“Bust Of Nefertiti - A Must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Apart from King Tutankhamum's Death Mask, the bust of Queen Nefertiti is the second most iconic piece of Ancient Egyptian art and it's here in the Neues Museum. This alone makes the Neues Museum an absolute must see.

“Impressive but stand alone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

I really liked the museum but it was bit like seeing one wing of the British Museum and then having to go to other Museum for more . So the 3 day all Berlin museum card is a must as you need to see with the other museums on the Island.

“Nefertiti!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

As the picture already shows, Neues museum houses the egyptian collection and the famous and amazing bust of Nefertiti. I would go only to see the bust, but the museum is not just about Nefertiti. Take some time to explore the other collections and do not miss the Golden Hat!

“Excellent Exhibition of East and West Art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

This exhibit shows wonderful art from both East and West Berlin and shows that most of the art is "political", just different politics. If you did not go along with the "party line" on either side of the wall, your career was limited.

“Worth a visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Neues museum is definitely worth a visit if you are around the museum island in Berlin. It probably houses one of the largest egyptian and prehistory collections in the world. The audio guide you get for free is very informative, also in some of the rooms you may find information sheets with additional historic, cultural etc information.
Nefertiti is a must see. The bottom floor with afterlife exhibition is really good, too.
To see everything properly you would need half a day.
