We visited two exhibitions, one of furniture making with some stunning local pieces in it - a couple of beautiful secretaries and lots of very fine chairs. The second was a big show of Jugendstil with lots of local, but also French and Scandinavian equivalents. Although the signage and interpretation of the former was in German only, some of the...

The building itself is very beautiful and the display itself is also amazing. Disappointment No. 1 - Labeling of the exhibits in in German only, perhaps English would help. Dissappointment No. 2 - Very little hands-on experience. Hello, this is about the music and instruments, why not to dedicate a room for little visitors to show them that music instruments... More

Every first Wednesday of the month you can visit this museum for free. But that is not why I like it so much! It harbours three elaborate museums in one, has a vast permanent collection and interesting temporary exhibitions. It is located in a beautiful building, which is very well layed out and they have the best guards in the... More

We enjoyed the progression and presentation of musical instruments presented at this museum. Accompaniment sound recordings added to the experience. The only thing the museum was lacking was a hands-on portion allowing a better sense of the actual instruments.

The actual collection was vast and very detailed. I enjoyed the visit very much. However, the lady at the ticket counter was very rude, and you always get the feeling that she wants more money from you. She asked for passports for anyone who wanted to get a discounted/free ticket! Even little children only about 5 years old had to... More

If you are visiting Leipzig, Grassi museum is definitely worth a visit. It is a comparatively modern museum which is well organised and with impressive creative inputs. We visited it without much expectations and we were positively surprised by the collections and the efforts put in to display the items in a very interesting way. For example, the lights and...

I chose the one dedicated to the applicated arts , and there you can follow the evolution of the interior design from art deco to the 70s. The other two museums are about the Evolution... More
