About Bach Museum, Leipzig

Visit one of the oldest buildings of Leipzig, the museum displays the life and achievements by the famous heavyweight musician named Johann Sebastian Bach and his family. It is located just opposite to the St. Thomas Church (Thomaskirche). The highlight of the museum is the ‘treasure room’, located at the downstairs. Visit the room where you get to see one of the original manuscripts created by Bach himself. Some precious belongings of Bach are also on display, in this room. Treat your ears with some of his melodious composition in the audio room and visit Bach’s Orchestra where baroque instruments are put on display.

Apart from these, you can stroll in the pleasure garden of the museum or grab a small bite in the Cafe of the museum.

Bach Museum, Leipzig Reviews

  • An excellent job is done there! I had the chance to learn more about Bach and listen to his music. An interactive museum with a lot to offer. I enjoyed it so much being there!

  • Really great museum. Not very big though. You can spend some quality time there, learn about Bach's life and enjoy his music. The museum is very interactive. You get an audio guide, available in various languages, upon entering. There is a coat room and free of charge lockers in the enterance hall. The museum is free of charge on first Tuesday of the month. On that day the audio guide is also free of charge. Highly recommended!

  • Cool museum! Learned a great deal about Bach and super impressed how many of his original works survived. It was mindblowing seeing the actual notes he scribbled and the music sheets from the 1700s.

  • 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.
