  • The museum is by the St. Thomas Churh and is very neat. Has a good collection of Bach's story and is quite interactive. Worth it going especially if you are a lover of the classics! 
  • The Museum offers a comprehensive information about Johann Sebastian Bach, his family, his places and his time. For the visit you should expect 1-2 hours

  • Einfach toll! Ein Muss für Bachfans!!!
  • We got married in the summer Hall there. It is a really special place, directly in the Bach archive. The museum itself is a small, but very fine Museum with very helpful and friendly staff. A place where it both interesting is to browse, where one feels at the same time but also very welcome. For a visit to Leipzig I recommend it very much because it gives a more personal impression as other places.
