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.

  • You have bought an all museums ticket just to find out you have to stand in line for hours for each of them - and you will be issued a mandatory time slot for entering - up to five hours in advance...

  • One of the best museums of antique art. Egyptian collection is impressive. Building as it it also interesting and has story behind, which they try to tell you from the text on the newly builded walls. I was enjoying several hours my trip through ages but will come back to explore more.
  • 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!
