- The Egyptian Museum lies in one of the twin buildings facing Schloss Charlottenburg which were originally used as the royal barracks. The centrepiece of the museum's collection is the world-famous, 3,000-year-old bust of Nofretete. Don't forget the other treasures though, which include a portrait of Queen Tiy and King Akhenaton from the 14th century BC. The collection contains a total of over 2,000 ancient Egyptian masterpieces. Temporary exhibitions are staged in the great hall, which was modelled on King Sahure's Pyramid Temple.
