For some, this is probably the top destination on the Museum Island since it houses the Nefertiti Bust, a painted stucco-coated limestone bust of the Great Royal Wife of Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten. The museum was destroyed in World War II and was finally rebuilt in 2009. The place is divided into four levels and houses extensive and uppermost collections from the Egyptian Museum, the Papyrus Collection, and the Collection of Classical Antiquities. The museum was designed by the classicist architect Friedrich August Stuler in the 19th century and was formerly an extension of the Old Museum. In 2003 its reconstruction began under the British architect David Chipperfield who respected the original structure. The most relevant highlights of its collection are the stucco-coated lime bust of Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, the Green Head of Berlin from the late Egyptian period, precious silver vessels from the Treasury of Priam (Heinrich Schliemann), The Bronze Age Berlin Golden Hat or Tiara, and an ax head dated to the Stone Age of 700,000 years.
