Grassi Museum, Leipzig

(4.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A collection of huge music instruments, collections of German art and masters of the impressive renaissance, part ethnography with pearls. Provide a day full to visit this Museum, the coffee break will allow dining in a friendly atmosphere.

  • The museum has a slightly municipal feel to it and the layout is somewhat confusing. Having said that, I thought the Applied Arts museum (one of three here) was absolutely first class - especially wit...  more »
  • who wishes a quiet museum visit is wrong here. The staff speaks a permanent and also when you do give, that you would like to be left alone, they run after one and tell. Impossible.

  • Worth a visit
  • 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.
