Besides of the usual amount of reading on the walls of museums, this one also gives you the opportunity to have a break on the couch, pick some of the Bach's composition from an interactive list and listen to it.

Web site says 10 am - 6 pm Tuesday - Sunday. Leipzig is a town with a lot of music of all kinds. If you are there for Bach, I would say schedule your visit when there is something good going on at St. Thomas Church across... More
