#3 of 191 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.

  • It's a marvelous museum! The atmosphere produced by the mix between the modern and the historical settings is absolutely amazing! The walls, the ceilings, the columns are themselves masterpieces and they made a perfect frame for the antiques shown there!
  • It was insightful while visiting such a historic place. One must visit while being on tour to Berlin. I had a chance to grab a student price ticket for all the five museums. It was really wonderful. Highly recommended
