BERLIN.- At 11 a.m. on Wednesday, 1 September 2010, Michael Eissenhauer, Director General of the National Museums in Berlin, was delighted to be able to greet Harald Fuchs (48), from near Erlangen, as the millionth visitor to the Neues Museum and handed him the weighty volume 'Neues Museum', published by Nicolai Verlag Berlin, as well as a bouquet of flowers.

Harald Fuchs was accompanied by his daughter, Claudia (8). They were on their way home from a holiday at the Baltic Sea. Father and daughter were making a quick stop-over in Berlin to see the bust of Nefertiti in the Neues Museum. After congratulating the visitors, Michael Eissenhauer took them on a tour of the Neues Museum, accompanied by Friederike Seyfried, Director of the Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection and Matthias Wemhoff, Director of the Museum of Prehistory and Early History.

Visitor interest has not waned since the reopening of the Neues Museum on 16 October 2009. More than 100,000 visitors have streamed into the museum every month, with nearly 4000 people passing through its doors each day, eager to get a chance to admire the unique building and the art treasures it contains from the inside.
