Neues Museum

The Neues Museum, meaning “New Museum” is one of the leading museums in Berlin, Germany and is located to the north of the Altes Museum or “Old Museum” in an area called Museum Island. It was built between 1843 and 1855 and was heavily damaged during the bombing of Berlin. Following the museums rebuilding, it reopened in 2009 and testifies the neoclassical architecture of museums in the 19th-century. Exhibits include the Egyptian and Prehistory and Early History collections, as it did before the war. The artifacts it houses include the iconic bust of the Egyptian queen Nefertiti.
