I visited the world exhibition and it was great. Saw fantastic stuff and spent over 2 hours. I just think it's a pity that they don't have more stuff from europe. However 8 euro entry was absolutely worth it.

I really loved this building and its contents. I visited in July during a heatwave but managed to make it around the building to see what I wanted to see even though there was no air conditioning. Staff really helpful. Gardens and surrounds lovely. A must see in Leipzig. I walked from my hotel (Marriott)

Grassimuseum, consist of three exhibitions (I think). I went to see the musical instruments collection and I wasn't just pleased with what I saw, I was amazed. There is a huge amount of instruments (especially weird ones). There are instruments that you can't see anywhere else, like instruments made of glass or porcelane, a piano with a curved keyboard and... More

We went to see the musical instruments but our enjoyment was rather limited due to the total lack of English guide or notes. The see & hear displays were good however and we did enjoy playing some instruments upstairs in section designed for kids!

My pianist partner visited the musical instrument museum, whilst I hung out in the forecourt , with its stunning art nouveau setting in the sunshine, witnessing actors practising for their performances later and school children at some kind of sports day with the architectural wonder as a back drop- time stopped. She found the museum fascinating and our lunch here... More

Nowhere else in the world can one see Christofori's 1726 piano. This was a thrill. Plus the best musical instrument collection anywhere. All presented flawlessly!

There are several museums in this complex; we visited the musical instrument museum which features medieval through modern instruments. It's a small museum but it has an extensive collection, well displayed. There are some sound examples - it would have been nice if there were more. Music fans could easily spend 2+ hours here, but more casual visitors could likely... More

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
