Had a nice couple of hours at this museum! Enjoyed the exhibitions, but nothing really spectacular or outstanding, aside from the golden hat and Nefertiti. But don't go here when you want to wander for hours.

Really great museum, but all museums on museum island are great. I especially enjoyed their Armana room with Nefertitti/Akheneton displays. The bust of Nefertitti is awesome - forbidden to photo however.

I think this is the best museum on the Museum Island (just my opinion:)). You will need not less than 3 hourse to see everything they have. The most popular attraction is Nefertiti bust. Museum has a special room for it with guardiance. You can't make photo there (but you can make a photo of any other museum item). It... More

Tremendous exhibits topped by the mesmeric bust of Nefertiti. This museum needs a whole day. Don't try and do two museums in one day. You would miss so much.

Astonishing renovation of this crippled jewel, reopened in 2009, very thorough exhibition of the Egyptian Collection, with many highlights, esp Nefertiti's Bust and the Green Head among many many others. The building itself is dazzling and a very moving testament to both its damage during WWII and its painstaking renovation. There's a nice book for 7.5 Euros in the gift... More

It is a huge and very nice museum, you need time to check all the collections, there are 2 floors and many rooms to visit, of course the main attraction is the face of Nefertiti

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.
