Highly disappointing. The house is beautiful. For the rest you don’t learn anything about Wagner’s music, influence, importance or whatever. This is an hagiographic, morbidly uncritical exhibition on Wagner. You can see the notebook of Wagner, the glasses of Wagner, the gloves of Wagner, the umbrella of Wagner’s wife and even the sofa on which Wagner died. In the new part the bust of Wagner is presented as must be that of Kim Il Sung in Pyongyang. This is ridiculous and above all uninteresting.

Great museum to know all about Richard Wagner. Staff are very friendly. Pay parking is beside the museum. Bathrooms are also available beside the parking space at not cost. Museum entrance $8 for adults and children at not charge. We recommend it.

Interesting place to visit. Wagner was a special charachter for sure. He is buried in his own garden, imagine that. When you are in the area, you simply have to visit this place. It is adjacent to a very beautiful park which is worth a stroll.

You can only go round the back of the house to see Wagner and Cosima's grave. Ther are massive building works going on. Won't be finished for at least another year so check the website before you go!

The home and final resting place of Richard Wagner is not altogether that impressive unless you take into account his notoriety. During my visit there were droves of people, from independant walking tourists to large groups receiving guided tours. Wagner's home is impressive as are so many from that era but it was not open to the public during my visit in April 2012. I was unaware that Wagner and his wife were burried on the grounds until I had already left so I immediately returned to investigate. While I believe I found their resting place without much fanfare, I was delighted to find a rustic marker for what I believe is the grave of the Wagner family cat. Anyway, I had a good time and this attraction should be included in any Bayreuth tour, particularly for lovers of music.

Villa Wahnfried remains a building site in Summer 2015! The collection is inaccessible (as are both opera houses currently) but the graves may be approached from the Hofgarten at the rear. It is regrettable that those with responsibilities for Bayreuth tourism haven't staggered refurbishment of the town's few attractions or else temporarily relocated the Wagner Museum collection.

I went here 26 years ago.There is a wonderful feeling about the place, It's going to be closed for some time, Try the Franz Listz museum across the street instead.

Certainly a must for the Wagner-lover, not so otherwise.The audioguide was excellent. Note that the principal photo on the TripAdvisor site is of the opera house which is nothing to do with the Wagner Museum and nowhere near it.

Many Bayreuuth visitors are there to celebrate Richard Wagner.
All should visit Haus Wahnfried which is a living memorial to Richard and Cosima Wagner.
The foyer and the grand drawing room have many times been on TV or You Tube but this not stop the excitement of being in his house with his music playing in the background with avid fans in attendance.Best time to visit is in the morning

This was an interesting though not desperately informative visit to Wagner's house in Bayreuth (paid for by Ludwig of Bavaria), and the modern Wagner Museum. I particularly enjoyed the photographs of all those who have conducted at the Bayreuth Festival, paralleling the photographs allegedly along two sides of a corridor in the depths of the Festspielhaus itself. The house itself is close to the homes of Siegfried Wagner, Franz Liszt and Jean Paul Richter.
