Berlin 2016 - Neues Museum

The Neues Museum was built between 1843 and 1855. It was the 2nd museum to be built on the Museum Island - and the architect was Friedrich August Stuler - a student of Karl Friedrich Schinkel. The museum houses the Prehistory and Early History Collection - but the most popular exhibits are probably the Egyptian collections - with the enigmatic and iconic bust of Queen Nefertiti as its centre of attraction.

The interior of the museum is quite beautiful.

The Egyptian collection is the main attraction. Unfortunately taking pictures of Queen Nefertiti's bust is not allowed.

The museum has an impressive collection of Egyptian mummies - and these are displayed in a special crypt at the lower level.
