If you are classical music lover, than it is a nice visit. If you specifically like Brahms, than this is a must. You can learn about his early life, you can even play on instruments once Brahms was playing.

Lovely little place in a charming neighborhood. The tour guides are warm & knowledgeable. The place is tiny. But filled with great photos and librettos.

Any music lover is sure to get a lot out of this museum. Located on a quiet back street, you have to ring the doorbell to be let in, and you'll receive a warm welcome from the staff, who are obviously just as passionate about...More
