonmuseum is closed (under renovation) Neues Museum is the most interesting. It has four floors (ground floor and another three floors), mainly consisting of Egyptian exhibits. This museum is the world-renowned bust of Nefertiti, but it also features the Berlin Gold Hat and the Neanderthal from... More
