Neues Museum

The Neues (new) Museum has just been reopened and is now dedicated to the German Egyptian collection. There's been a bit of controvery of late, mostly because Egypt thinks that the Germans might have stollen a few of the peices.

The thing that they most want back is Nefertiti. To be honest, Egpytian Art isn't really my thing - I just don't appreciate the stuff - many pots, many statues...

But... The Neues Museum is an architectural masterpiece, creatively blending old and new styles into a really interesting exhibition space. And Nefertiti is pretty special too.
