The facility was beautiful, and the simplicity of the room in which Beethoven was born was resounding. We did not get the audio guides, but used the written pamphlets given. My children learned quite a bit, but I would have liked to see furniture that would have been there in his time. There were many great instruments, handwritten music, ear... More

the museum is in overall very good condition, however more description for english language visitors would help. The interactive part in a separate building across the yard especially appealed to our 12 year old who really enjoyed learning about the great composer this way. Unfortunately wheelchair access is not possible...but that is not really surprising in such an old historic... More

The house is a bit hidden, but with but if help easy to find, staff was very friendly, inside the museum you get to learn a lot about Beethoven and that era. Everything was impressive, ur not allowed to take pics but that's fine with me.

It was interesting, good value for money but not much to do. Glad I went to it but wouldn't go again.

It's interesting to see if you are in Bonn and have an hour to kill, but I sure wouldn't make a special trip for it! I wish his music were piped throughout the house.

Beethoven's birth house (and a small garden) turned into museum, fascinating place with preserved unique documents and objects- it gives you an insight to Beethoven's life not only as a composer but also as a child, his first steps in music world, through the adolescence and challenges and success he achieved as a world-famous composer. It's also remarkable to learn... More

This is the house where Beethoven was born and where he lived in Bonn. It isn't a very big house, but when visiting it, you can learn a lot from Beethoven and his life. If you have enough time, you can book a Beethoven concert there too... musicians play in a small room and it is almost a private concert...... More

nice building, gives good overview of his life but missed music - you only had music when you rented a auto guide
