Visitors to this museum are given such a wide variety of ways to understand J S Bach's life, his family, the music and musicians of the time. We thorougly enjoyed this, and one can spend endless time listening to works,if you want.

Í have to confess that we were exhausted from walking, so we only had some fabulous coffee and cake at the superb cafe´with the museum. Have to go back to enjoy the museum as well. Only got to see his tombstone at the Nikolaikirche.

The museum has a ton of information you could spend a few hours inside. There are interesting exhibits and cool little facts to learn about Bach's childhood.
