Bach Museum

Short facts

The museum gives you a deep look into the Leipzig-based life and work of Johann Sebastian Bach with its permanent exhibition.

The Bach Archive with its Bach Museum can be found in the Bosehaus. The building is considered one of Leipzig's most important Renaissance buildings. It is also one of the oldest preserved buildings on the southern side of the St. Thomas Church Square. The large permanent exhibition area gives you a view of the world of the St. Thomas Choirmaster and music director Johann Sebastian Bach with precious instruments, documents and works of art. 

Many of his most important compositions were composed in the 27 years Bach lived in Leipzig, including the famous St. John and St. Matthew Passion.

The Bach Museum offers a great programme for children of all ages with various museum educational activities for kindergarten groups and classes from primary and secondary schools, as well as projects such as the summer workshop.
