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.

It was pure luck that I arrived in Leipzig during Bach's 333 birthday celebration. There were endless activities and I managed to catch some of them. And I happened to also arrive on the day when there was no entrance fee. What a treat. Being...More

I didn't know much about Bach but certainly do now having been in museum and learnt from exhibits etc. I recommend a visit, this museum is different and has some interesting interactions.
