A fantastic state of the art museum, making excellent use of technology to bring Bach's life and music to life for us. Use of iPads, fantastic displays, archival manuscripts, original instruments and accompanying information makes for a wonderful museum. There is a great sound library for archival and modern recordings. The free audio guide is terrific.

The Bach musem is NOT the house in which Bach lived, as that has been destroyed. This wonderful Museum is a delight to any musician, contatining many resources, including and organ which he has played, and interesting facts about his family. It also contains many parts of the cantatas, which are chainged around a few times a year so that the scores are not exposed to too much light. The museum is well priced, and audio guides are free. Garden is relaxing.

Small but tell you everything about Bach. I was not impressed by the outside in the beginning but once you put the tour listening device on, follow the steps, you will be happy to know all the facts. but you have to be a music fan. Disappoint with the museum: they carried very little 'Bach' stuffs.

I would highly recommend the visit to the Bach Museum. You can get to see different articles donated by several Bach colectors as well as to get to know the story behind the musician, how he raised his children, how we used to study with other musicians during his youth and his work, manuscrypts and the life during those times.

I highly recommend you this visit, it is very good and very well organized. A guided tour would be a plus.

A very informative museum about the Bach family, their compositions, their lives. A pity there aren't more original artefacts, but it would seem that very few remain in existence.
