Grassi Museum, Leipzig

4.7
#5 of 23 in Museums in Leipzig
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. Tour the Art Deco column hall, designed in shining red, gold, and blue, with its 12 ceiling-high columns. Walk through the inner courtyards, then check out the old Johannis cemetery. 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.

  • Museum contains three separately bookable museums Visual art, Ethnology, music instruments. Tickets can be combined. The premises are very representative. Only the signs in the building could be verfeinrt. Available from very much helpful Prsonal. Changing special exhibitions provide variety. The design of df exhibition space is very affectionate, she uses different media, what makes up the lively character of the Museum as a whole. DS existing Café is absolutely ok.

  • I was many times in this Museum (live in Leipzig) and there is never a dull moment! There is to discover something new every time. The price is so definitely justified. You could spend a whole day in the Museum, so bring plenty of time! The Museum is very child-friendly and gambling opportunities, as well as interactive exhibits.

  • Can't understand why this place doesn't get more attention on Leipzig guides. If this was in a major city it would be rightly regarded as a world-class museum, housed in a beautiful Art Deco building. For fans it's worth it for the architecture and light fittings alone! In particular I loved the applied arts area's array of Art Deco homewares and their medieval to Renaissance objects. The whole thing is well-curated and not just "let's put everything we have on display". The cafe is one of the best museum cafes I've eaten at, all freshly made and good range of vegetarian options. The shop is a reasonable size and has some interesting books, just a shame their catalogues don't have everything in them (although the attendants had no problems with us photographing objects). Most signage is German only but there are some English. There are also English guide leaflets and an audio tour to help. If you like history, art and design do not leave the city without coming here.
  • Museum in Grassi has nothing to do with Palazzo Grassi in Venice. But it is equaly charming, interesting, large, informative and beautiful.
  • One of the best place in Leipzig. Loving it. ❤
  • Have 3 different parts to show. Musical, historical and modern.
  • Cool!
