Masterpieces from different eras of ancient Egypt
The collection of the Egyptian Museum and the papyrus collection are always worth a visit – they are located in the New Museum on Berlin's Museum Island and attract numerous visitors every year with their imposing statues, fascinating papyri, and heavy stone sarcophagi from the time of Ancient Egypt. Furthermore, works of art from Sudan can be found here, such as reliefs from the Pyramid Chapels in Meroë.
The papyrus collection is a very special highlight: If you have always wanted to see Homer's "Iliad" or manuscripts of the "Sinuhe novel" with your own eyes, this is the place to be. This impressive "library of antiquity" shows how the Egyptian and Nubian cultures have changed over the millennia. In addition to the Egyptian Museum and the Papyrus Collection, the Neues Museum also houses the Museum of Pre- and Early History and the Collection of Classical Antiquities.
The architecture of the Neues Museum is also an eye-catcher: the classicist building was built in the middle of the 19th century and is considered the main work of the architect Friedrich August Stüler. After its destruction in the Second World War, it was restored by the renowned British architect David Chipperfield. The Neues Museum is part of the Museum Island Berlin and thus part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage – a must-see on every Berlin-visit!
