Plan to spend several days, perhaps over several visits, to see this unique cultural attraction. The Neues Museum is a must-see for its Egyptian collection, easily one of the most impressive and best displayed of any museum in the world.

We loved it, did the cathedral first, you can walk up to the dome for a great view, and then we visited the Pergamon museum. Loved them both.

Beautiful, impressive buildings and loads of interesting artefacts. We visited the Neue Building and seen the Nefertiti bust and the Golden Hat both worth seeing along with all the other exhibits

The idea behind it is good. Putting a lot of things that people have interest in together. I enjoyed visiting, but wish that there is more to do.

This district surely deserve a visit if you're in Berlin, and why not going in for a visit in a museum?! =)

There is just so much to see and do here. You can spend days sight seeing and taking in the attraction. Really plan to see as much as you can.
