We enjoyed a walk around this museum which was well laid out and had interesting exhibits with lots of information. Not a priority if you are on a tight schedule but worth a visit if you buy a museum pass for use over 3 days...More

The museum had good collection and display. It is next to Pergamonmuseum but it was much more quiet.

Went there using our museum pass, specially as both myself and my misses are fascinated by the Egyptian culture. It is really really interesting and definitely worth a visit if you are also into mummy’s, tombs and other artefacts ;)

A rather small museum but with a good collection of ancient art. Being a Cypriot, I found the Cyprus collection very interesting. Unlike the British museum, the Egyptian collection is not as elaborate and therefore not as overwhelming. One has the time, therefore, to explore...More

I thought the artifacts were laid out in a very logical order and there were often dates on the walls so you could look from oldest to newest. Audio guides were included in the price of the ticket which was nice but the headset they...More

Simply great! I was in the British Museum and the Louvre and they are great but the Neues Museum is an equal! Its Egyptian collection is just great. And no lines at all!

Aside from a very fine Egyptian collection, the (somewhat comically named) “New Museum” contains a couple of hair-raisingly beautiful items to view. First and foremost THE iconic bust of Nefertiti. Yes, that one. There’s a line around it, no photos allowed, but if you do...More

If you like Egyptian collections, Neues is for you. The exhibits include Egyptian and Prehistory and Early History collections including the famous bust of the Egyptian queen Nefertiti. The building itself is neoclassical architecture and is interesting in its own right. Overall a very nice...More

There was a significant line to wait for tickets but the visit was worth the trip. Teenagers enjoyed selecting the panels to view in the cabinets. Spent a good 3 hours here and would have liked to have stayed longer.
