The Neues Museum is a museum located in Mitte. Construction started in 1843 and lasted until about 1855, when the museum was finally open to the public. Unfortunately, it closed shortly after the beginning of World War II and was heavily damaged during the bombing of Berlin. After the war ended, the building, which was located in the Soviet occupied section, was left to decay. Reconstruction work started 41 years later (in 1986) by the East German government.
In 2009, the museum opened to the public once again. Today, the museum is most famous for showcasing the bust of Nefertiti along with thousands of Egyption artifacts. The Neues Museum also houses Prehistory and Early History collections, as it did before the war
This museum includes an audio-guide with your entrance ticket. Lockers and coat-check are available inside.
