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.

  • Even if you are not a great fan of Egyptian, Greek and Roman, just go there to see the exceptional statue of Nefertiti!

  • August 2022 • incredible museum! Loved the artifacts from Troy and all of the Egyptian history here as well. They have the bust of Nefertiti on display which was awesome to see. Timed tickets are required for this museum, so plan ahead and buy online!
  • One of the best museums in the world. The collections are amazing but wat really gets me is the magnificent building. At the same time you are in old buildings with bully holes from the war, combined with majestic new modern design of the new parts!! Avoid the cafeteria run by a nasty old bat! Get tickets in advance because you get a time slot for entry!
