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.

If you are in Bayreuth, you have to come here. Very good value at 8 Euro including audio guide and well laid out and informative.

The original home of the Wagner family plus a comprehensive museum of the works of the composer. Recommended.

It was interesting to see the reconstructed home of Wagner and to try and work out the complicated family tree of the composer. It was difficult to find our way around the new building.

Last time we visited the house was about to be closed to refurbish the museum. What they have now done is to strip the old artifacts out of the house and to restore it to what it might have looked like if the Wagners had...More

Probably about 2 hours but you could easily be longer as it is totally fascinating! Make sure you stroll in the garden and it's lovely to go through to the park beyond. Have a great time!
