This beautiful museum is actually three museums : the Museum of Ethnography, the Museum of Musical Instruments and the Museum of Applied Arts. A fabulous collection of varied objects.
The museum is named after its benefactor, Franz Dominic Grassi, a Leipzig businessman ( 1801-1880) who...More
Only saw the Jugendstil collection, which is superb, and the Ethnological, which is the best of its type, compared with, say, the Pitt Rivers in Oxford. Very good Ainu items from Japan and nice Chinese porcelain. The Johannisfriedhof behind the complex is atmospheric and contains...More

The museum for musical instruments is unique. The evolution of not only instruments but also the music script and surrounding art ist displayed in a very neat and interesting manner.
the only problem was that the...More
A bit out of the center but definitely worth the minor effort to get there -- trams and buses make it easy.
The Ethnographic Museum -- concentrating on Asia and the Pacific Islands is certainly among the best and best organised we've every seen. True...More
There are audio guides available, but since we were in a group, we thought being on headsets would be a little isolating. We did the musical instruments, ethnography, and the tattos and piercing exhibits. All well stocked with things to look at.
This museum is three museums in one. We decided to buy a combination ticket for all three - big mistake! We spent over four hours going around the museum most of it spent in the ethnology and applied arts parts of the museum, by the...More
I got an audio guide in English which is really good but some of the numbers on the exhibits were missing! As the museum was really quiet it sort of added to the fun trying to find the correct exibit for the commentary!. I ended...More

Applied arts covers everything from antiquity to the present day. It also moves between Europe and Asia. It has a small collection of antiquities, the collection really kicks off during the...More
This is a huge museum. We only saw the applied arts section. The treasures in there are superb. You see examples of the most exquisite craft work and silver smithing. Unfortunately photography is forbidden, even without flash which is a shame as the collection of...More

Hello Emily, it depends on which museum you want to visit. The Grassimuseum houses three museums: Museum of Applied Arts (permanent exhibition: 2-3 hours, special exhibition: 1-2 hours), Museum of Music instruments. (1-2 hours) and the Museum of Ethnology (2-3 hours). So you can spend one day there, it's perfectly well for enjoying leisure time, because of its cemetery, which looks like a park and the highly inviting Museum Café.
