What's on Neues Museum

Ancient Egypt provides comprehensive insight into the continuity and changes of Ancient Egyptian culture over four millennia, as well as the cultural history of Ancient Sudan. The exhibition concept places special emphasis on giving visitors a good idea of what the Ancient Egyptians looked like, through a series of sculptures arranged in several rooms according to various viewpoints.

Showcasing several pre-historic cultures from around the world, Pre-History and Early History features arifacts and objects from the Norse civilizations, the Trojans, early Cypriote culture, the communites along the Rhine River, and the Romans.

Once lost in the Rhine from the 3rd century, iron tools and waggon parts, padlocks and shackles, bronze cauldrons and silverware take center stage in the Barbarian Treasure of Neupotz.

Take a journey through the earliest eras of human history on the upper floor of the Museum of Prehistory and Early History. This remarkable collection traces the development of early European history with outstanding original pieces. Beginning on level 3 in the Roter Saal, which gives you a taste of what an exhibition in the late 19th century would have been like, then proceed to the modern archaeology gallery, showcasing recent finds from Berlin.

Don't miss the Stone Age gallery, which features the famous 11-year-old Neanderthal from Le Moustier in France and the popular elk found at Berlin's Hansaplatz in Tiergarten. The Bronze Age room features impressive dioramas, exhibits and background scenes, and a three-dimensional view of the oldest known battlefield in human history. End your journey with the world-renowned Berlin Golden Hat and displays of Iron Age cultures.

Since it was placed in the North Dome Room of the Neues Museum, which reopened in 2009, The Bust of Nefertiti has drawn the attention of hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. The timeless appearance of the face has become an icon of beauty over the past 100 years. But what do we actually know about the ancient Egyptian queen and her world-famous likeness? And how did this bust end up in the Neues Museum?

Today, you can see The Bust of Nefertiti in the North Cupola Hall on the second floor. Nefertiti's gaze runs along the entire longitudinal axis of the house and meets the monumental figure of the sun god Helios on the other side in the south dome hall. Nefertiti is the “Sun Queen” who, together with her husband Akhenaten, worships the new sun religion. Helios is the sun god, whose depiction, created in Roman times, shows the "new" image of Egypt in ancient times.

Trace the history of the bust, from its creation in the 14th century BC to its discovery in 1912, before looking into its reception in the 20th and 21st centuries. You can even see a 3D-scan of the bust, created in 2008.

We never experienced any problem, Museum was very awesome and museum workers helped us a lot. Having a turkish audio guide is a very big advantage for who don’t know english very well.

It was an amazing experience to see Nefertiti and all those artifacts from Egypt. I was a little disappointed because we couldn't see the treasures of Troy.

The popular Pergamon Museum in Berlin is a great solution to a first world problem; it was built because there wasn't enough room in the nearby Bode Museum for all its artistic and archaeological relics. Construction carried on even through WWI and the great inflation of the 1920s. The then completed Pergamon was also badly damaged at the end of WWII (though fortunately its contents escaped damage). NOTE: The Pergamon Museum will be closed until 2027.

This highly interactive museum lets visitors feel what it was like to live behind the wall - in the DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik). It chronicles, via video and film, daily life as it was under Communism. The museum also includes hundreds of ways to help you experience life behind the iron curtain, including watching East German TV shows, being 'bugged', voting in a (rigged) election and taking a (simulated) car ride in an iconic Trabi.
