I spent 3 hours here reading about the instruments. There are audio to listen to the various sounds. However, I find this museum not very friendly to the general public. Could be more interactive. Should include more audio for every music instruments.

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...More
