All three of our group enjoyed this experience. Perhaps the best part of this museum is the live performance given on five different period instruments.

Lovely displays, interesting instruments and great music! The home provides live performances as well as a great lesson on the life and musical journey of Bach. Would highly suggest this attraction. It is very close to downtown and the Luther home.

The Bachhaus and tour is a great experience. From the demonstration on Bach's instruments, to the self guided tours and music bubble room, a Bach/classical/baroque music enthusiast will be in heaven!
