This is mostly about what Bach meant to Leipzig and what he did during his Leipzig time, not about his oeuvre as such - Bach aficionados ought to visit the exquisite Bach museum in Eisenach instead. But if you are in Leipzig to visit the...More

We had limited time here, but what was most interesting were the original instruments and the autograph scores.

The museum offers the visitor an invite to Bach the man and musician. The displays are interesting and stimulating for both the well-informed adult and inquisitive child. I thoroughly recommend you visit this fine museum.

History of his family ancestors, Bach's own childhood to maturity and the different stages of his life and performances are on display. A quaint garden area is an added bonus.

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

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
