What Visitors Say About Neues Museum

This was a dream come true for me and to this day this is the museum I likes the most. The museum focuses mostly on Egyptian and pre history and early history collections which includes the famous bust of Egyptian queen Nefertiti.

Pyramids and Pharaohs and the world of mummies always fascinated me and walking between them at the Neues Museum awakened the inner child. Checked out every floor of the museum with my eyes bulged out because of the excitement.
