I had a small visit at this museum and I didn't see all the rooms in the first floor. In the second floor, you get to see the apartment Mendelssohn lived in Leipzig. There you can find a lot of things about his life and his familly as well as about his social status and his trips around Europe. In... More

The house where Felix Mendelssohn died is a nice little museum that shows his work, his apartment, plays some of his music, and sometimes also hosts concerts. Very nicely done

We weren't sure about going round but glad we did. The English audio tour was easy to use and a must unless your German is really good. Enjoyed the use of technology especially listening to his music and following the score on the individual screens but especially liked the room where you could conduct the orchestra and once I worked...

The house has Mendelssohn's art work, musical works and other family possessions. Audio guides are provided in many languages. The listening exhibit/conducting exhibit on the main floor is very neat! An interactive experience for young and old. I loved it!!

My daughter and I visited this wonderful museum at the beginning of our Germany trip. The museum is in the home where Mendelssohn lived and the first floor has a music library where you can listen to his music and a room where you can be the conductor. The second floor is furnished rooms as his home was with other... More

For those who enjoy Mendelssohn's music this museum is a gem. Doesn't take long to visit and provides insight into the composer's very positive life. Coffee and a pastry in the cafe was very good.

I really enjoyed finding my own way around Leipzig while staying there on an official visit to attend a conference. I was able to visit the Mendelssohn-Haus museum which was the place where he lived with his family, meaning his wife and children. It's a good place to tour with family as they have a room where you can conduct... More
