After a major renovation, the remarkable Neues Museum on Museum Island reopened in 2009 as the home of the 3,300-year-old bust of Egyptian queen Nefertiti, one of the most famous masterpieces of the ancient world. Skip the queue and explore the Neues Museum.
The Neues Museum takes you to the ancient world. This beautifully renovated structure is brimming with treasures, oddities, and legend. Spend your time here dividing your attention between the two (equally intriguing) permanent exhibits.
The Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection
The ancient Egyptian and Nubian civilizations are prominent in this area. See the picture heads of rulers E. See the famed Tiye head (one of the most powerful ladies in ancient Egypt, thought to have lived between 1398 BC and 1338 BC) and be blown away by the legendary 3,300-year-old bust of Egyptian queen Nefertiti.
The Museum of Pre- and Early History
Over 6,000 archaeological artefacts depict life from the Stone Age through the Middle Ages.
Witness the Neanderthal from Le Moustier, wall murals illustrating Nordic mythology in the Odin, Urns, and Looted Art chamber, and the Berlin Gold Hat – a late Bronze Age headdress item fashioned from thin gold leaf dating from 1000-800 BC.
Opening hours 10:00 - 18:00 everyday
