Neues Museum, Berlin

4.4
#3 of 193 in Museums in Berlin
For a rare look at the iconic bust of the Egyptian queen Nefertiti, visit Neues Museum on the city's famous Museum Island. The museum houses vast collections of prehistoric and ancient Egyptian artifacts. The building itself draws both art and architecture enthusiasts with its award-winning use of modern iron construction and original Neoclassical design. Originally built between 1843 and 1855, it was designed by architect Friedrich August Stuler. The museum was closed in 1939 and was heavily damaged during the bombing raids of the city. Architect David Chipperfield spearheaded the post-war rebuilding efforts, and the museum finally reopened in 2009. Skip the long lines by booking your tickets online.

  • The placement of the pieces and the illuminations, a little scarce for the sheltered works. Nefertiti and head of Green Hombrre, great.

  • Unexpectedly strong collection of Rembrandt and a major Caravaggio painting. Numbering and lettering system of rooms is hard to understand but staff was helpful when asked.  more »

  • Very interesting place. Great exhibitions, and a lot of great things to see. It is sad, though, that English descriptions are very basic. Remember to feed your eyes not only with exhibits, but also with architecture of the building. All together is very impressing.
  • Interesting, however, it is not chronological set, but divided by themes! Anyhow, it is worth a visit. It is very well organized for the entrance, and you have to get a locker with an € deposit prior to entrance into the galleries. Also, consider a few hours to visit the entire museum, as it is quite big.
