This is on par with Davids Samling in Copenhagen one of the best museum experiences I have ever had!!! The building was a bombed out in the second world war and only reconstructed after the fall of the wall. Art Architecture History in a beautiful combination

At the beginning about timing. We have spent over 2 hours in the museum but to be honest it was like scratching a surface. OK, all exhibition included but definitely not all items seen and admired. Neues Museum is kind of paradise for all interested in antiquity: mainly Old and Ptolemaic Egypt but also some other times. A lot of... More

I spent hours here - too much to see it all properly almost and just walked past a lot in the end. You have to take your coat off and put it in the cloakroom - I got told off and sent back as I hadn't left mine there! Also large bags need to be stored there too. I guess... More

Firstly, the lady that sold us the tickets was very rude and shoved the tray with the tickets to me which caused my hand to be trapped. We visited the museum when it was -11 and the staff members insisted we remove our jackets due to security reasons. We took them off and about half an hour later were informed... More

The museum's collection of Egyptian artifacts is quite literally amazing. If you have any interest in the field the astounding collection includes many items that you'll recognize from photos you've seen in books. A must see place.

If there were nothing more than the building itself it would be worth the visit, one of the world's most beautiful traditional museums. See Nerfertiti, no photo I have ever seen does her justice... the Museuminsel day pass for 18 euro is a huge bargain and gets you into all 5 island museums

The museum was very good and 2 hours weren't enough with audio guide. (Included) An old woman selling tickets out side of the museum was extremely rude. I asked her "excuse me, what is museum island?" And she said "here" with grumpy attitude. She ended up throwing my ticket and credit card on the board and push it back strongly.... More

There is something quite magical about passing through this space. Quite strict about bags or any straps hanging etc so dress appropriately.

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.
