The extremely well planned and Bachhaus is a great tribute to the musician in his birth town. The museum and the remnants of the old house are great attractions, but do not miss the demonstration of the musical instruments used during Bach's time.

I love that they play period instruments for you! And that you can walk around an old house looking at cool musical stuff from a great family. There is great signage in both German and English, which makes it probably the best museum in the area (definitely in town). It's inventive too, with the way it presents the family and... More

Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to visit. It has a lot of interactive materials and interesting reading. We attended a musical performance in one of the halls, performed on the musical instruments of that time. It was very interesting don't miss it.

Bach comes alive with this wonderful collection in the historic house. Not old and dusty thanks to innovative display and design.

If you are ever in Eisenach I suggest you to go visit this museum. Its a house Bach lived in for a few years of his life and they turned it into a very nice museum. Its interesting and educative. They even added a new part which is very modern looking where one can relax and listen to Bach's works.... More

The 30 minute music concert is worth it. You get to hear various Bach pieces on instruments the Bach family owned and used. In addition the music concert and the historical part of the museum, there is a new wing with modern interactive displays. You can sit down and put headphones on and listen to various Bach compositions and hear... More

This museum in the lovely old town of Eisenach is a delight if you are a fan of J S Bach. I loved hearing two old organs being played by a very good musician. The new museum building melds well with the oldest house in Eisenach. Whether or not this is the actual house where Bach was born has not... More
