Some very impressive pieces of history. It was a great place to visit with several museums close by. It is a big museum with plenty to admire.

I fell in love with the building and the artefacts inside it. This is my favourite museum in Berlin.

The atention from the guards is awful. Totally unpolite and disrepsectful. and the Museum is not that good either.

The Neues Museum is one of the major attractions at Museum Island in Berlin. The museum houses a collection of Egyptian, pre-historic and early history artefacts. Closed at the beginning of WWII and heavily damaged during the bombings of Berlin, the Neues was only reopened to the public in 2009. Today it can be visited from 10am to 6pm daily... More

I am interested in ancient history and went primarily to see the bust of Nefertiti. It did not disappoint. But the museum is so much more. Simply amazing to be able to see the artifacts and relics of the past - including skulls of the homo sapiens and Neanderthal man Nd the gold hat!

The Neues is a must see museum for anyone with even the slightest interest in ancient art and civilizations. We spent several hours here and as with any major collection we only scraped the surface. A very worthwhile visit which we greatly enjoyed. This museum contains many exhibits which are world "must sees" like Nefertit's bust and the Golden Hat,... More

A fantastic museum if you love ancient history! The Egyptian collection is really amazing. I was mesmerised with the sarcophagus collection & burial art. Lots of really old & interesting things to look at!

On the area known as Museum Island is the Neues Museum - a collection from man's earliest years through to post Roman times. There are well-displayed artefacts which you can wander round and marvel at the skills of the early jewellery makers, the Egyptian mummies and gladiators armour. Best of all is a lrge domed room with the head of... More

Compared to the Pergamon, Neues Museum barely had a queue which was nice. They house a large collection of Egyptian artefacts, including reconstructed remnants of a small temple where you can see colorful paintings of ancient Egypt. Personally, I think the British Museum has a larger collection and more mummy-related artefacts (maybe more interesting for families with children or overgrown... 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.
