Museum Fur Musikinstrumente Der Universitat Leipzig, Leipzig Reviews - Write a Review

  • In my view this is Leipzig's most "must see" and probably world-unique attraction : and you don't have to be a classical music 'boffin' to appreciate it. The sheer number and variety of the (essentially, but not exclusively, classical) music instruments on display is staggering, and enables one to trace the development of instruments through time with relative ease and amazement. One quickly realises that each actually went through a number of design permutations over a number of years before arriving at what we are familiar with today. And that, despite traditionalist classical music enthusiasts, instruments have continually evolved and will continue to evolve. It's a large museum but you must not miss the last part which deals with recorded music : of which Leipzig was a world centre. Most people will be aware that music at one time was recorded on metal cylinders and played through 'phonographs. But probably not that preceding this, the first 'record' discs were actually cardboard with a playing time of only 1.5 minutes : and subsequently stainless steel with only a slightly longer playing time. Or that the first coin-operated 'jukeboxes' (made in the 1700's) were for playing classical music. The museum complex has a pleasant cafe with limited but very acceptable 'fare'. And which has the tallest waiters I have ever seen who must all be members of the university basketball team ! On the downside : the museum is very large and there are few places in the galleries to rest and sit. Also, the gallery staff appear very 'protective' and tend to constantly hover around one disconcertingly. But perhaps this might be because, despite its treasures, the museum appears to attract relatively few visitors and the gallery staff are consequently relatively bored. The old town cemetery behind the museum buildings complex contains the graves of some of the composer Richard Wagner's family : and also that of Prince Poniatowski, the only non-French "Marshal of France" under Napoleon who drowned during the epic Battle of Leipzig in October 1813. Would I patronise again ? Yes ! ... but I would bring along a chair ! ... and make sure I put aside sufficient time to do it justice.

  • Beautiful building, with visiting even if you don't like museums. Wish there was a bit more English, but that's my problem, not theirs. Excellent exhibits in the Musical Instrument Museum, there only part we visited.

  • A fantastic tour of classical, contemporary, and modern musical instrumentation. A genuine guide through musical history, through the means of instrumentation, rather than just the composer. An impartial look at the formation, from the very first piano, to the drum kit.

  • Tolle location.

  • Tolle Instrumentensammlung. Das beste, für Kinder, ist allerdings das Musiklabor, wo man alle möglichen Instrumente ausprobieren kann. Echt toll gemacht!
