As a solo traveler, I got to the museum right when it opened, bought my ticket at the kiosk across the courtyard, went inside and got an audio guide. I spent the next three hours systematically going through the 4 floors of the museum, it...More

This museum was heavily damaged in WW2 and it is only in recent years that the collection has been reassembled in a restored building. The museum interior has been stabilised and repaired without being heavily restored - leaving plenty of evidence of the damage to...More

Interesting day but in future I would look at the top 2 floors first as you end up looking at a lot of stone otherwise. After an hour or two you feel like your looking at the same things. €12 per person. We were told...More

Excellent collection from the Stone Age to the Middle Ages, focussing on Egypt, Troy and the Berlin region. English descriptions as well as German, but generally rather dry apart from on the upper floor, and rather poor on the bottom floor.

Excellent musem - Nefertiti is housed here along with other Egyptian artifacts but there are lots of other things to see and you can easily spend half a day here

It’s all quite beautiful. While there is impressive content in the displays the architecture and design of the interior is stunning! I found myself looking at the ceiling, walls and tiled floors sometimes more than the displays!
