“worth for the Nefertiti statue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Like all the museums in Berlin you should take your time in order to visit it. There was a temporary exhibition with egyptian art and was more than worth it. Many sarcophagus too. Nefertiti is double!! the original in the center and a bronze copy for blind people in order to touch it. Good work!

“Do not be fooled by the name”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

The museum deals with old things, not new ones. The "neues" just refers to the more recent construction of the building (spectacular, by the way) than the "altes". The contents are: Egyptian and other Mediterranian antiquities, some of them key items in world history. The Akhenaton and Nefertiti displays are such. However, some parts of the museum - the sacrophagi - are somewhat messy and do not communicate well. Also, pictures are not allowed inside the most important rooms on the first floor. Anyway, the museum comes strongly recommended!

“History+ science+ambience+entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic Museum! The location is great. The museum had been destroyed in ww2 and has been rebuild in a fantastic way. You can taste the history in the air. The exhibition about Egypt "in Licht von Armana" gives you an amazing inside in the live in Egypt during the time 4.000bc to 500 bc. Kids get an Ipad with a special tour on it and some tasks to solve. All the kids were pretty happy with that.

“Best Museum in Germany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

This building was rebuild preserving some of the beautiful interior after destruction and many years of neglect after war and the communist regime. It houses fantastic treasures of artifacts one must see.
