Opening times are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Guided tours can also be booked outside opening times.
You should allow 60 minutes for your visit. Once an hour, there is a little 20-minute Bach concert on Baroque keyboard instruments (included in the entrance price). Music is played on two house organs, a clavichord, the Silbermann spinet and a harpsichord. Audio stations and the multimedia “Walkable Composition” means that it is easy to lose track of time – visitors can have their ticket stamped at the ticket office in the evenings and are free to come back again the next day.
All texts are in German and English; printed museum guides can also be purchased in French and Japanese. The modern part of the Museum has access for the disabled. In the old building, only the ground floor can be accessed by wheelchair.
The Museum also has a small Baroque garden and the “Café Kantate” serving cakes and gateaux from a patisserie in Eisenach.
Groups of 10 people or more: €7 per person
School pupils, students: €5
Family ticket (parents with schoolchildren): €20
Children under 6: free
