We had a great time in this museum, learning a lot about Brahms life and looking at original copies of his scores. Once of his piano's sits upstairs, and visitors can play it if they want. It's a small museum, you don't need a lot of time to go over it, but the combined ticket with the Komponisten-Quartier Museum (Baroque... More

Any music lover is sure to get a lot out of this museum. Located on a quiet back street, you have to ring the doorbell to be let in, and you'll receive a warm welcome from the staff, who are obviously just as passionate about Brahms as their visitors. Five euro entry to the Brahms museum. Leaflets etc. available in... More

Hamburg is Brahms' birthplace,but the house he was born unfortunately was destroyed by the war. This is the museum dedicated to him with exhibits of many documents of his photos, copied version of music notes,concert programs and letters. Brahms bust and stand welcomes you as you enter the lobby. You need to ring the bell and a volunteer staff will... More

A small but charming museum, located on a BEAUTIFUL street. I found it very insightful and interesting, and I even got to play Brahms' piano! A relatively quick stop, it took me 40 mins, but I went through all the details and played his piano for a bit. A great attraction for anyone who enjoys classical music! Information Handouts at...

Save your time and money. There is little to see here. Rude staff. Johannes Brahams deserved better.

A lovely little museum, run by very enthusiastic volunteers. Very informative, and very authentic memorabilia about Brahms ' life. Entry fee of E4 was reasonable. Highly recommended if you are interested in music.

The Brahms museum is just a small house where the composer stayed for a while. The memorabilia are nice to see, but the attraction is the old piano on the second floor. If you can, you may even play on it. It is asked if you want a guide through the house, which we found very informative. If your into... More

Although this was not the house where he was born (the real one was bombarded during the last war), it was touching to see his belongings, see and touch his piano and manuscripts. It is a place especially for musicians, and interested in the lives of composers, so for me the entrance fee did not seem expensive compared to what... More

It is a small museum (about 3 rooms) and the entry costs 6 €. It has some interesting notes but the price paid was not worth it. In the next door exist the telemann museum. We do not visit it because both closed at 17H00. The interesting was the zone. Enter in the corridor between the two museums and indulge... More
