The development of the highly acclaimed Art Center Museum began with the the New Museum by Frederick William IV in 1841. The work of Schinkel's pupil Friedrich August Stüler was among the most important construction projects in Prussia. It has been almost completely destroyed during World War II and is currently being redeveloped as part of the Masterplan Museum Island.
After the planned reopening in fall 2009 it will house the Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection, with its famous bust of Egyptian Queen Nefertiti and other works of art from the era of King Akhenaton. In addition, a part of the museum will display pre-and early findings from the Stone Age and later periods.
