We easily spent almost 2 hours here. There was so much to learn about Bach. We especially enjoyed the special exhibition about his students.

So much information about Bach here - and they have the original of two paintings of him. The staff is a bit snotty. Artifacts are superb. They even go into a lot of detail about his students and some of the copyists. Pity though -...More

A must for anyone interested in the life and times of JSB; with so much to see and listen to it was hard to do justice to all that it had to offer.

We had a guided tour with a local guide who was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic and brought the museum to life. Such wonderful artefacts including the opportunity actually to see original handwriting and music written by the Master himself. If in Leipzig, you must visit.

This is a great museum to learn about Bach whether you are a musician or not. It is well-organized, includes a detailed audio guide, and eye-catching displays. The exhibit integrates Bach's music, family history, Leipzig history, and other related topics coherently. I'd recommend a visit.

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
