    Very bright and airy and well laid out museum taking you through Bach's life. Good audio guides allowing you to take as much time as you like wandering around the exhibits.  more »

  • Modern and interactive museum about Bachs life and work in Leipzig. Not only for Bach fans. For all who love music.
  • Bach lover or not... This is a must see museum in Leipzig. Holds different temporary exhibitions which are very interesting. To mention the vault, where you can gaze at original portraits. On the upper floor there are multimedia points and you can listen to whatever work you choose at your heart's content. Apart the shop there is a very nice café too. My only regret was that I hadn't the opportunity to see an original manuscript by the composer.
  • Very well-curated museum for those who are interested in Bach. Audio guide included, free lockers, and a great mix of interactive exhibits with artifacts on display. Treasure room was a particular favourite!
  • They include a free audio guide in English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, and Mandarin. Interactive displays. Not very large, but lots of oppertunity to go in depth. 8€ a person to have everything included is a good price. All the staff speaks fluent English. Definately a must see in Leipzig.
  • Small and nice musseum that reflect the relation of Bach and the city.
