I could spend a whole day here, so if you want to do more than just this, I'd suggest taking a look at what is on exhibit (and be careful of renovations and closings) and then go just for those. The Berlin Gold Hat is not to be missed - the explanatory notes are revelatory.

The Egyptian collection is great, very interesting to explore and the Nefertiti bust is beautiful. If you're not very into history or museums, you might want to give this a pass - it wasn't worth the 12 euros for us as there are many attractions or museums we found more interesting, for example, Berlin Underground Tours, Checkpoint Charlie Museum or...

If had to pick only a couple of Museums to visit in Berlin this is a must see. Some great displays of peices that would have been destroyed in the Isis destruction in Aleppo (now saved!!)

The Neues museum is huge. I spent 3-4 hours looking at everything. The number and variety of objects from ancient Egypt is astounding. Buy a day pass to museum island or a museum card at another museum to skip the ticket line at the Neues.

The only reason to come here is to see Nefertiti's bust, but don't plan to get a picture of it! The staff were so controlling and irritating. First they said I could have my GoPro with its extension stick. Then I got yelled at by the bag checker and told that no, I'm not allowed to have it. So confusing!... More

Well most of the collection was Egyptian antiquities... superb well preserved statuses, sarcophagus, mummies, wall temples and above all the fabulous Head of Queen Nefertiti which was available also for the blinds via a replica and description in Braille. Ticket was 12/15 Euros

This was my favorite museum of the 3 museums we visted on museum island. It has outstanding antiquities art. The Egyptian collection is superb. The bust of Nefertiti is one of the most beautiful works of art I have seen. The golden hat is also fascinating. Neues museum was remodeled into an architectural gem. Bring your camera and wear comfortable... More

Conservation to the Contemporary; a glimpse of how architecture of the past and present is being represented in the Global Reality is the meaning towards understanding the Neues Museum within the City of Berlin

Lots of Egyptian artefacts. Golden helmet and the bust of Nefertiti are the top exhibits. Great audio guides and easy to follow layout. Only thing that spoilt our visit was the huge number of unaccompanied youngsters. Had lunch in the cafe where the service and food was superb, despite being very busy. Had a helpful waiter who suggested a lovely... More

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.
