We loved the Museum of Applied Arts. This was one of our trip highlights. The applied arts/decorative arts exhibits were well organized and displayed, with good German and English text. We especially love the Jugendstihl/Art Nouveau styles, and we loved what we saw of that here. We spent several happy hours on this. We did a drive-by on the Ethnographic... More

What a great find. We were fortunate to know some l9cals who took us here. Leipzig is a 'small' city and it wad sunday. No crowds nor lines. Bonus. There are several parts to this museum but we only saw parts of the applied arts section. Small and so well laid out. All the objects there were saved a yesr... More

Do not miss this museum!!!!! The exhibitions are fabulous and well curated. All areas of the world are represented. There is so much to see you could easily spend 3 hours here. One 9f the BEST ethnographic museums i have visited. It's only a short walk from Augustusplatz

There are three separate museums at the Grassi. The musical instrument collection is marvelous. In many cases you can actually hear recordings of the instruments. The displays are beautiful and easy to see. The only drawback is that the signage is almost exclusively in German. In addition to many historical instruments, there is a curious selection of 20th century instruments,... More

Good collection, but not as many audio examples as I thought there might be. Not expensive even adding the audio self-guide, a pleasant hour and a half's exploration.

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
