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.

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 quite a small museum, but extremely interesting. It celebrates the composer's life by providing interactive musical displays and original manuscripts and scores.
