There is a rather interesting electronic conducting game in one room, which I suggest you have a go with. But more importantly, there is a lot to learn about Mendelssohn. Mendelssohn is one of my favourite composers and if you're interested in his life and...More

Good stop to see how the Mendelssohns lived back in the day. Opportunities to listen to a lot of music but we were on a group tour so got what we could.

A fascinating look at Mendelssohn, replete with an amazing room that allows you, electronically, conduct an orchestra performing one of his works.

For anyone enjoying classical music, this is a must. Mendelsohn was a brilliant composer and accomplished artist. Extremely well traveled and liberally minded for his time

Museum showing where the artist lived. Quite small but instructive. Concert are organised on Sunday morning.

Especially good it the do-it-yourself conducting activity, where you take the baton in front of a virtual orchestra. Each section of the orchestra is a loudspeaker column you can walk round and hear the individual sounds. Friendly staff in the reception/coffee bar.
