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!!

Went with partner who us pianist and loves m'sohn. I learnt much of the tragedy of his life ( his cardiovascular weakness like the Klimts, his travels- we have visited Fingel's Cave one Easter) and his artistic gift ...beautiful painter. It seems to have extensive archives and a crazy fun room in which you can conduct his music in. Great... More

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

This kind of museum makes me feel very happy. You can almost feel yourself as a guest by the great composer. Everything is renovated in very high standards. The place is very informative and cosy in same time. You are welcomed very friendly by the staff. Try the conductingsimulator in the downstairs!

The House is only 100m from the Gewandhaus and is the last address of Mendelssohn. There is a lot of information about the composer and a reconstruction of his study as he left it. You can try your hand at conducting his music (not as easy as one might think), and there is a small tea/coffee cake facility. The tea... More
