Discover masterpieces from pre-history and antiquity on a 3-hour tour of Berlin’s Neues Museum. See statuary, etchings and engravings from Ancient Egypt to the Mediterranean. Admire the 3,300-year-old bust of Queen Nefertiti, and much more.
What to Expect
Take a tour of the Neues Museum in central Berlin with an art historian guide, and get an insight into art and life from pre-history, through the Ancient Egyptians, and onwards.
Admire the award-winning architecture of the newly-restored Neues Museum (New Museum), which opened to the public in 2009 after suffering severe damage in World War II and neglect in the Cold War years that followed. Hear an informed commentary on the history of the museum, from its revolutionary 19th century conception, to its elaborate program by Wilhelm Kaulbach, to the current “masterplan” of its restorer, David Chipperfield.
Continue evaluating the renovation and contemporary curatorial strategies used for displaying ancient art as you walk. Discover relics from Old World cultures, including the museum's highlight, the legendary bust of Queen Nefertiti that has preserved its color (without restoration) since the Amarna period.
Explore the mysteries of the so-called “Berlin Green Head” and other treasures, such as the skull of a Neanderthal from Le Moustier, and Heinrich Schliemann’s famous treasures of ancient Troy.
