Grassi Museum welcomes visitors to the Ethnography Museum, the Musical Instruments Museum, and the Applied Arts Museum. Each has both permanent exhibits and alternating special exhibitions.

The permanent exhibition "From Ancient Times to Historism" covers more than 3,000 years of world art history. Many special exhibitions appear regularly throughout the year, such as the Grassi Trade Fair at the end of October. The onsite café is a nice resting spot between museums.

  • Unique museum with extraordinary exhibits. You must plan hours (of course with audio guide) for the permanent exhibition between 3-4! It is worth!

  • A great Museum in a beautiful building and good parking facilities. We were at the WGT to the special exhibition there and were very happy with the supply.

  • The surprise in Leipzig. We have visited only the Museum of decorative arts and spent 3 hours. The Museum building is in itself already worth seeing in the art deco style. Especially the window by the Bauhaus artist Albers impressed me, there's a movie at the entrance to the Museum. Not miss, overlook it easily. And at the end even the cemetery behind the museum visit, a calm island in the middle of Leipzig indoor booth. Bring plenty of time.

  • Wo hin?
  • Beautiful museums with great collections. Especially the exhibitions "grassi invites" are fantastic - creative, contemporary and current themes in the Grassi Museum für Völkerkunde. The architecture and history of the building are also very exciting.

  • A very good collection in the permanent exhibition and also repeatedly featured exhibitions on a variety of topics, all in architecturally attractive surroundings... Full recommendation!

  • Worth a visit! For BBK members (artists), the entrance to the Museum of Arts and crafts is free, reduced upon presentation of the Leipzig card. Each of the museums - whether Ethnology, decorative arts and musical instruments - is worth a visit, an audio guide is useful though much more vivid text provides explanations. Invites the Johannisfriedhof to linger behind the Museum.

  • Grassi - Museum of Ethnology: very many exhibits, whose sight one could enjoy if there was not the extremely poor air in the rooms! After 15 minutes, the head smokes one because you get quite simply too little oxygen, how can you work at as a stuffy air? The employees feel very sorry! The visitor feels like under a Käseglocke...Schade, because I would like longer geblieben...aber in THE air, nothing like in the fresh AIR! For the bad air, there are two star deduction.
