“Nofretete - excellent exhibition”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The museum is perfect, but to buy a ticket you have to quew outside in the snow - and there are many visitors .... freezing and long to wait. This is very inconvenient!

“Nefertiti Exhibition”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This was an exhibition celebrating the anniversary of the discovery of the famous head of Nefertiti.The permanent exhibition is also very comprehensive and easy to follow.However the for me the most interesting part of this museum is the beautiful reconstruction of the building itself, which is quite remarkable.

“One of five great museums and galleries on one site”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Do at least see the bust of Nefertiti and the golden head dress once thought to have been worn by Helen of Troy. There is a photo of the discoverer's wife wearing it and looking pretty pleased with herself as well she might!

But there is a vast amount of other stuff to see. There is a very good DVD on sale in the gift shop. If you can find it on the internet ,I recommend you see it before visiting.

“Lovely Building; Disappointing Hangings”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We understood this museum picked up where the Alte National Gallerie left off, but on our visit all of the Expressionism et alia were somewhere else. For those in search of post WWII or later, it likely would be a treat.

“A fitting home for Queen Nefertiti”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Although the museum has been open now for a few years, this was my first visit to the reconstructed museum as usually, the wait in the queue for tickets was too long! However this time there were only 4 people in front of me (possibly because it was snowing at the time!) and the ticket allowed me immediate entry.
The museum hasn't been completely restored as the architect has left much of the damage caused by the bombing during WW II and the subsequent neglect by the East German Government, on show with a few rooms restored to their (more or less) full glory. But it is good to see all the artifacts now beautifully displayed in one place. The star of the museum has to be the wonderful bust of Queen Nefertiti - displayed on its own in a small domed room - and what an impression she makes even after several thousand years! But there are many other treasures - the collection of papyrus documents are fascinating as are the sarcophagi and the decorated mummy cases. And don't forget the gold treasure from Troy - even though the Russians stole most of the treasure at the close of WW II, there is still enough displayed to take your breath away! There really is too much to list here but if ancient history is your interest, this is a museum not to be missed! By the way, when you buy a Berlin Welcome Card, tell them that you want to visit the museums and for this museum, you only have to pay a small surcharge - the other museum entries are free.
