Good museum for ancient history

Mainly focusses on early artefacts from Egypt and Rome. Lots of smaller finds from the early Bronze Age too.

Lovely museum, amazing exhibits and beautifully curated. Unfortunately completely ruined by the appalling behaviour of many (not all) of the museum staff. Every single room we went in someone shouted at us for either touching the glass cases the exhibits were in (we weren't), touching the wall of the room (again we weren't and ??), 'taking photos' (we weren't), standing...

A good museum with the Godess Nefertiti as the best experience. The museum is a bit oldfashioned though and would get a lot more stars if the exibition was presented a bit more modern - and with more information for the kids and teens.

Invidious comparisons are always dangerous so here goes. The British Museum's Egyptian exhibits are hard to rival but there are so many of them and of such great magnitude are they that visiting the BM Egyptian departments can be a little hard work. Not so the Neues Museum where Egypt and her history are laid out in comparatively simple and... More

It was our first visit to the New Museum after it has undergone massive restoration. And what a success! Not only does the museum contain amazing artefacts, but it also tells a story about how these artefacts were presented back when archeology and museums were the new, and more celebrated than today. The building gets turnes into a part of... More

Nefertiti's bust is the star of the show, but be sure to give yourself time to see the wonderful sculpture collection. Buy tickets right outside. No need to pre-book. A must-see when in Berlin.

Be sure to reserve and entry time ahead of time and you won't have to wait in line. Also if you are visiting more than one museum on museum island consider buying a 3 day museum pass for 24 Euros ... great deal!

We went here mainly to see Nefertiti, and it was worth it for that. However, we found the layout of the museum to be somewhat haphazard and it was sometimes difficult to know what it was you were viewing. We didn't spend as long here as we'd planned because of this.

I spent three hours in this museum just looking at the Egyptian stuff! Didn't even really look at all the other stuff in the museum. So much stuff including Nefertiti's bust which I haven't wanted to see ever since I was a child. It was amazing! So much other stuff as well. If I had spent longer in the museum... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
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.
