Greatly damaged during the war, this elegant Classical edifice, home to the Neues Museum (1843-55) designed by F.A. Stüler, was treated to a masterful restoration in the early 21C. The modern, minimalist settings provide an ideal background to display the masterpieces from the former Egyptian and Pre- and Protohistory Museums. Objects from the era of Pharaoh Akhenaton are the highlights of the collection, among which the famous bust of Queen Nefertiti.
