The Neues Museum showcases the Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection, as well as the Museum of Prehistory, featuring objects from the Collection of Classical Antiquities. Highlights include the iconic bust of Nefertiti and the famous of head of Tiy.
The Neues Museum reopened its doors to the public in 2009 after painstaking restoration work that was undertaken by the offices of the British architect David Chipperfield. The museum combines geographically and thematically related exhibits pooled together from three separate collections at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin: the collection of Egyptian art from the Ägyptisches Museum und Papyrussammlung, of prehistoric objects from the Museum für Vor- und Frühgeschichte, and of classical antiquities from the Antikensammlung. This joint exhibition featuring exhibits of unparalleled breadth and diversity allows visitors to trace the development of prehistoric and protohistoric cultures, spanning from the Middle East to the Atlantic, from north Africa to Scandinavia.
