We enjoyed visiting this museum. For us, we would have preferred more English translations, which was done for about 1/3 of the collection. It is a small collection in humble spaces. There are interactive components for listening to historical instruments and playback devices. There was also a playable clavichord, which we enjoyed.

Like the city of Bach, this museum shows whole bunch of different types of organs, clavichord, string instruments, grand pianos, and all other instruments. I did it without a guide but I think there should be one for group visits. It was an interesting experience. Visit if you have time.

The collection of self-playing instruments was... More

The museum is arranged by era, starting with the Renaissance, then Baroque, Classical, Biedermeier period, Romantic, End of the 19th Century, and 20th Century. Parts of it concentrate on Leipzig composers, instrument makers, and collectors. But it is much more than a local collection. The labels are only in German; some of the museum employees stationed in the rooms speak... More
