There's a lot to see here and even more to listen to. We "rushed" through in about an hour and a half; we could have easily spent another hour. Lots of opportunities to listen to music. Really well done, highly recommend.

It's a very nice and modern museum with a lot of information. It's not as suitable for children as described

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 has a very extensive archive of bachs work and for that reason alone is a must visit for bach enthusiasts. I preferred the museum in eisenbach as general museum about bach.

The Museum is middle in the centre of Leipzig, so if you visit the Bach Memorial or the famous Thomas-Church it is next by. Inside you come in touch with original instruments which Bach played, many old letters and original and rare music sheets and...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
