  • So much music and such fun displays. You don’t need to know anything about Bach or music to enjoy this. Original manuscripts and old instruments were amazing. I loved the display where they played...

  • One reason why I paid Leipzig a visit. To see the Bach Museum. It didn't disappoint. The audio guide is very helpful. The museum is small but pack of good historical info and collection of instrument.
  • Relatively small museum, located just opposite the Thomas kirche in the building that belonged to Bose family, merchants who were in close relations with Bach family. Really nice interactive experience with music and instruments.
