Besides of the usual amount of reading on the walls of museums, this one also gives you the opportunity to have a break on the couch, pick some of the Bach's composition from an interactive list and listen to it.

There are some manuscripts and some instruments, well a a lot of them, but the main thing here is listening. You could spend an hour looking but 100 listening. My wife got sucked in. Wait, I think I see her now?

This museum is very well assembled with informative displays and an audio-guide. The problem is with unprofessional, under-educated and rude staff who are not capable of conversing with foreigners. The museum opened 3 minutes after its scheduled time, because a group of staff members seemed...More

Web site says 10 am - 6 pm Tuesday - Sunday. Leipzig is a town with a lot of music of all kinds. If you are there for Bach, I would say schedule your visit when there is something good going on at St. Thomas Church across... More
