The impressive Neues Museum on Museum Island reopened its doors in 2009 after a big restoration and marks the home of the 3,300-year-old bust of Egyptian queen Nefertiti – one of the most famous works of the ancient world. Skip the line and get face-to-face with that ancient icon (and much, much more!)
Step back into the ancient world with a visit to the Neues Museum. This recently restored building is rich in antiquities, curiosities, and mythology. Divide your time here between the two (equally fascinating) permanent exhibitions.
The Ägyptisches Museum und Papyrussammlung
Ancient Egyptian and Nubian cultures abound in here. Lock eyes with the portrait heads of kings. Walk through three chambers of trinkets from the Old Kingdom. See the famous head of Tiye (one of the most influential women in ancient Egypt, believed to have lived from about 1398 BC – 1338 BC) and have your mind blown by the famous 3,300-year-old bust of Egyptian queen Nefertiti.
The Museum für Vor- und Frühgeschichte
Over 6,000 archaeological items represent life from the Stone Age through to the Middle Ages. See the Neanderthal from Le Moustier, gaze at wall paintings featuring Nordic mythology in the Odin, Urns and Looted Art room and witness the Berlin Gold Hat - a late Bronze Age headdress piece crafted from thin gold leaf, which originates from 1000-800 BC.
