Bach Museum, Leipzig Reviews - Write a Review

  • The museum does a excellent job displaying and documenting artifacts, esp the original scores and letters. The narrative of Bach's life is also well done, but the musical exhibits are underwhelming. No coherent attempt is made to give meaning or interpretation to the music you can listen to, beyond the basic distinctions of baroque music which you can read on wikipedia.

  • The museum couldn't have been better. The exposition of Bach's private life and exquisite connection with Luther was on point. Each era of his life was depicted accordingly through his literature, compositions and influence on the city of Leipzig.

  • Great museum documenting Bach's life and music. Incredible detail and research. Take the free audio guide.

  • Really, really very impressive and full-experience museum. Even my ten year old daughter liked it. Good facilities, be sure to check out the musicroom where you can increase a specific instrument by activating a bigger accent by a push of a button!

  • Incredible Museum, nor only for the Music Lovers, but also for the ones who wish to learn more about the great master Johann Sebastian Bach. The Museum contains a lot of Information about JS Bach and is very inclusive, with Special material for the Blind and the Deaf, and is accessible with a wheelchair.
