Neues Museum was built between 1843-1855 by Friedrich August Stüler. It is considered as one of the best displays of history of 19th century art through the medium of art, science and technology. It was somewhat of a revolution in the process of museum design. Unfortunately, like many buildings of the era- this building suffered major bombings too during the time of world War 2. Staying as a bombing site for the longest time, this site was finally considered for renovation in the late 90s. In the year 2003, under the supervision and expertise of David Chipperfield. Today, it not only has hints of its conventional charm, but also has an air of modern architecture. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Berlin itinerary 7 days.

I loved the museum and its setup. Most of museum shows Egyptian culture and it’s fascinating! We were there on Monday morning so it wasn’t crowded at all. Once you pay entrance, you can leave your clothes inside for free and take audio guide for free. The thing I resent is that it wasn’t written anywhere about the free audio guide, and the staff wasn’t offering on their own. Good thing was we asked. Taking photos of Nefertiti is not allowed.
Excellent museum and not particularly crowded when we went on a Saturday in mid October. You could get a very good close-up view of the most famous exhibit - the head of Nefertiti. Lots to see and the preserved parts of the building itself add to the atmosphere. Allow plenty of time. Very good restaurant inside as well.
Amazing place lots to see spread over three floors. The Egyptian artifacts are amazing. Even the building has a history. The only reason for four stars not five is the audio guide whilst gave good information the numbers to get the guide were very small and easy to miss
Amazing artefacts ranging from Egyptian tombs and Viking weaponry to Cave man tools and Giant Elk skeletons. It’s truly mind blowing and it’s huge. You can easily spend 2-5 hours here and it’s my favourite museum on museum island!
An impressive museum that displays a very large collection of ancient artifacts some dating back from 3000 BC. It allows the visitors to draw the line between what is legend and what is history clarifying what happened in the city of Troy or in Egypt with the statue of Nefertiti for example. The visit is really worth it.
