The museum reopened its doors to the public in 2009 and combines geographically and thematically related exhibits pooled together from three separate collections at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
Legendary archaeological treasures, such as the bust of Nefertiti, combine with world-famous exhibits from the Museum of Prehistory and Early History to create a unique panorama of early human history. Highlights include the skull of the Neanderthals of Le Moustier, Heinrich Schliemann's collection of Trojan antiquities, or the mysterious bronze-age "Berlin Gold Hat".
