We thoroughly enjoyed the music and exhibits, especially the live concert performed on instruments from Bach's time. The two women at the front desk were more than just unfriendly, they were rude. Their faces were stern and even angry. My friend speaks German and is...More

Bach did write here but probably wasn't born here. They have a collection of antique instruments which they demonstrate. Great listening opportunities throughout the museum. A must for classical music fans.

This is now not thought to be the birth place of Bach, but is a house of the same age and near to his birth house. The self guide tour gives a lot of information about Bach and there are several places to sit and...More

One of my favorite museums on our two week trip -- The high point is the musician who played Bach compositions on some old organs, harpsichords, and clavichords. We also enjoyed the multiple head sets to listen to different Bach compositions and the room playing...More

Very nice historical house with some good historical sceneries. Nice collection of musical instruments and literature, great discovery of the genius of Bach.

Try to go when there's a demonstration of Bach's music (I don't know how frequently this is done, but it was fantastic when we were there). Otherwise a small museum which was interesting and well presented, but wouldn't take a whole day

This was very nice. A man played Bach's compositions on his actual instruments. It was an amazing site to be where he played and composed, and to hear HIS instruments come to life. We loved it

I am very impressed by the Bach house. My young kids loved it! Every hour there is a 20 minute introduction & concert to instruments that were around when Bach lived. The house is well organized, great music samples everywhere. We all loved it.

I did not think I would be that impressed but this museum is top quality in its offer. The audio, unusual instruments, and performances are great. Plenty to get absorbed in.

A highlight of a visit to Eisenach, this house may or may not have been the birthplace of Bach (the historical record is unclear, but there seems to be a consensus it's close enough and similar enough to where he was born that it fits)....More
