“How to present a composers house”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

This is the best museum I have been to devoted to a single composer. The furnishing of the rooms, the memorabilia, the interactive conducting, the listening facilities, the materials available are all first class

Highly recommended if you have any interest in Music,

“Brilliant”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

The Mendelssohn haus has been newly renovated, and just opened in feburary this year. It is very modern inside, and also quite large. There is a room where you can conduct an orchestra. You look at an electronical display, pick up a stick, and look at the various electronical bars which show different instruments. You can change the volume, tempo, and even the lighting of the room. Also, his paintings upstairs are marvellous.
Definetily worth visiting.

“Sunday morning concerts”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

A wonderful museum which offers the visitor a glimpse of Mendelssohn’s home life, the quantity and quality of his compositions and his immense talent as a musician. The added bonus is a morning concert on Sundays which also enables you to have free admission to the museum.

“Stunning period piece”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

My wife and I loved the quiet and sunny setting of Mendelssohn's house, where he lived for the last 2 yrs of his wife - and left just the way he left it. His watercolors are there too! We loved going to a free concert that night, highlighting music students from the School at the House. This is a gem!
