Rooms empty, boxes still full! Exhibition set-up for „In the Light of Amarna. 100 Years of the Nefertiti Discovery”

Neues Museum

For the last ten weeks, preparations for the forthcoming exhibition 'In the Light of Amarna - 100 Years of the Nefertiti Discovery' have been in full swing on the two floors of the Neues Museum, on the Museumsinsel Berlin. Exhibition technicians have been busy painting, sanding, hammering, and drilling, so that the 'Light of Amarna' can shine by 7 December, when the show which centres on the famous Nefertiti bust is due to open its doors to the public.

Art transportation experts and conservators have been working hand-in-hand to set in place the more than 1300 objects featured in the exhibition.

From 7 December these objects, many never before seen, will tell the tale of religion, art, and day-to-day life in the former Egyptian royal city of Amarna.
